The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has taken three decades of climatological measurements and combined them into a map showing the historical probability of a white Christmas across the United States. Here are five Christmas destinations from the U.S one can visit for the holidays.
ASPEN, COLO- Not only does Aspen have a 100 percent chance of having snow on the ground for Christmas (an average of 16 inches), the town was also recently voted one of North America's best winter wonderlands according to USA Today.
MCADENVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA- McAdenville, a small town about 20 minutes outside of Charlotte, gets so into the Christmas spirit each December that they change the name of their village to Christmas Town USA. According to Fodors, over 375 trees light a route perfect for a winter stroll through the McAdenville's downtown.
WINTHROP, WASH- The former mining community of Winthrop doesn't always have a white Christmas, but there's been snow on the ground on 95 percent of Christmas mornings between 1981 and 2010. There's a good chance there'll be snow in 2016.
KOZIAR'S CHRISTMAS VILLAGE- A regional hotspot for families, this popular Christmas town packs crowds in to gaze at the million-plus light displays, visit the small cottage dioramas and shops, as well as meet face to face with Mr. Claus.
MOUNT WASHINGTON, N.H.- For a New England white Christmas, give Mount Washington in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire a try. Historically, the area sees snow on the ground on Christmas Day on 94 percent of Christmases.
