Santa Knows If You’re Home … or on a Christmas Holiday


Take Advantage This Season for a Family Vacation to Eureka Springs or Sunny Key West, Florida

It’s the most wonderful time of the year … until you realize everything you have to do. Decorate, party planning, shopping, wrapping, getting the house ready for guests. It’s enough to make you run for the hills – and that’s just what you should do.

According to Destination 360, Christmas vacation ideas are one of the best ways to get creative and take advantage of the holiday season or the kids’ break from school. The week between Christmas and New Years has steadily been a popular week for vacations. The best places to go for Christmas are highly subjective depending on the individual traveler. While the destination may vary, there are certain amenities that most people will have in common this time of year. During a holiday, many travelers prefer vacation rentals over a hotel, and Christmas vacations are different from any other type of vacation, because most families will want to spend significant quality time together in the comfort of a vacation home or condo rental. You will be doing less sightseeing, dining out and activities than during other types of trips so be sure that your accommodation is comfortable and offers plenty of living space. A kitchen, fireplace, whirlpool bath and other amenities can also help to create the best places to go for Christmas.
