Your Florida Weather in December
Average High...77 Degrees

I always like to share with you the Florida weather for the current month, because if you're planning a Florida vacation, then weather is very important. So here is your Florida weather in December with an average high of 77 degrees, an average low of 62 and minimal rainfall of 2.65.

The second important thing I like to share with my readers is what a wonderful, charming and sexy town Delray Beach is and why it's considered one of the top destination resorts in Florida -- in addition to being rated one of the best Florida family beaches.

Since my opinion is biased, I like to use supporting evidence (other than just my own opinion) and this month I'll be using an article from Florida Monthly Magazine to brag about our historically-famous Atlantic Avenue.

Our Historically-Famous Atlantic Avenue
Voted BEST MAIN STREET in Florida

Our historically-famous Atlantic Avenue was voted BEST MAIN STREET in Florida as part of the 15th Annual "Best of Florida" Awards given out by Florida Monthly Magazine, a publication with more than 800,000 readers!

I proudly share the above information with you knowing full-well that they couldn't have picked a better main street! I hope one day soon you get to experience for yourself our famous Atlantic Avenue.

It's Christmas in Delray Beach, Florida

Well, if you've been to downtown Delray Beach this month, you already looks a lot like Christmas in Delray Beach, this is for sure!

100 foot Christmas tree

All The Way From Detroit, Michigan

Look at what the Detroit News is saying about Delray Beach, Florida!

From The Detroit News:

Today, there are Segway rentals on the beach across from the Delray Beach Marriott Hotel a block away and a 100-foot Christmas tree in Old School Square downtown, where the black community started Delray's first school in the late 1800s.

The community's towering, walk-through tree also has an interesting history: formerly displayed at Parrot Jungle in Miami, it got a new life in Delray Beach seven years ago when the community rented just part of it, the 50-foot top half.

It proved so popular that residents rallied and purchased the entire tree two years later for $80,000.
