Snowboarding and hot chocolate are popular winter activities as it gets colder. You may want to travel somewhere warmer, but we wanted to highlight some places for winter lovers! If you’re going to be traveling with traveling healthcare agencies this winter, consider finding an assignment in one of these ten cities.
New York City, New York
There is no better place to celebrate the holidays than New York City! Skating at the ice rink in the middle of the city and looking up at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree are some of the attractions that draw people here in the winter. Christmas lights and displays decorate Fifth Avenue, where you can do your holiday shopping. Times Square is the perfect place to ring in the new year.
Colorado has an abundance of ski resorts if you enjoy skiing and snowboarding. You can even warm up inside the lodge with a cup of hot chocolate or sit in a hot tub amidst the snow. In the heart of downtown Denver, Skyline Park has an ice rink. Visit the Christkindlmarket and find some holiday cheer.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Hit some of the best slopes in the country this winter in Jackson Hole! If you like exploring national parks, take a hike through Yellowstone or Cascade Canyon. After spending the day in the mountains, Jackson Hole has tons of great places to eat. They serve generous portions to satisfy your appetite.
Park City, Utah
Park City gives you both the mountains and the city for the wintertime. It’s the happy medium between New York City and Denver, Colorado. This city is a known ski destination where you can snowboard, ski, ride a snowmobile, and even go up in a hot air balloon.
The Pacific Northwest is known for its food and coffee culture. Seattle has tons of art galleries and museums to take a walk through on those cold, rainy days. You will occasionally see snow here. In the winter, days feel shorter as it’s normally cloudy, and the sun rises and sets earlier and later. You can go on a hike or go snowshoeing in one of the national parks.
Burlington is a winter wanderlust. From small towns to ski resorts, Burlington is the most visited city in Vermont. You can find places to ski, ice skate, and snowshoe. You can even take a sleigh ride through the forest. Church Street is filled with places to eat and shop. Burlington also has tons of great breweries if you’re looking to grab a beer and warm up.
It gets really cold during the winter in Boston, so be sure to pack for this winter weather. You can find yourself skating in the Boston Common Frog Pond, walking the Freedom Trail, admiring the view from the Prudential Skywalk Observatory, and touring the Taza Chocolate Factory. You can also sail through the frigid waters in Boston Harbor.
We all know Alaska is a snowy wonderland all year round. If you’ve always wanted to see the northern lights, this is your chance! You can go dog mushing, fishing, and wildlife watching here. See reindeer up close at the Running Reindeer Ranch. Fairbanks is all around great for winter sports.
Bozeman is bursting with winter activities once the snow comes. You can go nordic and backcountry skiing, snowboard at Bridger Bowl, and explore Yellowstone National Park. If you’re not a huge fan of snow activities, you can soak in a local hot spring, visit breweries, and unwind at one of Bozeman’s spas.
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Have you ever wanted to see The Nutcracker live? This city in Michigan offers this and more entertainment, including the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and the World of Winter Festival. Ski and snowboard outside, and partake in shopping and museums inside.
