Summer is sadly coming to a close, but not to fret. Hotels are now looking ahead into December and even showing some availability around the festive holiday season. With something to look forward to on the calendar, summer breezes and barbecues will be a distant memory. Check out some of these deals we've found:
Indianapolis is an easy road trip for those in the surrounding area. During the holiday season, the Circle of Lights illuminates the downtown area with toy soldiers and peppermint sticks accentuating the centerpiece. Near the Hilton Indianapolis Hotel & Suites, the Indianapolis Children's Museum features a lively exhibit where the little ones can help Santa prep his sleigh or take a holiday train ride.
On the shores of Toledo Bend Lake spreading across the Texas and Louisiana border, Cypress Bend Resort offers golf, spa and dining. Gather the family at this only resort on the lake to offer these amenities.
Opt to mix history with some holiday events in Beantown where the snow-dusted cobblestone streets suddenly bring Norman Rockwell to mind. While in Boston, forget the turkey and go for roasted lobster fresh from the sea.
Throw away the garland this year and don a lei instead. Upscale resorts on the Big Island, Maui and Kauai are already discounting rates for holidays on the islands.
On the island's highest point, the Fairmont Southampton overlooks lush Bermuda now offering rooms through the holiday season. Cast aside thoughts of the dreaded parka and boots, and instead imagine ocean breezes along a private beach, or teeing off at one of the golf courses to start the day.
