It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas... and that means it's the perfect time to start planning a Christmas vacation. If you're pondering where to celebrate your holidays, you should take a look at a stay here in southern Vermont.
What makes Vermont the perfect place for a Christmas vacation? There's no way we could list everything, but we'll give you the short list:
Perfect Christmas Weather - If you've been dreaming of a white Christmas, we've got you covered. Vermont is known for its winter snows and chilly nights - giving you an ideal excuse to curl up by the fireplace or relax in comfy pajamas.
Authentic Christmas Trees - Vermont's tall, stately pines make for beautiful forests, and they also make ideal Christmas trees. You can find many local tree farms that will be happy to provide you with a sustainably-grown tree. Most have several varieties available, including Douglas and Frasier Firs and the iconic Blue Spruce.
An Awesome Christmas Dinner - We talked recently about how you can create a delicious Vermont-inspired Thanksgiving dinner from locally-sourced foods. Well, almost all of these farms and markets are open all season long, which means that you can still get in on the turkey, apple pie and locally grown dishes if you missed it in November.
Plenty of Presents - If you're like us, you're likely to have lots of Christmas shopping to do right up until the holiday itself. But if you swing by one of the region's many shopping outlets and local shops, you'll find gifts for the whole family at prices that won't give you any New Year's blues.
Post-Christmas Fun - Once the big day is over, the good times go on. There are tons of things to do in southern Vermont, including skiing at the famous Mount Snow, just a few minutes away from Wilmington. Many Vermont ski resorts are open on Christmas Day as well, a perfect way to get out and enjoy that White Christmas.
This is only the beginning of what makes Christmas in Vermont such a great way to spend the holiday. You can even make it extra-comfortable by staying in one of our deluxe southern Vermont rental properties. All you have to do is bring your family and friends, along with a sense of adventure and fun, and we know you'll have the best Christmas ever.
