Oh What Fun! That Dope Mom Guide To Holiday Adventures

It's the most magical time of the year and I am ecstatic! The holidays have always been a special time for me. Probably because it's my mother's favorite holiday so she's always made it extremely special for us. I have so many wonderful memories of those eventful days growing up and while gifts are always wonderful my memories mostly consist of the things we did together. This is while when I became a mother I knew our focus would be on the time we spend together throughout this joyful time. For my family and I, local adventures equal ever last memories and tons of fun! Below I'll be sharing our list of events we will be attending, in these Duval streets. If you do not live in Jacksonville Florida, no worries just use these places as inspiration to find something similar in your city. 

1. The Black Santa Experience-  You can simply stop by to take a picture with Santa or you can step it up to create a long lasting memory by staying for story time and even play games. Click here to get all the details.

2. WinterFest- The Winter Fest at Adventure Landing has always been a hit with my kids. Shipwreck Island Water Park is transformed into a Winter Wonderland with tons of activities. There is something for everyone! Ice skating, cookie decorating, you can even visit Santa. Learn more here.
