Wanna Get Away For A Blissfully Enchanted Holiday?
If you're looking for an enchanted holiday season, like in fairy tales and movies, look no further. I've come across 5 towns, 2 right here in our state, that are a hop, skip, and a jump from us. Trips to discover has a not-to-miss, holiday magic list.
Of course, Whitefish. Nestled near Big Mountain, Whitefish has a wonderful, spellbinding appeal that harkens to Christmas cards, cocoa and general Christmas cheer.
Just not having it be another town on that side of the Mountains fills me with holly-jolly happiness. The article says West Yellowstone has an "idyllic winter". Ok, I'll go along with that, as long as we have 4-wheel drive. However, being surrounded by 3 National Forests and the entrance to Yellowstone National Park, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful place to get snowed-in for the holidays.
Wanna get out of Montana?
Home to 3 ski resorts, that alone should tell you Jackson would be a marvelous place to spend the holiday season.
Deadwood, South Dakota
Located in the gorgeous Black Hills of South Dakota, Deadwood is also a couple miles away from Terry Peak Ski Resort. This cozy mountain town would make a great holiday tradition. Honestly, if it was good enough for Wild Bill, I'd give Deadwood a try, just for the history!
Nestled with near by Brundage Mountain with all kinds of skiing, McCall sees around 130 inches of snow a year and features lots of cross-country skiing as well and a festival in January. You're sure to have a white Christmas here.
And finally, because Christmas can't get here soon enough, here's how I imagine the North Pole in the Winter. It's just a little TOO cold for this Montana girl.
