What is a popular destination during the holiday season?
"I am an Aussie specialist," says Vicki Burton of CI Travel in Virginia Beach, VA, "and since their seasons are opposite ours, the holidays fall during Australia's summer. This is a very popular destination because it's safe, beautiful, has wonderful wildlife, and you can celebrate the New Year before anyone else in the world!"
"In addition to the usual favorites—ski destinations, New York City and Walt Disney World—we've seen a lot of interest in Las Vegas and the Caribbean," says Cheryl Floyd of All Seasons Travel in Birmingham, AL. "All-inclusive resorts appeal to couples wanting to get away for a long weekend as well as families looking for that 'something different' for their annual holiday gathering."
"For folks on the East Coast, all points in Florida are the easiest and most convenient," says Randy Maged of Ask the Travel Maven LLC in Potomac, MD. In the Caribbean, "St. Barts is also a number one pick, and Isle de France is the most popular property on the island. My personal favorite is Aspen, Colorado, at the Little Nell! Nowhere on earth could you find a more holiday-inspired and festive sojourn."
