The Hallmark Channel's #CountdownToChristmas 2020 movie series kicks off October 23.

I know, it’s only about to be November but let’s be serious. Christmas begins on November 1. At least for me and the majority of my fellow Christmas lovers, we want to enjoy as much time as possible to enjoy all of our holiday favorites. From home decor to gift shopping to planning your holiday celebration, its almost game time! I know some people do enjoy traveling for Christmas with their loved ones, so why not check out some of the best places to travel for Christmas? This year, Travel + Leisure released the 15 best places to go for Christmas in case you wanted to plan a trip this year. If so, luckily you may not have to travel too far from the Carolinas for one of the locations.

Travel + Leisure knows that the most wonderful time of the year can be spent anywhere you choose. It’s time to get in the holiday spirit and feel all of the holiday love! If you and your loved ones were wondering where to go, we got you covered. One North Carolina city made the top 15, but can you guess which city that is? Highlands, North Carolina is one of the best destinations for a 2022 Christmas. This charming, small town will allow you to experience a true Hallmark movie Christmas.
