Looking to get away this holiday season? When most people think of a vacation over winter break, their mind immediately goes to running somewhere tropical so that they can escape the frigid cold. Sure, we have plenty of warm weather destinations on this list if you want to lay out by the beach.

Here at Home Addict, we have gathered 30 of the best holiday escape destinations where you can still get into the Christmas spirit.
25. London, England
One of the best places in the world to go during Christmas time is London, England. It’s the home of the famous story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, after all. Many of the traditions that we all know and love in America all originated in England. They take holiday festivities very seriously. Nearly every street in the city is illuminated by lights, shops have gorgeous displays, and there are multiple Christmas markets. You you can enjoy sipping mulled wine, and eating figgy pudding. It can be the perfect place to get your shopping done just before the holidays.
In the winter, England is very grey and wet, so be sure to pack your coat, hat, and gloves. There is always the chance that it may snow, and you could enjoy a White Christmas abroad. The good news is that flights to England are significantly cheaper in the winter time. And since the Underground is so well-organized, it should be easy for you to hop on a train and visit another country, even if it’s just a day-trip to Paris. So if you have ever wanted to visit Europe, this may be a great excuse to go.
