What better way to welcome the holiday season than with family, festivities, and, of course, the perfect holiday portrait. Don’t just settle for mundane decorations or a white background for this year’s holiday card; head to one these locations to truly wow your loved ones – no Photoshop required.

There’s no need to scramble to deck the halls and put up the tallest Christmas tree for the perfect holiday portrait. Trade an ordinary fireplace backdrop for one of the country’s coziest hotel fireplaces – just find one near you.

Looking for something less formal … and posed? Get outside and take the kids to a nearby park for a photo shoot. For you city slickers, we’ve rounded up a list of some of our favorite urban parks. No excuses!

Capture their attention with breath-taking views of the ocean, coast, or mountains from your last vacation.  If your annual ski trip or beach house rental feels like a family reunion, why not use a photo from the last time you were all together?

Looking for more Everyday Escapes during the busiest travel time of the year? See our Holiday Tips for Family Travel.

Yesterday was the summer solstice, and now that the days are longer and the heat is rising, it’s time to fill those lazy days!
