The holidays are a time to relax and enjoy all that you’ve achieved throughout the year. You look back and reflect on your accomplishments, and use your hard-earned money to spoil the ones you love. One way to show the people close to you in your life how much you care for them is to take them on a luxury vacation this Christmas. Sure, Christmas at home has its perks, but every once in a while, it’s nice to splurge a little and experience the Holidays in a totally new place. After all, travel is one of the best ways to make new memories, and traveling with your family during the holidays makes it all the more meaningful.
New York, New York
You can’t go wrong with New York City during the holidays. From the Central Park Christmas Tree lighting to the Times Square New Years countdown, there are few places that can match New York for the holidays. However, if all the glitz and glam aren’t for you, don’t worry. The Big Apple has plenty more to offer those who like a quaint and quiet Holiday celebration. Put on your winter coat and take a stroll through Greenwich Village and enjoy all the beautiful historical architecture decorated with Christmas cheer, take a cruise through the harbor and see all the city lights sparkling, or go ice skating in Central Park on a quiet evening.
Food is also an important part of the Holiday season, and in New York, you’ll have endless options. With some of the best Italian, Chinese, and American food in the country, you’ll have endless options as you stroll the streets taking in the sights and drinking in the lights.
If the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple doesn’t quite appeal to you, don’t worry, there are other great options for a luxurious Christmas vacation. One option that tops anyone’s list is Aspen Colorado. With some of the most luxurious ski resorts on the planet and some of the softest powder any skier could dream of, it’s no wonder why thousands flock to the mountain town every year for skiing and other wintertime pastimes – just remember to pack your ski suit!
Before you hit the slopes, though, you should take advantage of everything else the town has to offer. From luxury dining experiences featuring local meat, like bison and elk, to craft breweries and relaxing mountain lodges, you’ll have everything you need for a Holiday getaway. If it’s in your budget, opt for a hotel room with wide windows overlooking the mountains. You won’t regret it when you wake up Christmas morning to see a glorious sunrise over snowcapped mountains.
Ah, Paris, the city of lights. In Christmastime, that name takes on a whole new meaning. Paris is undoubtedly the most romantic city in the world, and makes the perfect holiday destination for newlyweds or lovers escaping for their first Christmas together. The city has so much to offer, from sunset strolls down cobblestone streets, the smell of fresh pastries wafting in the air, to the hustle and bustle of the Champs Elysees, featuring some of the most stunning architecture in the city.
Be sure to try some of the local cuisine as well, featuring wintertime treats like mulled wine and delicious pastries that will surely spark cheer.
If you’re tired of the snow year after year, and you’re ready to take a break from the cold and enjoy Christmas on warm sandy beaches, then Honolulu is the place for you. With warm temperatures ranging in the mid-70’s, you won’t be freezing your toes off anymore – instead, you’ll be wearing flip-flops! Enjoy a resort with a pool, access to some of the finest beaches in the country, and delicious Hawaiian cuisine featuring plenty of pineapple.
Sure, it’s not your traditional Christmas celebration, but by changing things up a bit you’re sure to create memories the whole family will look back on joyfully for years to come. Plus, if you’re feeling nostalgic for a more traditional Christmas atmosphere, you can always put on a Santa hat and get the gang together to sing some classic Christmas carols.
This Holiday season, treat your family to a luxury vacation in one of the world’s finest Christmas destinations. Trust us, you won’t regret it!
