Many people like to gamble during the festive period, but most of us will opt for the convenience of real money online gaming, which usually comes with generous promotions such as the one daily free spin on Paddy Power. While many will head to the City of Sin to gamble, there are plenty of Christmas activities to enjoy too. The iconic Fountains of Bellagio will be set to some Christmas songs that are ideal for the holiday season, and the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens go all out with the seasonal decorations.

The Cosmopolitan Ice-Skating Rink offers snow showers, breathtaking vistas of the Las Vegas Strip, and occasional special events that include DJs and skating dogs. With one of the greatest drive-through light displays in the nation including 5 million lights and 1,000 show pieces across a 2.5-mile course, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway also joins in on the holiday fun. The Strip may seem like an unusual place to spend Christmas Day, but it will be bustling with activity that day with everything open and plenty to do.

Although medieval Bruges is beautiful all year round, Winter Glow brings it to life. The city is transformed into a winter wonderland from the end of November to the beginning of January with small Christmas villages occupying three of the city’s squares, a light trail, an ice rink, and decorations all over the place. 

Belgians are justifiably proud of their beverages. Take a seat at one of the city’s cosiest beer bars so you may enjoy a drink in the comfort of a traditional Belgian pub away from the hustle and bustle and freezing cold. Bruges is also the ideal location to purchase handcrafted Belgian chocolates to indulge yourself or have something for your loved ones back home.

Additionally, the city prohibits traffic on the main commercial streets for 16 days during Winter Glow and provides free public transit. These three beautiful locations make for a picture-perfect Christmas holiday.
