If you’re looking for a place for a good cup of hot cocoa and a warm fire to snuggle up to your sweetheart this holiday season, you’re in luck.
While many people opt to spend the holidays with family, lots of couples choose to use their hard-earned vacation time to step out into the world and go on a winter adventure for two. And, it turns out, winter can be one of the best times to travel. For many destinations around the world, winter is the so-called “off season,” where couples can take advantage of lower hotel prices and fewer crowds.
For example, if you take a trip to Hawaii with your sweetie between November and January, you might be able to score airfares and an amazing hotel room for way less money. Plus, not only does this help you escape the winter weather, you’ll also get to enjoy fewer tourists.
Of course, many couples also want to take advantage of the holiday season by visiting a place that really gets into the spirit. Visiting cities with huge holiday markets, incredible ice skating rinks, or just quaint, beautiful architecture that’s straight out of a Christmas village is also an exciting way to celebrate the season and spend some quality time with each other.
And if you do choose a colder destination, you can take part in tons of seasonal fun like skiing, holiday shopping, reindeer rides, cheerful holiday trains or just walking in the freshly driven snow with the one you love.
On the beach or on a mountain, you and your significant other can find a getaway during the holidays all over the globe to make the season a little brighter—and way more romantic.
Take a look at this list of destinations that will make your holidays all the merrier.
