The holiday season is coming, maybe you are thinking it would be fun to take your family on a holiday getaway. If you have had that thought, but are not sure where to go, here are some ideas for holiday getaways for the whole family right here in the U.S.:

– New York City, New York:
NYC is magical any time of year. But, the city really comes to life. There’s ice skating in parks around the city, the famous tree at Rockefeller Center, the Rockette’s Christmas show, and the department stores showcase over the top window displays.

– Leavenworth, Washington:
If you can’t afford to take your family to Europe for the holidays, then Leavenworth is your next best option. This Bavarian town is about two hours outside of Seattle. Your family will feel like they have stepped inside a snow globe. The Village of Lights sparkles with more than 500,000 lights from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day.

– Disney:
Whether you choose to go to Disney World in Florida or Disneyland in California, it’s a magical experience during the Christmas season. With each park spectacularly decorated, there’s a surprise waiting for you around every corner.

– Jackson Hole, Wyoming
If skiing and outdoor snowy adventures is your thing, then head to Jackson Hole for your holiday season! You are pretty much guaranteed a white Christmas as they get an average of 400 inches of snow per year! The ski slopes are even open on Christmas Day, the town itself is fully decorated for the holiday, and you have plenty of opportunities for drinking hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows over an open fire.
