Besides themed events such as wine tastings, the Brightline express train service, which regularly runs among Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, introduces the Polar Express train ride from November 11 through January 1. Based on the best-selling children’s book, the magical ride departs from its Fort Lauderdale station with Santa’s helpers, hot chocolate and cookies, and a souvenir sleigh bell to take home. Passengers of all ages are encouraged to don their jammies. Book by November 10th for special perks. The Miami Design District gets into the spirit with its Holiday Miami Market for Makers with 80 vendors on November 10-11 at the Moore Building (191 NE 40th Street). Launching soon in Palm Beach, Stoney Clover Lane’s accessories with adorable, custom patches, pictured, also make great presents.
