Blue Monday. Synonymous for post-Christmas blues, long, dark evenings and a general sense of gloom in the air, this National Awareness Day isn’t normally a cause for celebration. However, at Grand American Adventures we think this is a perfect opportunity to start planning your next year of unforgettable adventures across the Americas. In keeping with the blue theme, we’ve handpicked a couple of our favourite blue destinations to spark your spirit of wanderlust this January!
Whether you’re craving urban adventures or wilderness discoveries in 2020 (or perhaps a blend of both), the USA and Canada boast a rich variety that is bound to tick off your bucket list.

And in the west, cityscapes meet vast deserts. Which direction will you take this year?

Perhaps that’s why we’re so drawn to these US destinations at Christmas time. Here are our top picks for the most Christmassy places in America…
