No one wants to travel during the holidays. Even outside of Europe, getting from point A to B can quickly turn nightmarish. How about this: Stay home until the Christmas surge has safely passed, then head against the traffic for a New Year's weekend. While your patdown- and scanner-weary pals are coming home, you'll enjoy shorter lines getting out of town.

Forget that Big Tree; How about a Lifesize Gingerbread House?

Ritz-Carlton Charlotte Gingerbread House

While the tree at New York City’s Rockefeller Center typically gets top billing when it comes to conspicuous displays of holiday cheer, the lobby at the Ritz-Carlton Charlotte, North Carolina has something else entirely: a 1500-pound, 140 square-foot gingerbread house, complete with flickering lights (and real moss!). Baked in-house by executive chef Jon Farace and the staff at the BLT Steak restaurant, the 100% organic display hopes to bring some warmth and attention to this LEED-certified luxury hotel—the first of the Ritz-Carlton brand.

'Stomach-Churning' Sanitary Conditions at Top Australian Hotels

A secret forensic survey revealed some five-star hotels in Melbourne, Australia have a serious hygiene problem.

Armed with swab tests and a black light, former police forensic investigator Peter Guerin scrutinized seven of Melbourne's top hotels. What he found was nauseating: mold in bathrooms, urine stained toilets, human body matter in beds, and even strains of dangerous bacteria such as E coli.

None of the hotels passed inspection. In every hotel tested, Guerin found an "unacceptable level" of potentially health-threatening microbes.

Vacationist: Northern California for the family, plus Athens, and sexy Cabo San Lucas

Carmel Valley Ranch

This holiday season, 42 million people are expected to hit the road—probably on their way to a dinner table that won't fit the whole crew. T+L asks: Why not convince everyone to head to Carmel Valley Ranch, on 450 acres in Northern California? There’s a rope swing for the kids, a rustic-chic spa for the adults, and a restaurant overseen by chef Tim Wood. No one need slave away in the kitchen. With this week’s Vacationist sale, you can stay for less than $210 a night—even on Christmas Eve.

If you’d rather escape the States altogether, try The Margi, in Athens, for $125 a night, or the Haciendas Beach Club and Residences in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for 20% off. The deals are live now at Vacationist.com.
