There is nothing like spending time with family during the holidays. However, why not switch it up? Why not take the family on a cross-country adventure? If you need to breathe fresh life into your holiday celebrations or even want to create a new tradition, getting out on the open road and visiting some of the most beautiful places around the country can be a great way to celebrate!
4 Destinations to Celebrate the Holidays
Though we have to say that Big Spring is a mighty fine place to stay during the holidays, there may be a few other destinations that you should check out along the way.
Yosemite National Park, California
Nothing is more spellbinding than being in an ancient forest for the holidays. Yosemite National Park is home to the Grizzly Giant and California Tunnel Trees and offers breathtaking sites at Glacier Point, Badger Pass, and Half Dome. You can also enjoy a bit of climbing, hiking, backpacking, fishing, and other activities, but check the weather report before you go out on a winter adventure. If snow keeps you RV-bound, the area also offers amazing dining experiences such as the seven-course Bracebridge Dinner.
Estes Park, Colorado
Colorado is your destination if you love sunny days and wintery nights. During the holiday season, Estes Park turns into a winter wonderland with shops full of Christmas cheer as well as unforgettable dining options. Love skiing or snowboarding? Enjoy the local slopes as well as the famous Vail, Breckenridge, and Copper Mountain ski resorts. If you choose to spend Christmas dinner in Estes Park, be sure to make a reservation! Colorado is a popular destination for both national and international out-of-towners.
Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
If you have never seen the Grand Canyon, this is your year and Christmas time is the perfect time to experience this natural wonder without the busyness of the summer season. Though the Northern Rim may be closed, you can still experience all that the canyon and the park have to offer at the South Rim. You can take a ride on the Grand Canyon Railway which during the holiday season turns into the Polar Express. Hate the cold? The Grand Canyon might become your favorite Christmas destination.
Corpus Christi, Texas
If cold and snowy conditions aren’t your favorite thing, Corpus Christi, Texas might just be the place for you. Corpus Christi offers a Christmas-at-the-beach experience without the normal crowd of college students. Enjoy the Harbor Lights Festival as well as other community events like the lighting of the community Christmas tree, live music, a parade, and more!
No matter where you are, as long as you have family with you and love in your heart, your Christmas holiday can happen anywhere. If you are ready to make a new family tradition or simply break the mold of how you always celebrate the holidays, it’s time to hit the open road.
