If you’re not headed home, here’s where you should go instead

The holidays, they often say, are for family, but some years you just want to do your own thing. Maybe the thought of holiday travel triggers a migraine. Maybe you haven’t quite gotten over Thanksgiving’s political arguments. Maybe you never really liked tinsel and twinkly lights to begin with. Or maybe you’d rather spend your vacation, well, vacationing. Whatever the reason, we applaud you for doing your own thing. But the big question is, now that the world is your oyster, where should you actually go?
