Though the holiday season is usually busy enough without adding a vacation on top of it, we're starting to think that December might be a good time for our next getaway — and we don't even have to leave the country to do it.
One account on TikTok, @aperfectchristmas25, is rounding up the best spots in the US to visit for all the holiday spirit, and it's making it a real challenge not to start looking for flights immediately (though the heat of the end of summer might have a little something to do with it).
For example: We had no idea that Albuquerque, New Mexico had so much holly and jolliness until we saw this clip.
If all of these sights can be seen there in December, sign us up — that cactus covered in Christmas lights is too cute!
The other videos this account has shared are offering up some major inspiration, too. One video highlighted Leavenworth, Washington, where travelers can find an adorable Bavarian village that looks like it's actually in Germany, including cute decor, fun shops, and lots of yummy food to try.
Another really made us want to plan a trip to Tennessee after seeing snowy cabins, a lit up ferris wheel, and the reminder that Dollywood is nearby. There are so many options!
Maybe we should do a vacation instead of gifts this year...
