Here are seven unforgettable trips to take during your next Christmas holiday.

New Orleans

If you are looking forward to spending your Christmas holiday in a family-friendly location, New Orleans is the place to be. There are several holiday activities around like jazz-gospel concerts at the cathedral, carols, and a Christmas bonfire on the Mississippi River and you will be guaranteed a fun-filled time with your loved ones.


Spending Christmas on Lake Geneva’s bank in the beautiful country of Switzerland is one of the most amazing ways to enjoy your Christmas holiday. With the elegantly decorated city, guests can hang around the Christmas tree while sipping wine in the evening. Geneva is a winter wonderland with holiday markets, festivals, concerts, ice skating, and even parades.


Though Christmas is not celebrated in all parts of Tokyo, the locals get in the Christmas spirit with dazzling illuminations. From November, the city is decorated with sparkling trees and LED displays. The favorite LED screens are displayed in areas like Tokyo Midtown, Tokyo Dome City, and Roppongi Hills. On this get-away, you also get to admire the incandescent lights from Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo’s 38-story tower.


Step away from the norm; every year doesn’t have to be a white Christmas. This year try celebrating the festive season on a beautiful beachfront. It may not be your regular snow and earmuffs; turn it around to sun and bikinis. No rule says you can’t experience a new Christmas tradition on the beach and still make it merry! 

Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

This destination is famous for spring break and summer vacation. However, it is an ideal spot to be during the winter. Santa Rosa Beach gives you a seaside Christmas experience. You can enjoy quiet strolls on the beach savoring the environment, enjoy a variety of mouth-watering dishes, shop till you drop, or pedal on beach cruisers.

Greenough, Montana

If you want an adventure-filled Christmas, then you can never go wrong with Greenough. Just make sure you take your warm clothing along. There are several adventurous activities from ice skating, sleigh rides, and cross-country skiing that will ensure you don’t have a boring Christmas.


Everyone should experience the holidays cruising the Caribbean boarded on a catamaran. Your memorable Christmas holiday will be the one you were sipping a glass of wine while watching the sunset in the Caribbean. You can take it up a notch and stay in a serviced beach house or play tennis or golf.

This Christmas, let me plan your trip so it can be a remarkable holiday. Just give me a call!
