Best Christmas Vacations for Families (inspired by Clark Griswold)
At Forever Resorts, we know the importance of creating new and lasting memories with loved ones. From where to find the ultimate twinkling light show to cruising along snow-blanketed fields, we’ve rounded up our favorite Christmas vacations for families, inspired by the one and only Clark Griswold.
We just love Christmas. Family comes into town, houses are doused in Christmas lights and decor, bonus checks are distributed (HA!), and holiday cheer fills the air. Where else can you experience this magical feeling when you’re away from home? In Branson, Missouri, of course! When you visit America’s Christmas Tree City, you’ll be able to hop aboard the Polar Express, attend a live show, watch the annual parade, drive around and look at Christmas lights, and so much more.
Kids, get in the car. We’re going to Wally World, er, Disney World! Sometimes the best Christmas vacations aren’t spent near the snow at all. Sure, there may be long wait times as everyone flocks to the park over winter break, but it’ll be worth it, right? Just imagine all the holiday decorations and...and...the fireworks! It’s going to be spectacular.
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Wow! The mountains. The scenery. Take in a breath of that fresh air why don’t ya, kids? Oh! Look at all those furry critters running around the blankets of snow. There’s so much to do here. Who’s up for snowmobiling? Or how about a warm snowcoach ride? Don’t forget the hot chocolate. A stay at Signal Mountain Lodge sounds just perfect this time of year.
Millions of twinkling lights, live street performances, carolers, ice sculptures, shopping, ice skating….the list can go on for days! Dubbed the “Christmas Capital of Texas,” Grapevine is one of the best places for all things Christmas. Families can enjoy tons of holiday events that rivals a trip to the North Pole--minus the snow. And if you’re a Dallas TV Show fan, a tour of Southfork Ranch is under an hour away.
