Most people would agree that while beautiful, winter is long. In some parts of the United States, cold and unpleasant temperatures can stretch for more than half of the year.
As seasonal depression is real, staying sane during the gloomy and grey months can be a challenge.
Because of that, you might want to consider traveling. And, to help you decide on the perfect destination, we’ve put together this list of the best winter vacations for couples. All of the places mentioned below will make the trip of a lifetime.
Read on to learn about five of the best holiday getaways for couples.
1. Estes Park, Colorado
With a central location in the U.S., Colorado is relatively accessible for most people. It’s also beyond beautiful.
Located on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains, Estes Park is a cozy town nestled in the mountains. With charming shops, romantic hotels and lodges, and plenty of room for skiing (and ski storage!), Estes Park makes the perfect winter wonderland destination.
2. Fairbanks, Alaska
There’s nothing more romantic than watching the Northern Lights with your partner, and there’s arguably no better place to do that in the U.S. than in Fairbanks, Alaska.
From dog sleds and hot springs to ice fishing and starry skies, Fairbanks should be at the top of every winter lover’s travel list. But, if you ask my personal opinion, I would always suggest going to a quaint little town like Paducah KY, which is famous for its quilt making, and an event like QuiltWeek Paducah that attracts thousands of tourists from all over the US, especially from the east coast.
3. Yellowstone National Park
Most Yellowstone tourists arrive in the summer months, making winter an ideal time to visit if you’re craving some peace and quiet.
Spend your days snowshoeing, hiking, and discovering untouched natural wonders. At night, cozy up under a warm quilt by the fire with your partner.
4. Los Cabos, Mexico
While snow can be fun, some people might be after a beach vacation to break up the winter monotony. In that case, consider hopping over to Los Cabos, Mexico.
Located in Baja, California, Los Cabos combines modern, luxurious amenities with stunning natural vistas. A trip there is a vacation that’s worthy of a celebrity. (You might even see one while you’re there.)
5. Palm Beach, Florida
If you feel like staying in the good ol’ U.S. of A, Palm Beach, Florida is beautiful all year round.
While beaches and scenic spots abound, Palm Beach also has a lot of art and history. Spend your days enjoying the sun and exploring the city, all while being around the person that means the most to you.
