If you’re too busy to plan a bunch of holiday events, consider heading to The Cloister, where everything is planned for you. This Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel goes all out during the winter with family events planned throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas. Kids can visit with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, munch on cookies while hearing classic Christmas tales and get tucked into bed by one of Santa’s elves. If you brought your dog along, get your four-legged friend in the holiday spirit by dressing him up for the Sea Island hotel’s annual Reindog Parade.
The Reindeer Dash Family Fun Run takes place on Christmas Eve morning, and later that night, following religious services in The Cloister Chapel, join the Yule Log Ceremony to sing carols and sip eggnog with fellow guests. After you’ve opened presents on Christmas morning, a sumptuous lunch is served in The Cloister Ballroom. Cap off the holiday by enjoying the luxury hotel’s It’s a Wonderful Life buffet, where you’ll dine on excellent food while watching the traditional Christmas flick.
