When you picture yourself escaping to an all-inclusive resort, you likely imagine flying to Cancun, Jamaica, or maybe even the Maldives. And, of course, retreating to a far-flung destination where the swim-up bar drinks are included and your daily itinerary is created for you is pretty delightful. But here's the thing: you can find all of those perks right here in the U.S. — perhaps even within driving distance of your home. When you take an all-inclusive vacation, meals, many activities, and accommodations are included, and the advertised rates often extend to alcoholic beverages. While private sessions like spa treatments are rarely included, it's easier to factor in extras because you know exactly how much you're spending up front. With that in mind, here are 14 of the best all-inclusive resorts in the U.S.

Whether you live in Texas, Oregon, or North Pole, Alaska, it just wouldn't be Christmastime without twinkling lights. Bulbs blinking red and green or classic white have become a part of our identity, a symbol of prosperity, holiday cheer, and end-of-the-year celebration.   Christmas lights actually have a history that dates all the way back to the pagan rituals of northern Europe. The custom of the Yule Log, a bonfire of sorts, was first recorded in the 12th century, and is thought to have served as a representation of hope that the sun would once again shine brightly, ending the darkness of December. The winter light traditions have come a long way since the 12th century, from early Yule Logs to candles on the German Christmas tree — perhaps the most flammable Christmas light iteration — to the LED displays we have today.   While travelers fly halfway around the world to see the European Christmas lights illuminating holiday markets, we have some exquisite displays right here in the U.S. Whether you prefer a sophisticated tea light-lined spectacle or a drive-through LED extravaganza, here are the best Christmas lights in every state.  Related: More holiday travel
