Condé Nast Traveler Logo By Caitlin Morton of Condé Nast Traveler | Slide 1 of 20: Europe might get most of the hype during the holiday season (those Christmas markets are pretty great), but there are plenty of festive cities right here in the U.S. While we'd recommend visiting any time of the year, these cities seem to shine just a little bit brighter—in many cases, quite literally—during the Christmas season. Whether they're New England towns with major storybook vibes or some of the country's biggest and brightest metropolises, celebrating in these cities is worth the price of a domestic plane ticket. And let's face it: You haven't really experienced Christmas cheer until you see it through the shiny lens of Las Vegas. From Austin to Washington, D.C., here are 19 of the best places to spend Christmas in the U.S.
