Top 10 Best Christmas Towns to Put on Your Holiday Bucket List

This is what Christmas magic looks like.

While the old adage "there's no place like home for the holidays" sure can be true, these amazing Christmas towns across the country are real contenders for top-notch holiday spirit. With some of the best Christmas light displays, holiday decorating, holiday craft fairs, and other festive family activities on their calendars, these towns should definitely make this year's Christmas bucket list. Even if you're staying closer to home this holiday, these towns are worth a weekend trip for the fun-filled holiday experience.

We know what you're thinking, of course. You're veritably obsessed with the holiday, from the Christmas cookies to the outdoor Christmas decorations to belting out classic Christmas songs. What could we possibly tell you here that you don't already know? A lot, that's what! From wine country to Myrtle Beach, we bet there's a hidden gem somewhere in here you've never even heard of, let alone laid eyes on. You're probably not familiar with Santa Claus, Indiana, for instance—but believe it or not, the town has dubbed itself "America's Christmas Hometown." And we'll guess you've never touched down in a little town called North Pole, Alaska, right? There, the mayor's actual name is Santa Claus and the streets are decorated in red and white all the way through to New Year's Eve (and sometimes all year) long.

We know, we know: It sounds like something out of one of your favorite winter movies. But these towns are for real—and all you have to do to witness their Hallmark Christmas movie–worthy magic is book your trip. Just be sure to check websites for the latest updates on 2021 events, as some may be effected or cancelled due to coronavirus precautions.
