Try our picks for the best seasonal escapes!
There’s a chill in the air, which means that winter is just on the horizon! Travel is back and better (and safer!) than ever, making this a great time to book a winter break trip or family vacation.
Whether you’re looking to hit the slopes, relax with a pina colada on the beach, or somewhere in between, the possibilities are endless with this list of the best winter getaways.
Skiing in a Winter Wonderland
Do you prefer to stick to bunny hills, or are you more of a double black diamond aficionado? No matter your skill level, skiing is a natural choice when it comes to winter getaways.
The state of Colorado is synonymous with skiing. Breckenridge, about 90 minutes southwest of Denver, is widely considered to have some of the best downhill skiing in the U.S., as well as ample opportunities for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Aspen has long been a premier ski destination for the well-heeled looking for top-notch ski conditions and high-end restaurants and shopping.
Other notable ski destinations in the U.S. include Park City, Sun Valley, Jackson Hole, and Big Sky.
If you’re looking to really get into the winter spirit and go big for the holidays, the charming city of Lucerne, Switzerland, is straight out of a Christmas snow globe. Just a 40-minute drive from Zurich and nestled in the Swiss Alps, Lucerne is steeped in history and culture.
Wherever you decide to hit the slopes this winter, be sure to look for a resort that offers a world-class spa and other amenities to keep you relaxed and toasty warm by the fire with an apres-ski beverage.
Be a Beach Bum
There are few things more relaxing than sitting on the beach with a book and a cold beverage. As long as there’s sun and sand, you’re sure to have a great trip!
Venture down under for a truly once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia’s pristine, world-class beaches. Of course, there’s the iconic Bondi Beach in Sydney, but there are other gems down in Aussie land that are not to be missed. On the western coast, Cape Le Grand National Park is a sight to see with several distinct beaches and bays along the rugged and picturesque coast. Whitehaven Beach on the secluded Whitsunday Island is arguably the most beautiful beach in the world with its buttery soft whitesand and crystal clear waters; its location along the Great Barrier Reef make it an excellent area for scuba diving and snorkeling.
Not interested in the 20+ hour travel time to go halfway around the world? Not a problem; the U.S. is home to some world-class beaches of its own. Florida boasts nearly 1,400 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Destin, about an hour east of Pensacola, and Clearwater Beach, just north of Tampa/St. Pete, stand out as top-notch beach destinations for families (ranked #1 and #3 among all Florida beaches). If nightlife and possible celebrity sightings are more your speed, Miami Beach cannot be beaten.
California is uniquely positioned to be both a ski destination and a beach destination — if you time your vacation correctly, you don’t have to choose between the two! Spend a few days in Lake Tahoe, hop on a one-hour flight to Los Angeles, and rest your overworked muscles in Malibu.
