Not everyone is meeting up with their nearest and dearest over the holiday season. In fact, some take the opportunity to leave home – jetting off somewhere warm (preferably where they serve cocktails with the little umbrellas) or just doing something out of the ordinary.
Either way, we’ve compiled a nice little list of escape destinations to which you and your long distance loved ones can escape.
For couples: Dominican Republic
One of the most popular destinations, DR is a (relatively) short flight away, and a perfect place to relax on the beach, check out the swim-up bar, learn how to sail a boat and forget about all the snow that’s piling up on your driveway right … about … now.
For family fun: Orlando, Florida
Disney World, Sea World, hot air balloon rides … Orlando has something for everyone. The kids will never get bored and you’ll even find yourself getting into the Disney spirit. With smiles, delight and fireworks around every corner, you don’t stand a chance. Not to mention, after your kids meet Mickey Mouse, you’ ll certainly get the parent of the year award!
With your friends: Montreal, Quebec
Montreal is as renown for its poutine as it is for its shopping, and the great news is you and your friends don’t even have to leave the continent for a taste of Europe. With its fantastic restaurants, hip boutique hotels and the beautiful historic buildings of old Montreal, you will never want to leave!
Grandparents getaway: Celebrity Cruises
Everywhere from Alaska to the Eastern Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises is rated the #1 cruise ship, and with good reason. With delicious food (you can’t go wrong with their 4 egg omelets) great shows and access to the best tropical ports of call, you’ll sail away this holiday season and get the best of both land and sea.
