Family Christmas in the French Alps Family Christmas in the French Alps

Even if you’ve never skied or snowboarded and never want to the French Alps are a beautiful winter wonderland and there’s plenty to do here. For children the French Alps are probably the ultimate winter paradise with snow, mountains, sledding, skiing and snowboarding to keep them entertained all day long. You can spend your time skiing, hiking or just relaxing in these beautiful mountains.

While all of the Alps are exceptionally beautiful, France has some of the best ski schools and a fantastic infrastructure in terms of slopes and family care. This means you can relax or spend your time on the slopes without having to worry and you’ll have an incredible Christmas as well!

Family Christmas in New York Family Christmas in New York

New York is one of the most popular Christmas destinations in the world and with good reason. No city on earth puts as much effort into Christmas as New York and it really shows. The climate means that you can almost guarantee the city will be blanketed in snow and every shop, group and person seems to really get behind the Christmas spirit.

There’s the gigantic tree and ice skating in the Rockefeller Plaza, ice skating in Central Park, the incredible window displays and toy stores such as FAO Schwartz, Macy’s Santaland and the best Christmas lights in the world. If that wasn’t enough you also have everything New York can offer from the Statue of Liberty and Time Square to the shows of Broadway and the Skyscrapers. Christmas in New York is a fantastic family experience and will give you and your family fantastic memories!

Family Christmas in Florida Family Christmas in Florida

Florida has so many great reasons to be high on your list of potential family Christmas holiday destinations. The weather is beautiful at this time of year and it isn’t too humid, there are beautiful beaches and cities along the coast, the scenery is spectacular with the Everglades national park being a highlight and the sea life around the coast offers an incredible opportunity to see Whales, Dolphins and beautiful wildlife.

If that wasn’t enough for a family Christmas there are also the theme parks and for most families this is ultimately the biggest draw. Disney is the highlight and they really go all out for Christmas with parades and events daily. The other parks will keep your older children amused for days on end and if you stay outside of the parks themselves you can save money and enjoy the rest of beautiful Florida!
