After taking heat last year for going to Disney World during a blizzard, Gov. Chris Christie says there's "no way" he'll be going far this holiday season.

Christie was criticized last December after he took off for vacation in Florida, just ahead of a blizzard. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno also was vacationing at the time.

The GOP governor says he may venture into New York City to take his children to a Broadway show, but otherwise plans to stay in New Jersey this year.

Christie says he'll be attending the Christmas Eve Jets-Giants game, where he will be rooting for Gang Green.
