What type of winter traveler are you? Some people love the winter because it provides opportunities to hit the slopes and engage in other winter activities. However, other individuals prefer to escape cold weather in favor of warmer climates. And whether you are a snow bunny or a winter beach bunny, there are incredible travel options available.
U.S. residents enjoy incredible travel options because the country offers a variety of climates during every season. Even in the winter, the southern coast offers beachcomber opportunities throughout December, January, and February. Or, you can visit Hawaii. For skiing and snowboarding opportunities, on the other hand, check out Colorado, Michigan, and other mid-western and northern states. Just Google your location of choice to check the weather during your intended travel time.
Also, here is some great news – airlines and hotels typically lower their prices throughout January and February (after the holidays). Therefore, late winter travel makes sense economically. Plus, many Americans enjoy long weekends on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Presidents Day.
Finally, if you love festivals, you can take advantage of fun events like the Winterfest in Bend, Oregon and the International Snow Sculpture Championship in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. These types of festivals occur all over the United States, so check the internet to find out if a winter-themed festival is happening in a state that you want to visit.
