Movies: With a host of new movies opening this holiday season, this is the perfect post celebration, relaxing activity. Visit Fandango to find the perfect movie and theater for your family.
Restaurants: After days of cooking and entertaining, you may just be ready for a meal out. The following restaurants are just a few of those open on Christmas Day: Casa D’Angelo (Fort Lauderdale and Boca), Le Bistro (Lighthouse Point), IHOP, Denny’s, Buca di Beppo, Starbucks, and TGI Fridays. Call the location of the restaurant you wish to attend to confirm that they are open and their hours of operation. So many more restaurants seem to be open today than in years past. Just because we didn’t list it, doesn’t mean it isn’t open. Give them a call!
The Wilson Group wishes you the happiest holiday season!
