Holiday Travel

There's little as stressful, or as special, as holiday travel. Though travelers do have to deal with extra crowds on holidays, they also get the chance to witness something truly unique—a celebration shared across the globe, or an event cherished by a single locale. Whether you're going home for Christmas (or taking a relaxing beach vacation far away from home), Travel + Leisure knows how to navigate the best and worst of holiday travels. We can even help you nail down the perfect reservation for Valentine's Day or discover the best place in the nation to grill on the Fourth of July.
