Families who want a snow-free winter escape will be tempted by the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, which is hosting special holiday events and activities for all ages.
For kids who forgot to write that letter to Santa -- don't fret. They can dash off a last-minute note and post it in the red mailbox in the Biltmore lobby. Want to hobnob with Mrs. Claus? Join her for story time on Dec. 8, 15 and 22 as well as on Christmas Eve. For adults who need stress relief from last-minute shopping, there's the Holiday Bliss massage and complimentary wine tastings on Friday evenings in December. Special dinners on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve also are planned.
