Say Hello to a New “Home for the Holidays”

In just a few weeks, families will be ringing in the New Year by relaxing on the Oregon coast. Other families will spend Christmas skiing down some of the country’s best slopes or eating breakfast with Santa, while overlooking the mountains.

Having the holidays at a destination can provide a much-needed back from the traditional holiday stress, while providing fun and exciting programming for the whole family. The beautifully decorated hotels and resorts, along with the year-round stunning property views, don’t hurt either.

If you’re curious about starting some new traditions, some of MYPR’s clients have a great list of festive events to consider.
