If we’re talking Christmas villages, we must start with Santa Claus, Indiana. They essentially ran away with the sleigh by devoting several attractions to the holiday. There’s the Santa Claus Museum, Frosty’s Fun Center, and Santa’s Candy Castle to name a few.

The best part? The post office is literally named “Santa Claus,” and letters addressed to St. Nick himself arrive every year from all over the country. When hitting the road for the holidays, this is one place you must add to your list of stops if only to fully immerse yourself in the spirit of Christmas.

If you are looking for snow, then Estes Park, Colorado is the destination for you, and Christmas is the absolute perfect time to visit. Skiing and snowboarding are popular this time of year, but there are plenty of opportunities to shop and soak in the decorated streets.

One of the biggest attractions in this area is the Yuletide Lights, a drive-through parade featuring thousands of Christmas lights and holiday displays. Estes Park is beautiful year-round but feels like a scene inside a snow globe during the holidays. Shake up your Christmas routine and hit the road for some Rocky Mountain winter RV camping – you won’t regret it.

Located within North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is known for its art scene and historic architecture – both of which are elevated during the holiday season. Christmas vibes are spread throughout the Biltmore Estate, the largest privately-owned home in the United States.

During November and December, the estate is decorated with 1,000 live poinsettias, 7,500 feet of fresh evergreen garlands, 360 wreaths, and over 55 hand-decorated trees. If you’ve ever dreamed of an extravagant Christmas, you might have to pinch yourself because dreams do come true.

Why choose between naughty or nice when you can be nautical and nice? Cape Cod, Massachusetts doesn’t trade in its summer charm just because the holidays are here. Instead, they adapt the holidays to fit their aesthetic. Lighthouses are decorated with lights, wreaths, and garlands.

There’s the lighting of the Lobster Pot Tree where several lobster traps are stacked to resemble a Christmas tree, decorated with lights and bows, then lit up during a designated ceremony. Not to be outdone, Santa trades in his sleigh to arrive by boat. Do you want to talk about charming? Cape Cod never disappoints.

Campground Nearby:

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Often the go-to destination from spring through fall, the Grand Canyon National Park is quite the sight in the winter months as well. With cooler temperatures, fewer crowds, and less traffic, you’ll get to take in all the beauty the Grand Canyon has to offer without feeling rushed or pressured to move along.

As a bonus for the kids and the young-at-heart, the Grand Canyon Railway is temporarily transformed into the Polar Express during the month of December – it’s a must if this destination makes your list.

Since we started this list with Santa Claus, it only seems appropriate to end it with Christmas itself – Christmas, Florida that is. For those that find a white Christmas daunting, head south and soak in the holiday sun while wearing flip flops and a t-shirt.

However, the holiday isn’t ignored just because the weather is warmer. There are still Christmas trees to see, although some are decorated palm trees, and the neighboring theme parks (Disney World, Universal Studios, Legoland) host their own Christmas celebrations to enjoy.
