The following is an article “The Best Winter Wonderland for Families this Christmas” by Marc Pulisci.

Whether you are in for some great skiing or light displays this Christmas, there is also a perfect destination where you and your family can celebrate the holidays in high Yuletide spirits and more.

Best winter vacations for families

Around the world, there are at least 160 countries where people hold Christmas festivities. With these revelries come great family offerings and wonderful treats that will only lead you back for more. If you have yet to make your holiday plans this December, here are a few ideas you might want to check out for an unforgettable Christmas family trip.

New York

We’ve all seen New York at Christmastime in movies and it never fails to amaze us how every corner seems to come alive with eye-catching decor and dazzling lights. Some say you have never really experienced Christmas if you’ve never tried skating at Bryant Park or Central Park, or sang a carol or two while gazing at the giant Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Christmas shopping won’t be a problem if you haven’t done it yet, with plenty of department stores offering huge sales. If you’re also planning to spend the holidays in New York next year, book a little earlier and don’t miss out on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and stay a while longer for the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square.

Branson, Missouri

Every year, the Ozark Mountains in this peaceful town liven up the Christmas spirits of hundreds of families with performances, Christmas carolings, and light shows. The little ones will surely be in awe of the giant Christmas tree trail that light up the streets of Branson. Deep in the Ozarks is Silver Dollar City where they celebrate annual Yuletide festivals that feature special effects and mind-blowing visuals for one of the most magical Christmas displays in the entire U.S.A. The city also offers great gift ideas, including handcrafted products and one-of-a-kind mementos made of blown glass and pottery for you to bring back to your loved-ones at home.

Leavenworth, Washington

If you are already in the U.S.A. and can’t make it to Europe for Christmas, perhaps spending the season with your family in Leavenworth can give you a taste of Germany during the holidays. There, a Bavarian-themed Christmas will welcome you as the Village of Lights shines with over half a million bulbs twinkling during nighttime. Celebrate by strolling along the Christmas Market and joining festivities that stretch until January in this real-life snow globe attraction.

Lake Louise, Canada

At the heart of the Canadian Rockies lies this winter wonderland that offers a number of family activities everyone can enjoy. From skating on a frozen lake to sleigh rides, to bonfire gatherings, Christmas at Lake Louise is the perfect spot for those who love fun-filled Yuletide activities in the daytime and quiet evenings with the family. You can also check out the Ice Bar where they serve wine, hot chocolate, and other sugary delights.

Copenhagen, Denmark

If you are looking for holiday markets that are experiential and worth your money, Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens is the place for you. The sights are amazing here during the holidays and Christmas cheers are not lost on everyone and everywhere, with fancy decorations and light shows, holiday F&B treats, and fun rides for the children and Santa himself. Marvel at the snow-covered trees and wooden houses that will surely get you into the Christmas spirit. For that great European Nordic holiday, Copenhagen’s annual tradition is always alive from mid-November all the way to the whole of December for all to enjoy.
