I have not done a lot of traveling. These are definitely places I’d love to visit. What about you?
his holiday season, thousands will be on the move within the United States, visiting family or just taking some time off. BluePromoCode has done some serious thinking and we’ve come up with our picks for the 5 best cities to visit over the holidays. If you don’t have family obligations, try taking your vacation days at one of these cities. If you ARE visiting family, well, we hope they live in one of these places!
Here are our top 5 US cities for holiday travel 2013.
1. New York City, NY
New York City is consistently at the top of holiday travel wishlists. For the 2013 holiday season, don’t expect this to be any different! New York City has one of the best New Year’s celebrations in the country and don’t even get us started on all the sights and other attractions. If you end up going to New York City and have time (and energy) between all the debauchery, try a sightseeing tour with Gray Line New York, the premier touring company in the Big Apple.
2. Denver, CO
This holiday season, why not go somewhere known for having snow? Grab the skis, the boards and the snow boots and head to Denver, CO for the 2013 holidays. The Rocky Mountains are visible right from downtown, so you already know getting up there during your vacation for some powdery slopes will be no problem!
3. Austin, TX
“Keep Austin weird!” That’s the mantra of the citizens of Austin, one of America’s most rapidly growing cities and a burgeoning hub for technology. Besides having a promising future in the tech industry, Austin is a beautiful city for it’s vibrant culture, music scene and so much amazing food. Austin is by no means a noted holiday vacation spot (there’s no snow or beach), but the city is so “weird” and awesome that if you’ve never been, the 2013 holiday season is the perfect time to go. For a place to stay, try HomeAway, a rental company that connects you with local homeowners looking to rent out their place for a brief time.
4. Miami, FL
I don’t think we need to explain why Miami, FL is a favorite spot for the holiday season. Miami is a hub for pretty people, prettier beaches and an incredible nightlife scene. For younger travelers eager to make the most of the holiday season, Miami, FL is a great choice! Between all the beaching and clubbing, see a little bit of the city with Smart Destinations. Their Go Cards allow you to pick and choose the sights that you actually want to check out.
5. Lake Tahoe, CA Another location on our list for skiing and snowboarding, Lake Tahoe is always a favorite during the holidays. Set right between California and Nevada, the options of how you can spend your vacation there are limitless. Stick up in the mountains for the fresh powder and fun sporting or take the short drive to Reno, the Biggest Little City in the World, and try your luck at the slots!
