2. Los Angeles, California

Although you likely won’t find snow in L.A., you’ll find plenty of Christmas spirit. For example, Olvera Street celebrates with a version of The Posadas that the public can participate in. The Posadas depicts the passage of Mary and Joseph, asking if there is any room at the inn. Neighborhoods host these processions with a different family hosting festivities each night. Also, take in one of the tallest Christmas trees in the nation at The Grove outdoor shopping mall; its height often exceeds the height of the Rockefeller tree in New York.
