Discovering holiday magic in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Category: Destinations | Favorites | On The SceneMegan Leader @ 05:22

At this time of year, it seems that everybody has his/her own traditions that draw on deep connections to family, home and heritage. I love the holidays because of all the traditions that coexist so beautifully. Twinkling lights, food and family seem to come to the forefront.

The holidays always remind me of why I love to travel: Everyone has a unique story.

From stunning architecture dotted with winter greenery to Christmas carols sung by candlelight, this city is full of experiences that will make you feel right at home, no matter where you're from.

"Snow" at Disney makes Christmastime magic

Category: Janet @ 05:48

The snow falls softly along the quiet street as you stroll, hand-in-hand with your favorite person. Perhaps you are enjoying a Christmas sugar cookie or a cup of warm hot chocolate. There are, of course, Christmas carols playing, wreaths hung overhead and trees decorated with any number of beautiful decorations. And there in the distance? The castle. More...
