The Breaker’s Palm Beach decks their immaculate halls to the fullest during the Holidays.
Even though it is still the beginning of November, walk into any mall, department store, or even your local Target and it is already “beginning to look a lot like Christmas every where you go”. Not that I’m complaining though. I love everything about the holidays. From wrapping presents to baking cookies to traveling to see my friends and family. For me, the time between Thanksgiving and New Years truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
For those who, like me, are working out their holiday travel plans, here are three resorts around the country who have outstanding holiday events and packages. Not going to these areas? No problem! Let this guide help you see what’s out there so you can find some place similar in your vicinity. Whether you want to save, spend, or splurge, I’ve got you covered.
