It’s no secret among families and friends that we all love Christmas holiday activities like sharing good times, meals and traveling to different places together.
Most people consider traveling to different places around the world rather than staying in the comfort of their homes during Christmas; thanks to this handy run-through of places to visit this festive season, all with accessibility and inclusion kept firmly in mind.
Mistletoe in Manhattan – New York, United States of America
What could be better than a visit to New York? During Christmas movies, people do not miss out on miracles like 34th Street and Home Alone 2. There’s always something to capture everyone’s attention, from winter strolls through Central Park to the bright lights of Broadway to the ‘Big Apple.’ With its many attraction sites, transport, and restaurants affordable by all, NYC is a beautiful place to visit during Christmas with easy accessibility.
Santa in the Sun – Sydney, Australia
Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere, especially Australia, should be at the top of your list. If you are looking for a far-flung travel destination to spend your Christmas at, consider Sydney because it has accessible beaches and beautiful kangaroos. Beaches such as Collaroy have wheelchairs that roll on sand, and disabled toilets with adult changing spaces and a potential splash in the sea – a novelty for many during the winter months; you will indeed have a fun family Christmas holiday.
The Magic of Christmas Markets – Munich, Germany
When planning for a Christmas holiday, think about the German Christmas market. These old-tradition markets have pretty glowing lights and aromatic smells, and they should be on everybody’s Christmas bucket list!
Munich City hosts a Christmas market in its center with a magnificent tree covered in dazzling lights. This place is romantic and should be your choice if you want to travel during Christmas!
Island Festivities – Isle of Skye, Scotland
Sometimes you need to take a break from your hustle and bustle life. The best time for that is Christmas! If you’re thinking about heading elsewhere utterly beautiful this Christmas, then why not consider the Isle of Skye in Scotland – with gorgeous, accessible lodges available throughout the Christmas period. British in particular, is a fantastic accessible property with a roll-in shower wet room.
Greetings from Santa’s Grotto – Lapland, Northern Sweden/Finland
“Nothing like home for the holidays,” is a common phrase discouraged by people who have visited Santa before. Visiting Santa during Christmas is like stepping into a snow globe. This is the most exemplary town to take your kids to see Santa Claus in magical Lapland and many things like Huskey-drawn sled rides. Also, if you are traveling with a wheelchair, there are several accessible options available when considering Lapland, with websites such as disabledholidays.com providing further details.
