Christmas is coming and everybody is getting into the holiday spirit. With vacations getting planned, couples and families are looking for the best places to go.

The most popular location is New York, New York with a 100-foot decorated Christmas tree located at Rockefeller Center and Radio City Christmas Spectacular held in Radio City Music Hall, where the Rockets perform.

Walt Disney World in Florida is a great place to celebrate the spirit of Christmas with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party and Frozen at Disney’s Hollywood Theaters. Go to the Magic Kingdom and take a trip on the Jingle Cruise. If you have a love and passion for twinkling, spinning and blinking lights visit Hollywood Studios and witness the magic of the Osborn Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. This is a strip on a replica of  “Hollywood Bolívar” where there is a 70-foot tall Christmas tree with 80,000 lights in colored layers, a canopy of 30,000 red lights two rotating carousels of lights, an illuminated globe with Little Rock Arkansas and Bethlehem marked, hidden Mickey’s found all throughout the lights and a secret Halloween black cat for the crowd to find. Take a tour of all the unique Christmas trees found in various resorts.

San Antonio has over 6 million lights on the River Walk. On the campus of the University of Incarnate World there are nearly 1 million lights, and there is river parade with thousands of lights that illuminate the River Walk with decorated floats.

If you are looking for a White Christmas, Chicago is the place to go. Although New York has snow as well, Chicago is known for being the Windy City. Chicago has many big city activities such as viewing the millions of lights on the Magnificent Mile, as well as trying the German heritage with the German market filled with holiday crafts, traditional wooden toys, and German foods and drinks. They also have a giant Christmas tree like the one in New York that is held in Daley Plaza.

The next time you are debating to go for the Christmas season, I suggest Walt Disney World for the family atmosphere but for a scenic alternative, the bright lights of the River Walk in San Antonio would be the way to go.
