The Top 10 Places to Go for Christmas
Large double digit holiday bookings are reported for the top places to go to at Christmas. The Wall Street Journal reports that even with the boom in holiday travel across the United States, Orlando ranks very high on this list.
Orlando is a great place to go due to excellent weather and many area events. Central Florida is only surpassed by New York as the top travel destination for the holidays for domestic travelers. Additional Florida destination cities Miami and Fort Lauderdale are included in the Top 10, but are much further down the list. Click here for the full WSJ article.
The good news for Orlando Florida is the fact that bookings are up 26% from 2011.
Other cities in the Top 10 include Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Honolulu and Cancun. Interestingly, Cancun has seen a large increase in travel volume for the holidays because the Mayan calendar ends on December 21st. To celebrate this occasion, special festivities are planned for the city.
The impact of this boom reinforces the need to book early for the holidays according to the WSJ. Last min travel deals are also harder to find, but they can be found if one does their research. Orlando has a plethora of great holiday events which places it in the sweet spot of Christmas domestic travel destinations. All Walt Disney and Universal parks have special celebrations for both Christmas and New Year’s.
