Re: Strategies for Holiday Travel
I usually try not to go anywhere that requires flying over the holidays, since airfare is so expensive that time of year. Around Thanksgiving and Christmas I do a LOT of driving from one family member's house to another (my parents are three hours away), and then I often like to go to Ocean City, NJ for New Year's. They do a little first night sort of celebration there, but I mainly go because it's so cozy to hole up at the beach in the off-season. And you never know what the weather will do -- two years ago it was in the 60's over that weekend, so we went out walking on the beach and had a great time!
