Celebrating Life’s Moments on Vacation

As those of us in the hospitality industry can attest, there is always a reason to celebrate! Be it anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, graduations, really any momentous occasion . . . what better way to celebrate than to go away on vacation! Commemorating these milestones with a special trip makes them
even more unforgettable. Whether you want to travel near or far, as a couple or as a group, in luxury or on a budget, there are plenty of places from which
to choose! Here are some of our top suggestions:


The options are endless! Get creative, travel “back in time,” and visit your childhood hometown, college town, or maybe even your favorite vacation spot but stay somewhere new and explore it in a whole new light. For the younger set looking for cities that never sleep, there’s nowhere like Vegas, Miami, or N.Y.C. when
celebrating a 21st birthday!

Or maybe you’re passionate about a certain hobby or interest . . .why not gift yourself a trip where you (and those you love) can be immersed in that activity? If you
are an adventure junkie, consider a hike up magnificent Macchu Piccu. Or maybe food is your thing — food festivals and culinary tours have really gained steam and are popping up all over the country!


If you don’t mind the long plane ride, why not try somewhere remote and gorgeous such as the Maldives, Bora Bora, or the Seychelles? These island destinations have been voted some of the most incredible on the planet, and they offer picturesque beaches, perfect weather, and unrivaled relaxation.

If hours of flying aren’t your thing, there are plenty of romantic destinations that are still close to home! Our very own sister property, The Lodge at Woodloch: A Destination Spa, right here in Hawley, PA offers a romance package aptly named the “Couple’s Retreat” which includes upscale accommodations, gourmet meals,
spa treatments, and full access to luxurious spa and fitness facilities as well as romantic extras like wine and petal turndown service.

While heading home for the holidays can be nice, sometimes you need tobreak with the old and bring in thenew! Holidays can be the perfect time
to get away as a group because most schools and businesses close (or at least slow down) so you already know the gang has the necessary time off.
Holiday travel times can definitely be busier than other parts of the year, but keep an eye out. Different hotels and resorts are always running specials,
and what better gift to give than the gift of travel! The memories made with family on vacation will last a lifetime (that can’t be said about the pleather
jacket you gave Aunt Sue 11 years ago)!

It’s worth noting that an all-inclusive option is always nice when it comes to travel during the holidays. When your accommodations, meals, activities,
and entertainment are all a part of the package, you don’t have to worry about a thing (i.e. all that clean up after making a giant holiday meal)!
That being said, you might want to keep Woodloch in mind for your next family trip for the holidays . . . or anytime!
