Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite, CA

13 of 14

The setting calls to mind a holiday greeting card: rugged mountains, majestic cedars, and the very real possibility of snow. For one-of-a-kind seasonal magic, reserve a seat at the Bracebridge Dinner: a formal seven-course meal and interactive show that’s celebrating its 86th season in 2012. More than 60 elaborately costumed, professional singers and performers enact a scripted 17th-century-style English banquet at which you’re the honored guests. Additional activities in the hotel’s Great Lounge include caroling and a Christmas Eve reading of The Nutcracker Suite.

Details: Bracebridge Dinner two-night package starts at $1,424 including the dinner and show, a professional group portrait sitting, and accommodations; dinner-only tickets are available for $299 (adults) and $230 (children 12 and under); room rates from $395 per night.
