It’s cold outside and, we will admit it, our first instinct is to stay cooped up in the warm comfort of our houses. But no, the holiday season can’t just pass us by because we are scared to open the door and find out what the world has to offer besides the frigid temperatures. Our luxury bus service in Long Island has therefore decided to come up with a list of some of the best places to visit during the winter season and we hope they go a long way in adding some life into this seemingly gloomy season.
Before we get into it, we would like to recommend employing the services of a concierge car service for your ground transportation needs this winter. A reputable car services like our Long Island ground transportation service will not only alleviate the hassle of driving and navigating heavy holiday traffic but will enable you to fully enjoy the company of your friends and family in a luxury vehicle with the comfort of knowing that you are in safe hands. A professionally trained and experienced chauffeur will be behind the wheel ready to transfer you safely and promptly to any destination of your choice no matter the traffic, distance, or condition of roads.
Here are a few destinations you can consider exploring this season.
Just south of the union’s border, Mexico is the perfect destination for a December getaway. Here, you will find warm Pacific beaches where you can enjoy swimming/scuba diving and amazing landscapes that are always tropical green at this time of year. Head over to Mexico City for its architectural wonders and bustling food scene. Note, however, this is a deeply religious country and the Christmas period is taken quite seriously so avoid visiting on the Christmas Day, or any other religious holiday for that matter, when most establishments are likely to closed.
Not a lot of people travel abroad between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. In this time, most people are settled in somewhere with their families, and you know what that means. It’s the perfect time to travel and take advantage of the off peak-season rates. Head over to the Caribbean and enjoy massive discounts, upgrades, and a chance to enjoy the Caribbean and its islands, uninterrupted by masses of tourists typical to the islands.
This is Greece’s second-largest city and it is a fascinating combination of Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Jewish, and Ottoman heritage. During the holidays, the streets of Thessaloniki come alive with colorful lights and festive decorations. Here you will get to split your time between luxury hotels, holiday shopping, sightseeing, cozy cafes, and hot beverages.
Located in Alberta, Canada, Banff is a mountainous landscape that is popular throughout the year. During winter, however, this humble township offers exceptional opportunities besides its picturesque snowy views. You will get to enjoy activities such as mountain climbing, cycling, skiing, and much more.
