We are inching closer to the big day and time is running out to find that perfect present. However, according to a new survey, the perfect present doesn't come in a box for many Missourians who wish to get away for the holidays. I couldn't agree more.

It's not a mountain getaway, a weekend in a remote cabin, or going to a big city like New York or Chicago. Nope, what Missourians want most is a beach vacation for Christmas, and I can't argue with them who wouldn't. Aqua Expeditions put out this survey and an overwhelming number of Missourians want a dream beach vacation for Christmas.

The most important element of booking a dream vacation according to this survey, Missourians want beautiful views and would rather stay in a hotel than a beach house. For me, as long as I am on the beach relaxing with an adult beverage in my hand it doesn't matter where I stay as long as I am relaxing and taking in the atmosphere. On average Missourians will spend about $7,100 on their dream vacation.

Five states (Texas, North Carolina, Minnesota, Kentucky, and Louisiana) voted to head to the mountains for a dream vacation and two (Nevada and Hawaii) voted to fly within the state, which makes sense. So if you're looking for the perfect present still there is time to plan that perfect dream beach vacation.
