If you’re staying in Oregon for the holidays, several annual events take place close to Portland hotels. Start the season off right at the Holiday Ale Festival to see the largest decorated Christmas tree in the region. Next, head to the Oregon Ballet Theater for an annual performance of the “Nutcracker” or other classics, like “Swan Lake.”
Walking around the Festival of Lights at the Grotto or seeing the Lights on Peacock Lane will also put you in the holiday spirit. Other attractions you won’t want to miss in Portland around the holidays include the Zoolights Festival, Winter Wonderland at the Portland International Raceway, the Christmas Ship Parade, and the Cinnamon Bear Cruise.

The Country Music Hall of Fame also hosts its annual Deck the Halls Concert Series with free activities, live music, and more. Plus, there are tons of outdoor holiday light displays close to Nashville hotels, such as the Enchanted Garden of Lights, Smoky Mountain Winterfest, and Holiday Lights at Cheekwood. Everything looks magical on these chilly nights.

New York City, New York
New York City is a magical place to spend the holidays. The city sparkles with holiday lights from Time Square and Rockefeller Center to Central Park and Fifth Avenue.
