Hit the Road for the Holidays

ISLE OF PALMS, SC (PRWEB) November 1, 2006 — Autumn delivers the promise of many things: cooler temperatures after the unforgiving heat of the summer, a burst of subtle color that begins in the treetops, local festivities that share a community’s culture and tradition — and, of course, the dreaded anxiety produced by the impending holiday season. According to the American Psychological Association, one out of five Americans is afraid that holiday stress may affect their physical health.

This year, Wild Dunes Resort encourages families to let someone else manage the hassle and headache of holiday planning, entertaining, and cleaning—by taking the holidays on the road.

A few reasons to consider a holiday-away-from-home:

• Leave the cooking to someone else – No need to slave in the kitchen for days to prepare a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal; a resort can provide all the meals you need, whether at an onsite restaurant, or delivered right to your room.

• No cleaning required! That’s the beauty of taking a trip during the holidays — no constant cleaning up the living room from kids’ toys, or the bathrooms from five people showering consecutively, for five days straight. There are people who can do that, leaving time for a round (or many) of golf.

• Actually having quality time with family – Customize your experience and begin a new tradition by taking advantage of the many activities offered through a resort. Take family golf or tennis lessons, or rent bicycles for the family to ride down local trails. Many resorts also offer special holiday events and touches—Wild Dunes Resort offers the Little Gobbler’s Golf Clinic, a pancake breakfast with Santa, and even an Elf Tuck-In, where one of Santa’s helpers will read a bedtime story to children as they drift off to sleep.

Hitting the road this holiday season can give families the priceless gift of quality, relaxing time together — perhaps giving the best gift of all.
