Best Christmas Towns in Northern California

November 22, 2021

Where is the best place to spend Christmas in Northern California?  

Just because California is often thought of as a surfer’s paradise with endless beaches and amazing ocean sunsets (okay, it is all those things, but still) doesn’t mean it doesn’t know how to have some amazing holidays! In fact, when it comes to holiday festivities, we suspect Northern California might be one of the best places around for exactly that. If you’re a lover of wine country, you can find plenty of that here, and one of the best possible things to do during this magical season is to get yourself a Winter in the Wineries passport and tour 14 amazing wineries all getting ready for the holidays. Grab a bottle of wine (or more, we’re not gonna judge) and gift it to that special someone! Plenty of Northern California’s small towns do Christmas amazingly, like Napa and Carmel By The Sea. These towns love going above and beyond to embrace the Christmas spirit like no other towns in Cali do.  

What are some fun things to do at Christmas in Northern California?  

We’re here to tell you that no matter what you like to do, you can find it here in Northern California. Sure, we may not be known for our epic skiing or white Christmases like other states usually are – but maybe we ought to be! In fact, there are some towns in Northern California that do see white Christmases, and we think those are some of the best ones to visit during this magical time of year. For example, Truckee, California, sees an average of 204 inches of snow every year. That’s 17 feet of the white stuff, and that puts California on the map as a Christmas-town state (or so we think). There are also places like Kirkwood, Quincy, and good ol’ South Lake Tahoe. In these places (and plenty of others around the state), you can go sledding, build snowmen, tour some amazing Christmas lights displays, attend plenty of holiday festivals and events, and so much more. Dreaming of the perfect Christmas? Spend it at any one of these gorgeous Northern California towns that are perfect for winter.
