We often visualise Christmas as a season with fairy lights, Christmas trees, hot chocolate, cosy reads, rom-coms and everything warm and friendly; just like our favourite Christmas movies have shown us. Every kid, teenager or adult dreams of visiting these lit-up Christmas towns where everyone is merry, and Santa Claus visits on a sleigh, giving gifts like it's a fairytale. This year, we have curated a list of travel destinations straight out of the Christmas movies which have been loved by adults and kids alike. Yes, you too can be a part of this dreamy world, this holiday season.
7 Holiday Destinations From Winter Movies You Can Visit RN!
1. London, England
We all know that Christmas in London is a grand affair. And to prove this we have Hollywood movies like 'Love Actually' and 'A Christmas Carol'. Love Actually, ever since its release in 2003, became a Christmas classic with numerous touristy destinations like Heaththrow Airport, Grasvenor chapel and Selfridges on Oxford streets. Christmas Carol also had a breathtaking aerial view of the city during Christmas which made us want to visit the city.
2. New York, USA
One movie that is on the tongue of every kid and adult which reminds you of Christmas is Home Alone. The movie beautifully captured New York City in its glitter and glamour during the Christmas festivities, making every viewer dream of visiting NYC during Christmas. When in New York, don't forget to visit the famous Rockefeller centre which is a famous sequence in numerous movies.
Chicago is unmissable when it comes to Christmas decorations and the festive vibe in general. The movie While You Were Sleeping was filmed in Chicago and gave us a gist of how the city celebrates the holiday. Now is the time to see it yourself, don't you think?
4. Cleveland, Ohio
The Christmas story house from the 1983 classic 'A Christmas Story' is in Cleveland, Ohio and is open for the public to view. The house is decorated with props to match the original movie set. Movie props are also displayed at the onsite museum. Guess it's time to add Ohio to your Christmas travel lists.
5. Orchard house, Canada
Have you watched 'Little Women' as a Christmas classic? It is definitely a holiday classic with warm moments and togetherness. A replica set of the actual Orchard House is built in Canada. The actual Orchard House is also open to public visit and is the same place where author Louisa May Alcott lived and wrote the Little Women novel,
6. Snowshill, England
This town in England was home to the lead actress in Bridget Jones's Diary. We can relate this movie to Christmas festivities though the plot doesn't revolve around Christmas. However the movie ends with holidays.
7. Bohemian Switzerland, Czech Republic
With a white Christmas in The Chronicles of Narnia and the Santa Claus making an appearance himself, Bohemian Switzerland is definitely a great representation of the snow-clad fantasyland and definitely a must-visit place if you don't mind the harsh winter.
We hope you find our list helpful in making your holiday plans.
