Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations for a late December trip. We'll probably have 7 days, and we'll be driving. I really don't want it to be more than 15 hours away. We did Gatlinburg, TN last year and had an alright time. I'm not looking for ski towns or even snow necessarily, just some place interesting to get away for a week. We enjoy historical things of all kinds, natural adventures (hiking, caves, etc), dinner shows, shopping, haunted dwellings. Really we're open to anything. I was looking at Colorado Springs because of the caves and mountain dwellings, etc...but I'm not sure how great any of that would be in December. Maybe too cold? I also looked at Branson, but thought it might be a repeat of Gatlinburg...I'm not sure. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Late December vacation ideas within 15 hours of Louisiana??
