4. Go to a Theme Park

Places like Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm turn their grounds into magical winter wonderlands this time of year. There really is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than seeing Mickey in a Santa hat.

7. Visit a Nearby Hotel

Resorts like the Ritz Carlton deck their halls in December and there's no need for a night's stay to enjoy the decor. Check out their calendar for things like afternoon tea—or hop on over for dinner, cocktails or (your pup's favorite) Yappy Hour.

8. Spend a Night or Two in a Cabin

If you're close to the mountains, check out VRBO and Airbnb for romantic weekend getaways. A fireplace is a must.
