Chances are minimal that we’ll see a white Christmas in Florida this year. Actually, Tampa Theatre is playing White Christmas that week, but that’s probably not going to make you bust out a sweater and mittens… do you really own a pair of mittens?
Here are some good deals I found from Tampa International Airport for Christmas week. All of these flights are for a 7 day stay leaving the Wednesday before Christmas on December 20 and returning to Tampa on Wednesday, December 27. Definitely avoiding travel those last few days before Christmas and the day after Christmas will save you some cash. I usually fly on Christmas day itself. You save a bundle and won’t have to deal with insane crowds. If you get an evening flight, you’ll still get to spend Christmas morning with friends and family.
None of these cities will guarantee you a snowfall on Christmas, but if you’ve been nice this year, Santa might work some magic. Here are 5 of my favorite picks that are an easy 2-3 hour flight from Florida. And most are priced right at the moment from Tampa.
