Travel at the Holidays, especially family travel can be stressful, but it can also be extremely rewarding. I love seeing how different places are decorated and getting to experience local traditions.
Last weekend we changed our plans and spent Saturday night in the Wisconsin Dells. This change meant that we got to see some of the towns decorations as well as attend a Three Kings Market at a local church. At the market our 3 year old got try different jellies and decorate Christmas cookies and we got to discover a delightful local chocolate maker. If we hadn’t stopped in the Dells we would have missed out on those things.
Tonight we are going to our local town’s Christmas Walk which includes a tree lighting, carolers, a carousel and more. It sounds very Hallmark movieish (maybe that’s part of why I love them) but it is also a wonderful experience that creates memories.
Whether traveling in your local area or traveling across the country, traveling at the holidays can help enhance your holiday experience and open you to new traditions. What are your favorite holiday traditions?
