For the successful, conventional can become mundane. For the thrill-seekers, and those that march to the beat of their own drum, SeekingMillionaire asked some of its members to name the best unconventional ways to celebrate the holidays.
Wine Tasting and Hot Air Balloon
There’s no better way to check out Christmas decorations than several hundred feet up in the air. Most hot air balloon festivals happen around spring or fall, but travelers can find operators in wine country.
Hiking a Snow Capped Mountain
Not for the faint of heart, but a breath-taking view awaits anyone brave enough to make the climb. Popular destinations will have lodges that treat visitors to spas with mountain views.
Looking for an interactive experience? Geocaching is a new fad taking the world by storm. Participants are treated to the real-world outdoor treasure hunt. “Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.”
Backpacking in Latin America
For those seeking respite from the cold, Latin America offers warmer climates during the coldest time of the year. The best thing is that most of destinations are fairly affordable when flying in from the United States.
