Where to Travel in December

Whether you want to chase fresh powder or escape to a warm-weather getaway, amp up your holiday season with the best places to travel in December. From the beaches to the slopes, we have you covered.

Hollywood, Florida

Located between the Venice of America (Fort Lauderdale) and Magic City (Miami), Hollywood, Florida will heat up your winter vacation. Go for the town’s famous beaches and stay for games and live entertainment at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Give yourself an extra day for a day trip to Miami Beach for the 17th edition of Art Basel (December 5-8, 2019).

New York

Ice-skating in Central Park. The tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. Window shopping on Fifth Avenue. What’s not to love about December in New York? Nothing says rock ’n roll like a sweet sip of a boozy milkshake or hot fudge brownie from Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. If you’re up for a longer journey, head to south Brooklyn, where the Dyker Heights neighborhood puts on a breathtaking Christmas lights display.

Las Vegas

At Hard Rock Las Vegas, you can party like a rock star all December — but especially on New Year’s Eve. Ring in 2020 with great music, an otherworldly fireworks display, and a premium open bar at the Hard Rock Cafe on the Las Vegas Strip. You’ll also enjoy moderate temperatures, averaging in the ’60s, making December one of the best times of year to visit Sin City.

Davos, Switzerland

Forget log cabins and fondue. Davos is the quintessential Swiss Alps escape that delivers the white Christmas of your dreams. Pros can hit the giant slopes while beginners enjoy the bunny hill. But to get into the holiday vibe, we suggest a horse-drawn carriage ride through the valleys in Dischma or Sertig, as well as plenty of cozy après ski activities.

Desperate for a December escape? Get way, way out of Dodge on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean. Trade winter weather for the good life in the Emboodhoo Lagoon, where you can switch off and relax in your own villa — complete with direct beach access, sun loungers, and waterfall showers. Or you can turn up the volume at the Marina @ CROSSROADS, a lifestyle commercial complex with shopping, dining, and entertainment.
