5 Destinations to Spend Christmas in the American Continent

It doesn’t matter where you decide to spend Christmas as there’s no better place to be in than the one where you are with the ones you love. However, if you are not averse to spending time away from your home and venturing into another part of the globe, then, you would surely love some advice on where to spend the holidays. Whether you are planning to go out with someone special or with the entire family, these are some of the best places to spend the holidays:

1. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico


Located in Central Mexico, this Spanish colonial town has much to offer especially to people who wish to experience Christmas in a new environment. Here, dancing takes place in the main city square and the nine day novena, posadas, is reenacted. Last but not the least is the seasonal Christmas treats which can only be found in the region. Staying in one of those mansions that date back from the 16th to 18th century would be lovely and be sure to reserve a spot in La Capilla, a century old chapel that serves Christmas delicacies.

2. Taos, New Mexico

Set in the northern part of New Mexico, there are so many sights to see especially Ledoux Street. The mix of cultural traditions and the majestic beauty of the place make this a prime holiday destination. The holidays here are spent based on American Indian practices. This World Heritage site is the only one which is inhabited in North America and the ancient traditions has been kept alive. Santa Claus is, in no way, involved in holidays here. Bonfires are lit after a procession from the St. Gerome church and native dances are performed on Christmas Eve. For skiing lovers, the Taos Ski Resort is just 18 miles away and the El Monte Sagrado Living Resort and Spa is nearer to the town center.

3. Key West, Florida

Everyone who is looking for a great summer destination would definitely see Key West as a great place to do so but summer season is not the only time to appreciate the place as it is also a perfect place to be for Christmas. You can spend time in basking in the warm weather while feeling the holiday cheer. Spending Christmas by the poolside has its own charm especially when you plan to stay in one of the historic hotels. Holiday dinners can be made in one of the restaurants in the area.

4. Quebec City, Canada


Snow is one of the Christmas attractions in the northern hemisphere and one of the best places to enjoy white Christmas is Quebec. This four century old town has a unique European feel about it that makes you remember castles. It would be awesome to stay in one of those old places and try the food in the French restaurants in the area.

5. New York, USA


If you are looking for colorful displays and a gorgeous holiday setting, the Big Apple is just the place to spend the Christmas season. The charming snowfall and the crisp winter air. The Central Park transforms into a winter wonderland and you can go on a carriage ride or spin in the frozen lakes in the park. You will be followed by the signs and sights that scream Christmas from Times Square to Fifth Avenue and while spending holidays here, be sure to catch the performance of the Rockettes in the Radio City Music Hall.

These are just some of America’s best holiday destinations for those who are planning to spend the season away from home. Where will you be spending your Christmas holidays?
