Traveling This Holiday Season

by : Bill Gould

Travelling during the Holiday Season is a popular way to spend the holidays. There are many destinations in North America to choose from.

During the holiday there are many people who want to travel away to somewhere different. One popular destination is New York City. In New York, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is what typically kicks of the city into holiday mode. This is followed by various activities you can do such as catching a Broadway show, skate at Rockefeller center, watch the lighting of the Christmas tree, or just absorb the snow lined trees at Central Park or the carolers in the streets.

For those who prefer something more active, there is the ski resorts in the Colorado mountains such as Aspen Mountain, Beaver Creek, Breck, Copper Mountain, and Vail. Of course those in California may wish to stay closer to home in Lake Tahoe or someplace similar. Those wanting something different might want to try going up to Whistler, BC Canada where the mountain has been named one of the top ski destinations in North America for many years. Of course, this future Olympic city will be hosting the 2010 Olympics and it has many quaint shops and sights to see.

Las Vegas is another place where you can enjoy the glitz and glamour over the holidays. Many hotels offer great meals and room rates over the holiday season too. Someplace even hotter would be Hawaii, a favourite among American holiday travellers.

Of course there are other great destinations such as San Francisco, Walt Disney World, Napa Valley, etc. So this holiday season you should considering packing your luggage and getting out and see other parts of the country.
