Woodstock, VT

Woodstock, Vermont is one of those New England towns where every house looks picture-perfect, and the townspeople are more than aware of their vaunted reputation. Every year, tourists come from all over the country to glimpse the stately mansions decked out in elegant lights, pine boughs, and just the perfect amount of snow.

The town’s annual Wassail Weekend takes place in early December and has been named one of the best Christmas celebrations in New England. There are tons of craft fairs, community events, and a parade. Plus, the Woodstock Inn really gets into the holiday spirit with their life-sized gingerbread house that’s on display in the lobby.

Asheville, NC

The mountain town of Asheville, North Carolina hosts annual Christmas events that are traditional with just a little bit of playful holiday magic thrown in for good measure.
