The Most Wonderful Time of the Year...To Travel

The holidays are upon us, and while for many that means family gatherings, frenzied trips to the mall, and plenty of baking (mom there better be baking), for me it means it is time to travel. We plan a big trip around the holidays every year, and certainly this year is no different. Some call me crazy because that travel almost always involves heading to the cold, but that is usually by design. There is something about hot and humid Florida doesn't say "the holidays" to me. So while birds and most tourists head south this time of year, we usually do the opposite. Here's a look at my favorite memories of holiday travel from the last few years....

Asheville, North Carolina

And of course, a little last minute shopping.

This year our adventures take us to a couple destinations synonymous with holiday travel...Disneyland and Vegas. OK, so that might be a bit of a stretch for Vegas, but I'm sure there's gotta be a Christmas tree somewhere in Sin City. Man...talk about irony.
