Top 4 Child-Friendly Christmas Vacation Ideas

Christmas is a few months away, but it doesn’t hurt to start making plans now. The more organized you are, the easier it will be to keep the kids entertained and under control for the holiday season, and as any mom knows, if the kids aren’t happy, nobody is.

One way to make Christmas extra special is to book a Christmas vacation. Sure, it can be expensive to travel over the festive holidays, but if you want to make this Christmas extra special for the whole family, it’s a wonderful idea. The only fly in the ointment is choosing a child-friendly vacation. Some destinations, like New York, for example, might be an adult’s dream Christmas break, but if you have young children in tow, a city break isn’t going to wash. Not to worry, though, as we have some great ideas for Christmas vacations your kids are going to adore.

Take a Snow Vacation

Christmas and snow go together like peanut butter and jelly. This year, why not book a ski break in one of the top ski resorts in North America. You have some wonderful destinations to choose from, including Whistler in British Colombia, Winter Park in Colorado, which is very family-friendly, and Snowmass, which is also in Colorado. Splash out on luxury accommodation for the whole family, such as the gorgeous condos available from Check whether the resort offers childcare and nursery slopes. If it does, you are good to go.

Disney at Christmas

Kids of all ages love Disney. A trip to Walt Disney World in Florida is any child’s idea of a dream vacation, at any time of the year, but at Christmas, Walt Disney World really comes to life. Imagine the joy on your children’s faces if they found out they were spending the Christmas vacation in a Disney Resort hotel. They would be in seventh heaven! It’s not too shabby for adults, too, with warm Florida sunshine and plenty of adult-friendly rides and activities to enjoy. Of course, you could just put your feet up and relax, but with so much to see and do, that would be a shame.

A Christmas Chocolate Extravaganza

Kids love chocolate, so they are sure to appreciate a festive break in the Hotel Hershey in Pennsylvania. Take a trip down Christmas Candylane and admire the two million (yes, you did read that correctly) LED lights. Next, cruise through the Sweet Lights attraction and have lunch with Santa. Just watch your waistline, as a few days in this hotel is sheer bliss for chocoholics!

The Resort at Paws Up

Christmas in Montana is pretty special if you visit the Resort at Paws Up in Greenough. This is a working cattle ranch, but you can stay in a private, luxury lodge, and enjoy a snowy sleigh ride, personal visit from Santa, and some delicious food. They even provide a hand-decorated Christmas tree!

Now that we have inspired you, it is time to start planning your best Christmas vacation ever.
