Have you ever wanted to totally immerse yourself in Christmas? We're talking a super over-the-top professionally decorated gingerbread house, garland and ribbon-trimmed staircases, a holiday village complete with a toy train running through the town, and an exquisite tree. Well, you don't have to kill yourself with decor at home as many hotels and resorts pull out all stops to create that dream Christmas. So with no work, and just the cost of a drink at the bar (or splurge on a hotel room), you can indulge in Christmas cheer as much as your little heart desires! You can stay local with three of our options, or plan a quick day trip to visit the other three.
