Where to Go for Christmas in 2017
Tempted to skip town for the holidays? Here are a few places we recommend.
White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia
West Virginia might not be the first place that comes to mind for a late December getaway, but that’s probably because you’ve never spent Christmas at The Greenbrier. The historic hotel—which has hosted 26 U.S. presidents—pulls out all the stops for its guests as part of a “60 Days of Holiday Cheer” tradition. On property, you’ll find more than 100 Christmas trees, 120,000 lights, 2,000 poinsettias, a 2,000 pound chocolate display, and a plethora of holiday-centric meals and events.
The floods in Texas heavily impacted the Houston Texans, who called The Greenbrier home for three weeks during their Training Camp at The Greenbrier Sports Performance Center this past summer. More than half of the players and operational staff of the Texans were affected by the waters.
They wish to thank The Greenbrier Family for their support during Hurricane Harvey. We raised approximately $12,500 for their Employee Fund and will continue to accept donations on their behalf.

If you would like to donate to help those extended family members get back on their feet, checks can be made payable to: “The Houston Texans” with “Flood Relief for Employees” indicated on the subject line. Texans representatives have promised that 100% of the money raised will go to those staff members in need. Checks can be mailed to:
300 West Main Street
White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986
Everyone at The Greenbrier Sporting Club sends prayers and best wishes to the Houston Texans and everyone impacted by the recent devastating floods.
