This crazy year – 2020 has been anything but traditional, wouldn’t you agree?  If you’re like me, you may need a little extra holiday spirit.

Here are my top 5 destinations to get you into the holiday spirit.

Las Vegas, NV

The Bellagio Fountains set to Christmas music, The Bellagio Conservatory turns into a Christmas wonderland, and holiday lights adorn the Linq promenade to set the stage for a wonderful celebration.   Now, that’s holiday spirit!  There are holiday shows, special dining events, the magical forest, and the temperature is typically in the 70s.

Nashville, TN

The Gaylord Hotel Opryland has an amazing celebration to bring out the holiday spirit even in scrooge.  They host events such as snow tubing, Christmas movie displays, gingerbread decorating, ice skating, carriage rides, ice bumper cars, reindeer encounters, and lots and lots of lights!  All the things you love and scream holiday spirit.

You’ll love this is a wonderful city to experience the holiday season.  Silver Dollar City with over shines 6 million lights! Enjoy the city’s Christmas tree tour with over 100 decorated trees, Christmas parades, snow tubing, the Polar Express train, and lots of Christmas shows.

Leavenworth, WA

An old fashioned Bavarian town year-round and turned into a winter wonderland for the holiday season.  Snow, sleigh rides, tree lighting & caroling each night, snow tubing & skiing, holiday lights and music, and wonderful holiday treats. O Levenworth brings out those old-time feelings and holiday spirit

Pigeon Forge, TN
