Need A Vacation? Give Yourself The Gift Of Traveling This Holiday Season

December 05, 2018

The holiday season is nearly here, which means it's almost time to unwind with your friends and family and enjoy each other's company.

 

But why spend time with your loved one's cooped up at home?

 

Don't let the winter season get you down during the most wonderful time of the year. Here are some of the top reasons why you and your family ought to travel this holiday season.

 

You have built-in vacation time

 

One of the biggest reasons why Americans often choose not to vacation is because they're worried they're going to fall behind at work. You don't need to worry about falling behind during the holidays.

 

In fact, during the holiday seasons, many employees get time off. Your kids get time off from school, too. That means you have more flexibility when it comes to travel times and dates.

 

Not as many people are traveling

 

Sure, many people are traveling extensively before and after the holiday season. But not many folks travel during the holiday season. Think of how many people buy flight tickets on the day of Thanksgiving versus how many people buy tickets two days before.

 

If you're willing to travel on holidays, you might be able to grab cheaper airfare too. Just be sure to act fast when you find a deal that works for you and your family.

 

For those who aren't willing to travel on holidays, you can still grab a deal. There tend to be smaller crowds and cheaper flights on the "dead" weeks of the holiday season.

 

The "dead" weeks include the two weeks before Christmas and the week just before New Years. Because most people are home preparing for the holiday, there won't be as many people traveling.

 

Looking for an Alaska luxury resort for your next vacation?

 

If you're looking for a little adventure this holiday season, consider taking your next vacation in Alaska. Alaska isn't as cold as many people think (the average winter temperature in Fahrenheit is in the 20s), and your kids will get to experience dog mushing season.

 

Up to 52% of Alaska's acreage may be wilderness, but that only adds to the state's charm. In fact, up to 1,857,500 out-of-state visitors came to Alaska between May and September 2016.

 

If nature vacations are right up your alley and you're looking for an Alaska luxury resort to spend it in, look no further than Stillpoint Lodge. For more information about our vacation resort and luxury lodge, contact Stillpoint Lodge today.
