Secret Holiday Hotspots Make Christmas Road Trips Worthwhile

DETROIT (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Christmas road travel may be really annoying – but not if you’ve got the right pit stops along the way.

According to Becky Repp, a road trip veteran and editor of American Road magazine, the holidays are a great time to road trip to some strange and secret Christmas hotspots.

For instance, Repp says the “Winter Waterland” attraction in Weeki Wachee Springs, Florida, features a real-live holiday mermaid show.

Meanwhile, the town of North Pole, Alaska, boasts the World’s Largest Santa Claus which is 48 feet tall, 33 feet wide, and requires more than 20 gallons of red, black and white paint to have the proper Christmas look.

However, Repp suggests the weirdest, most overlooked holiday hotspot is the Bigfoot Scenic Byway in Happy Camp, California. Not only can travelers enjoy lots of holiday lights, they may even get a Christmas present from Bigfoot himself.

Says Repp: “Bigfoot is known to leave gifts for those who leave food for him. So if you leave him a fruitcake, he may leave you a Christmas present.”
