I often write that you don’t need to go far to “get away”. My hometown of Annapolis is featured in Travel & Leisure’s “America’s Best Towns for the Holidays” – very cool. I couldn’t agree more. The article mentions many holiday events such as midnight madness and the Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade – but they also forgot the Annapolis Towne Center Tree lighting (childrens’ chorales singing and an appearance by Santa Clause); the holiday market (First Sunday on West Street) and the Santa Speedo Run; to name a few. If you’re looking for a great holiday weekend getaway – look no further than the quaint capital of Maryland.
There are also some other great places to consider for your holiday getaway – including Portsmouth, NH, Myrtle Beach and several ski resort towns that will offer that white Christmas kids dream of. It’s no surprise that number one on the list is Vail, Colorado with it’s picturesque, quaint charm and luxurious vibe all wrapped into one perfect gift.
One of my favorite towns for the holidays is New Hope, PA. They have tons of quaint little shops, some great restaurants and beautiful bed and breakfasts tucked along the Delaware River. You can even watch a reenactment of George Washington crossing the Delaware River on Christmas Day!
So what are you waiting for? Get out this holiday season for an unforgettable holiday weekend.
