If you ask us, travel is always magical. But there is something about traveling during Christmastime that takes that magic to another level.
Over the years we have consulted with some of the most seasoned travel bloggers to compile a list of some of the best Christmas travel destinations around the world.
But no matter where you decide to spend your holiday season, we at Arch RoamRight would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
United States Christmas Towns
The Top Christmas Towns in America: “Almost every town in America brings out the decorations for Christmas. However, some towns go the extra mile when it comes to Christmas celebrations. They are quaint, beautiful, and look like a real-life Christmas card.”
Eight Festive Destinations in America: “Although it is well-known that Christmas is celebrated differently throughout the world, it might surprise you to learn that every state in America also has its own way of welcoming the season.”
Best Christmas Markets in America: “Bright lights, the smell of spices, and the sound of Christmas carols are just a few things I love about visiting Christmas markets. There is something special about people gathering together and fighting the chill in the air to celebrate their love of the holiday season. Christmas markets can turn even the biggest Scrooge into a playful kid again.”
Family Friendly Holiday Festivals to Catch Across the US: “Nothing gets families into the holiday spirit like a great festival; some twinkly lights, roller coasters, and St. Nick. Don’t just sit at home this year. Grab the kids, and get out to towns across the country that are doing things a little different than your average, run of the mill parties to ring in the season.”
Christmas in Europe
Tips for Enjoying a Festive Christmas in Italy: “Italy during Christmastime is particularly special; not only do you miss out on most of the high-season crowds, but you get to experience the special atmosphere and traditions of one of the most Catholic countries on Earth.”
The Best Christmas Markets in England: “Many towns have a Christmas market running for just a few days, with some of the best short-lived markets including Harrogate, Portsmouth, Caerphilly and Lincoln. But where are the best places to get into the Christmas spirit if your dates don’t coincide with one of the smaller markets?”
The Best of Paris at Christmas: “Of all the places to visit during the Christmas season, there are a few icons: New York for shopping and Rockefeller Center; Finland for Santa's village; the Caribbean for the anti-White Christmas. But what about somewhere a bit more elegant, a bit more cosmopolitan, a bit more romantic?”
The Best Christmas Markets in Germany: “When most travelers think about winter in Europe, invariably images of snow-covered Christmas Markets come to mind, and Germany is one of the best countries to experience the traditional European market atmosphere.”
A Merry Little Christmas in Asia
Christmastime at the Tokyo Disney Resort: “In addition to the seasonal Christmas parade, there are several holiday overlays on popular attractions. You won’t want to miss Haunted Mansion Holiday at the Haunted Mansion attraction, which mimics the popular one at Disneyland in California.”
Experiencing The Best of Hong Kong at Christmastime: “December is a great time to explore Hong Kong, when the city is festive and themed for the upcoming Christmas holiday. Visitors will find winter decorations in various parts of the city, a seasonal themed nightly laser light show, special events at theme parks, and new menus at many hotels.”
