The “winter blahs” often set in after the holidays and the season appears to drag on, but a winter getaway is a terrific antidote. When it comes to the purpose of one’s winter break, everyone is on a different page. Some people would want to go skiing, while others would just like to experience the joys of a winter wonderland, complete with snow-covered mountains, roaring fires, warm beverages, and fresh air. Some people, on the other hand, are desperate to escape the winter and instead soak up the rays and take a dip in the tropics.

Our top seven recommendations for winter getaways in the United States are listed below. Whether you’re searching for a snowy mountain retreat or a sunny beach getaway, these are the winter destinations we recommend most.

Wyoming’s Jackson Hole

Skiers flock here because of the generous snowfall (458 inches annually), namely at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Snow King Resort. In addition to the usual winter sports like skiing and snowboarding, you may also enjoy snow tubing, snowshoeing, ice skating, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, and back country skiing. Yellowstone National Park is close by, and snowcoach trips provide a cozy and warm way to see the park’s sights like Old Faithful, the boiling mud pots, and the local animals. Yellowstone National Park also offers thrilling snowmobile trips throughout the winter months.

Missouri’s St. Louis

Daytime highs in the winter are often in the 40s, but if you’d rather stay indoors because of the chill, there’s enough to keep you occupied. The St. Louis Art Museum is one of the best in the United States; it was established in 1879 and relocated to its present location for the 1904 World’s Fair. The Gateway Arch, the highest artificial landmark in the United States at 630 feet, has a tram that takes visitors to the observation deck at the top, where they can take in dordle breathtaking views of the city below.

Utah’s St. George

St. George has pleasant daytime temps in the 50s and colder evenings due to its desert environment, and it’s just 4.5 hours away from Salt Lake City (or 2 hours from Las Vegas) through a picturesque journey. There are several museums, art galleries, restaurants, and cafés to explore throughout the city’s old central district. Zion National Park is a sight to see, and it’s accessible all year with routes suitable for hiking and mountain riding. Despite its name, the red sandstone mountains, horseback riding, and beautiful landscape of Snow Canyon State Park, which is just 15 minutes from St. George, are seldom covered in snow.

Geographical Location

Louisville, home to the Kentucky Derby, the whiskey Trail, the Louisville Slugger baseball bat, and delicious cuisine, is known for its frigid winters, but offers plenty of indoor activities and whiskey to keep visitors warm. The city’s location on the Ohio River near the state line with Indiana gives rise to a number of distinct tourism draws. The Kentucky Derby Museum tells the story of the famous yearly horse race, while baseball lovers may spend time at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. Those interested in bourbon should visit one of the several distilleries in the area.

Desert Hot Springs, Florida

This picturesque desert city is just two hours east of Los Angeles, and it has golf courses, spas, casinos, and a local hot springs. There’s something for everyone among the city’s array of hip eateries, chic hotels, luxurious spas, and refined boutiques. Anyone looking for a day in the snow may find it at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, along with a pleasant ride, amazing vistas, snow, and freezing temps. The spectacular rock formations, cactus, and starry night sky of Joshua Tree National Park are only an hour away.

Specifically, the city of Key West in Florida

This popular route takes tourists on a three-and-a-half-hour journey over 42 bridges from Miami to Florida’s southernmost tip. Tourists from all over the globe come to enjoy the warm winter weather, rich history, and variety of water activities available in the region. Duval Street’s restaurants and bars provide a Caribbean vibe in the evenings after a day of diving and snorkeling amid the coral reefs. This eccentric city is one of our favorites to visit in the winter if we’re longing for some Florida sunshine, and it’s home to some of the most popular tourist destinations in the state, including historic architecture, the Key West City Cemetery, and the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum.

Vermont’s Burlington

Burlington, Vermont’s biggest city, is situated in the state’s northwest on the coast of Lake Champlain and is one of the greatest locations to visit in the winter if you enjoy snow. It is also in close proximity to Burlington International Airport. Stowe, Smugglers’ Notch, and Bolton Valley are just few of the major ski resorts within an hour of the city, and they provide terrain for skiers of all skill levels. It has a wide range of accommodation choices, from quaint B&Bs to hotels, and a lively downtown filled with shops, restaurants, microbreweries, live music venues, and the lovely Church Street Marketplace.
