Winter travel to Las Vegas includes checking out Sin City during Christmas
My picks for the Top
5 winter vacation deals include great cost-effective trips that the whole family can enjoy:
to Las Vegas: Sin City offers entertainment
for the whole clan. Many hotels have
animal exhibits and roller coasters. Siegfried
& Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage allows kids to view
white lions, white tigers, panthers, leopards, and Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins. Shows, dining, incredible pools and hotel
babysitters all make Vegas a great option for winter break.
Colorado: Flying into Denver and
driving to some of Colorado’s best spots for white powder skiing is a great family
getaway. We’ve hit the slopes of Aspen,
Snowmass and Beaver Creek. All of these
destinations have ski schools for the kids and are great places for beginners –
or advanced – skiers.
to Los Angeles: Cheap flights to
Los Angeles let visitors live like movie stars. Stroll on the Santa Monica Pier, drive to Disneyland, enjoy beaches,
museums and Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. We
love packing picnics and hiking in Malibu or Topanga Canyon. Another
free activity for kids is the
boardwalk on Venice Beach, where street performers entertain for hours.
Enjoying a Hollywood holiday
Vacation Packages: Many airlines offer vacation packages that
combine airfare and hotels at better rates. Be sure to check out these deals when booking
your trip to save both time and money.
Cruises: If you hurry, you can find great deals on
cruises. What I love about family
cruising is that don’t have to constantly pull out your wallet to feed your
hungry family. Snacks and water bottles on vacations can add
up to big expenditures. All-inclusive
cruises that seem like a splurge actually end up saving you big bucks in the
long run – especially if you travel with large families or groups.
