In years past, Long Beach has had plenty of options to get into the holiday spirit! There was the Belmont Shore Christmas Parade, the Daisy Avenue Christmas Tree Lane, and of course the Naples Boat Parade. Unfortunately, as with many things this year, those were all cancelled due to COVID. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to celebrate and see some lights this year! Here are some COVID safe ideas to help you get in the holiday spirit.
Holiday Light Displays
Yes! You can still see light displays this year. Our friends at The Long Beach Post have compiled a list of the best holiday lights in Long Beach so you can drive by and see them. You can find that list HERE.
Of course there won’t be any Naples Boat Parade this year, but that doesn’t mean Naples residents are decorating. In fact, some people think they have gone even more over the top this year because of all the cancelled holiday events. Walk around Naples on foot or explore by gondola!
Did you know some of the tallest Christmas trees can be found in the LA area? You can find the link to all of those HERE! If you’re looking for a regular Christmas tree you have plenty of options HERE as well. However, if you’re looking for a holiday adventure when picking out your tree, try visiting the Sequoia National Forest! In specific, designated areas you can pick out your own tree within the forest! Sounds like a great getaway!
Finally, you can create a parade float at your house. While the Belmont Shore Christmas parade won’t go on this year, the Belmont Shore Business Association is hosting its own virtual parade! Throughout the month they are highlighting floats people have created in their front yard. Submissions are accepted until the 24th so you still have plenty of time to enter.
Home for the Holidays
We know the holidays look different this year, and real estate does too! From virtual parades to virtual open houses, all of us are finding ways to adapt! If a new home is on your wish list this season, we can still help with that. Check out how our marketing has changed during COVID over on our marketing page. If you’re staying put for the holidays, we wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season!
