Living in Florida at Christmastime can be a little odd. There is no snow, you see palm trees, and Christmas carols on the beach don’t have the same yuletide feeling. That said, I hate snow and am happy to find ways to be merry without freezing.
Enchant is an indoor light display, ice skating rink, and holiday market sponsored by the Hallmark Channel. We went to the one in St. Petersburg, but there are also locations in Dallas, Las Vegas, Nashville, Sacramento, San Jose, Scottsdale, and Washington DC.
The highlight of the display is the maze called “Santa’s Magic Timepiece.” You can get a paper passport and get it stamped at each station in the maze or just wander through taking pictures as we did during our visit.
The lights were impressive and filled the stadium.
The windmill was pretty cool and crowded with people taking selfies.
There were some whales swimming.
An area with a Saturday Night Fever-esque light-up floor kept kids entertained.
A small area was set up to screen Hallmark Channel movies and host other performances.
Another interactive area that looked like massive jellyfish.
Santa’s Magic Timepiece
There were several bars throughout, but the one upstairs was the most festive.
The bars sold cocktails in blinking Christmas light cups.
Throughout the venue there are several booths selling gifts, chocolate, and more. There are also several food vendors offering everything from tacos to pizza to wraps and more.
Anthony’s Take: Enchant is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. It’s not cheap as tickets start at $32 plus fees for adults and $20 plus fees for children. The light display is impressive and it was a fun way to feel a little festive.

“Living in Florida at Christmastime can be a little odd.

LOL. Yeah I’ve seen some of the iguanas drop when I was in the Miami area.
