Pack your bags, clear your agenda and start getting ready for the best trip of your life. If you really want to get into the spirit of Christmas Traditions, here are the best places to do so in the US.
New York City
Obviously, the dream place to spend time around the holidays. The lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas tree alone is something you just have to see if you’re the festive type.
All the shop displays are full with Christmas colors and decorations, really embracing the spirit of the season. Some of them are truly artful and create a crowd curiously waiting to see all the details.
The Big Apple is on the must-visit list, all trimmed out for the season by taking the Christmas Walking Tour from the Rockefeller Center to Radio City Music Hall. If you really love Christmas lights, you should also take a trip out to the Brooklyn suburb of Dyker Heights, where decorating for the holidays it’s a matter of family pride.
Koziar’s Christmas Village in Bernville, began as a regular holiday decorating when William M. Koziar decided to decorate the entire house with the Christmas theme.
The tradition has grown into a town-wide celebration and passed down for three generations and is now a full-on frenzy, extending to the lake, walkways, trees and fences.
It just looks like Santa’s little village and attracts visitors from near and far, featuring scenic festive displays housed in restored chicken coops, including Christmas in Other Lands, Christmas Beneath the Sea, and Christmas in the Jungle.
Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin
Wisconsin is home to the famed Old World Christmas Market, a Christmas market resembling the Christkindlmarket in Nuremberg, Germany.
Visitors can hop on for a horse ride, have breakfast with Santa, or indulge in some traditional German schnitzel and mulled wine.
This is the place where you can spread the holiday cheer at nearby Greenbush’s Wade House Historic Site, where they host “An Old World Christmas”, a mid-19th century-style Christmas celebration filled with live holiday music, horse-drawn rides with jingle bells, and photos with a Victorian Santa Claus.
When considering Ogden for your Christmas getaway, make sure to be there during the Electric Light Parade celebration, the opening ceremony for the Ogden’s Christmas Village. Since its beginning in 1962, this village has been a prized tradition for the people of Utah.
One of the highpoints is for sure the parade after Thanksgiving, filled with elaborate floats, world-class performers, and sensational holiday themes. Santa appears in the final float of the ceremony, illuminating all of Christmas Village. The opening ceremony closes with a spectacular fireworks display.
This town situated in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, just two hours east of Seattle, is considered the top location to visit in the US for the season.
On the first day of December, this snowy mountain village transforms into the winter wonderland of your childhood dreams, that Christmas wonder you’ve always seen in movies. The streets are lighted with Christmas decorations, the town festivities include carolings, Santa visits the town gazebo, you have roasted chestnut vendors all over the place, you can sledding, and so much more.
This is that place that you really need to see because no words are good enough to describe.
