Christmas Mountain Village — Wisconsin Dells, Wisc.

It's always Christmas at Christmas Mountain Village, a Wisconsin Dells golf resort by summer and ski resort by winter. Cozy cabins are set amongst towering pines and feature wood or gas fireplaces and full kitchens. Take your pick from a variety of onsite winter sports, including skiing, tubing, and sledding. The annual Winter Carnival (February 7, 2015) celebrates the season with outdoor activities for everyone, from snow art contests to snowball launches, as well as a torchlight parade and fireworks in the evening. Enjoy a lovely view of the slopes and a cozy Christmas-y lodge ambiance at Mulligan's while you indulge in nachos topped with gooey Wisconsin cheddar cheese, freshly sauteed Walleye or birdie brats.
