Winter Vacation Spots

Updated on September 1, 2013

A Change of Seasons

The majority of people take their vacations during the summer months. Try something different and take a vacation as a family or couple during the winter. You don't have to fight over the same summer vacation days with co-workers, plus being the envy of the office while away on a winter cruise.

The famous Ice Hotel located in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden is a magnificent creation constructed with tons of ice and snow from the nearby Torne River each year. This little village in Sweden has a variety of winter vacation packages available. Tourists must visit the Ice Hotel's famous bar, Absolut Ice Bar, if age 21 or older.

Mont Tremblant is a popular vacation destination mainly due to the more than 600 acres of snowboarding and skiing property. Mont Tremblant is located in the beautiful Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. The U.S. dollar is worth more in Canadian dollars, so buying souveniers won't be an expensive hassle.

A winter cruise to the Caribbeans makes a great vacation any time of the year. Get a tan in the winter that didn't come from a salon. A winter cruise could be just the thing for someone who lives in a region that has harsh winters.

The United States has a variety of gorgeous locations across the country. New England alone has many attractions including: White Mountain (New Hampshire) and Sugarloaf USA (Maine). The New England area has a multitude of ski resorts.

Hershey, Pennsylvania is a great place to visit during the Christmas season or for a winter getaway. During the Christmas season Hershey Park is transformed into Christmas Candyland and has over a million Christmas lights on display the month prior to Christmas.

Great Wolf Lodge in Wisconsin Dells is the perfect place for a winter family vacation with the kids. This family lodge has its own indoor water parks so kids can be supervised while parents relax. Kids enjoy the summer activities indoors, while parents watch snow falling outside.

Bordering California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe offers something for all ages, and it is considered to be one of the top winter vacation destinations in the United States. These exotic resorts turn into winter wonderland fantasies with their average of 360 inches of snowfall each year. Winter vacations could be a relaxing change.
