Due to hectic work and school schedules, family visits throughout the year can sometimes be few and far between, but the winter holidays are a great time to get the entire family together to enjoy the Christmas spirit. Whether you are interested in a low key hotel to enjoy or would rather a more Christmas themed getaway, the possibilities are endless. Listed below are just a few of many different Christmas getaways available.
New Hampshire Polar Express
The Polar Express is a beloved childhood story about a little boy who takes a ride on a train while searching for the truth. Even though it is a fictional story, you and your family can enjoy your own ride on the Polar Express that leaves from either Lincoln or North Conway Village. The two hour journey is full of Christmas cheer and sneak peeks of Santa and his helper elves.
New York's North Pole
Since the odds are likely that you and your family can not make it to the North Pole in the Arctic Circle to see Santa before his trek on Christmas Eve, the next best thing is visiting the North Pole in New York. The Adirondack Mountain town makes their own version of the North Pole an unforgettable one with tons of Christmas joy and memories that will last a lifetime.
Toronto’s Christmas Market
Toronto has an annual street market each year that was inspired by other European markets. These markets are very family friendly and they include music performers, beer gardens, carolers, a carnival, and of course Santa Claus and his reindeer. This is a great place to go if you are looking for a family getaway this Christmas. If it is your first time visiting Toronto this Christmas consider staying downtown. Most importantly make sure you and your family get a chance to enjoy the Distillery Christmas Market.
Florida's Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World in Florida gives you and your family to enjoy the Christmas season in a warmer climate. Walt Disney World is always full of cheer, but around the holidays it transforms into a Christmas getaway. Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade offers the traditional Christmas parade atmosphere with a bit of a Disney twist while Cinderella gives light to her castle with a fireworks show. Walt Disney World is a Christmas getaway that is fun for the entire family.
The holiday season offers the most opportune time for many families to get together and spend time together. Whether you are looking for a low key getaway to enjoy time with the family, a traditional Christmas getaway where you can enjoy the snow and winter or you are looking for a warmer getaway where you can still get in the Christmas spirit, there is a perfect Christmas vacation for you.
