Plan your Holiday Travel – Book Early!

August 13, 2019 by Rachelle

Here at Utopian we can’t help but look forward to the nostalgia, tradition, and bustle that comes with holiday travel during the winter months. August is the time of year when holiday bookings begin to pour in, so it is no wonder that we are thinking yuletide cheer, family gatherings, and New Year’s count downs amid the dog days of summer. To make sure that you don’t miss out this December, we have compiled a holiday list to help guide you. Here are three of our favorite locations to enjoy on your next holiday vacation, the best things to do, and where to stay.

Park City

#1 Spend Your Holidays in Park City

In December and January, Historic Main Street in Park City transforms into a winter wonderland. With the bustle of the ski crowds, small-town charm, and an endless line up of holiday festivities, Park City is an idyllic holiday and New Year’s locale for everyone in the family to enjoy. Admittedly, we may be a little biased. But, there must be a reason why so many Utah locals and tourists alike flock to this winter mecca every holiday season.

#2 Escape the Cold and Spend Christmas, or New Year’s on the Beach in Belize

Trade your coat for a bikini, your Santa cap for a straw hat, and instead of shoveling snow, sink your feet into some pristine white sand. Belize is a laid-back, tropical location, perfect for those searching for a less traditional and tranquil holiday season.

#3 Share the Magic of the Season on the Slopes in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe during the holidays is truly amazing. The ski resorts and quaint lakefront towns are buzzing with excitement. Although this area is known for its waterfront activities during the summer, the area transforms into a skier’s paradise in winter. You can visit local breweries, skate ski groomed trails, or enjoy the long list of holiday events that are put on all season long. For the adventurous family or group, Lake Tahoe is the perfect place to enjoy the season or usher in the New Year.

Family-Friendly Activities:
