"Home for the Holidays" is a familiar refrain during December. But for a growing segment of Americans and international travelers, Christmastime has become a popular time to travel.

There are a couple of reasons why this may be the case. For some, it is easiest to take time off of work in the time between Christmas and New Year's. Further, many families lived scattered throughout the country, so a Christmastime holiday in a fun location makes sense. In some cases, traveling during Christmas can also be affordable if you know where to look for travel deals.

On the next few pages are some of the most popular places in the U.S. to visit during Christmas. Some of these destinations are the usual suspects - New York City, Chicago - while others may surprise you. Use this information to plan your own Christmas travels or simply to get in the Christmas or travel spirit.
