A spur of the moment trip to West Palm Beach, Florida brought me to a fun holiday activity, the Sandi Land Holiday Sand Sculptures event. The sand castle theme was ‘Holiday in Paradise’ for this particular year. These were the most amazing and ritziest sand castle sculptures I had ever laid eyes on! Sandi Land runs from December 1-31st and has incredible tropical-themed holiday sand displays.
Amazing and Genius Sand Castle Displays
The Sandi Land event displays the world’s only Christmas tree made of 600 tons of sand, built on the Great Lawn and measuring 35 feet tall. Four other sculptures are located nearby around the West Palm Waterfront. Holiday themed photo boards are scattered throughout for you to pose with. Other points of interest include playing Peppermint Putt-Putt (which offers 9 holes) or enjoying the nightly light shows between 6:30-9:30.
The “Merry Kiss Much” sand castle features two angelfish kissing under the mistletoe, surrounded by other sea creatures. It was super cute. “Lollipop-a-Palooza” included Three Dogfish Night, Stone Crabs, and Shrimp Bizkit at this music festival. Santa with his elves having hot cocoa was brilliant. These artists are so creative and clever!
Time for a Delicious Lunch
My daughter, Taylor, and I had a delicious lunch at E.R. Bradley’s Saloon, the landmark restaurant on the Intracoastal waterfront. What a funky little place, with a rich clientele, great menu, and impeccable service! We sat in the bar to watch the football game. The place was packed!
For lunch, I ordered the Blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos with sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, and shredded cabbage. The tacos were epic! They came with white rice and black beans. Taylor had the Chicken Fingers. While our meal was a little on the pricey side, it was worth it. E.R. Bradley’s also offers complimentary valet parking when dining in the restaurant.
Holiday Sand Sculptures Was a Real Treat
You never know what you will find on an impromptu road trip. Hopefully, you will be as lucky as I was. For us, sand castles with a holiday theme and good eats were a stellar way to spend the afternoon in the Sunshine State.
