For December travel, fly nonstop from Denver to Fort Lauderdale for $102 roundtrip on Southwest. If you are in Florida and looking to explore Colorado in December, this fare also works from Fort Lauderdale to Denver.
As an example, I found seats departing Denver DEN on Wednesday, December 12, returning from Fort Lauderdale FLL on Monday, December 17.
You'll find just a few other scattered dates available in December. This price is very scarce.
Similar fares are available on Spirit for winter travel in January/early February, but Spirit charges extra for everything—even carry-on bags. This fare on Southwest includes a normal carry-on allowance, plus two free checked bags. Add Southwest's no change fee policy to that and it's a no-brainer that Southwest is the better option on this route if you are looking to travel in December.
