10 Perfect Christmas Shopping Getaways
Lebanon rests in pretty, snow-dusted farm country 30 minutes north of Cincinnati. This Yankee-influenced town has all the ingredients of the perfect holiday shopping weekend -- dozens of stores, inns and food worth throwing away the calorie counts. The downtown, with narrow brick and stone storefronts, looks as if it could have been drawn from the pages of a Dickens tale.
Among our favorites in Lebanon: for shopping, Exotic Art and Antiques and Oh Suzanna; for eating, Village Ice Cream Parlor and Restaurant; for lodging, the 200-year-old Golden Lamb or the Victorian-era homes of Hardy's Bed and Breakfast.
