Huntington Beach, California
Not a fan of the cold weather? With an average high of 70 degrees, this makes Huntington Beach the perfect low-cost holiday destination to visit in December. Not to mention one of the most budget-friendly yet luxurious beach towns.
You can celebrate your Christmas in this seaside city by lounging on the sandy beaches or enjoying unique events like the Cruise of Lights.
Get on board a boat tour setting sail in Huntington Harbor, and check out the animated displays and thousands of lights decorating the docks, boats, and homes.
Another great thing about this location? It’s just 20 miles away from Disneyland, where you can marvel at the fanciful decorations of Downtown Disney’s Winter Village, complete with Olaf’s “Frozen” ice rink surrounding a sparkling Christmas tree.
We bet the kids won’t want to pass up a chance to meet “Santa Mickey!”
