Don’t want to stay home for the winter? Check out these top three vacation spots. The first is the Aurora Winter Train ride on the Alaskan Railroad, with excursions on weekends and occasionally midweek. The Aurora Winter Train travels from Anchorage to Fairbanks in about 12 hours, and includes stops to Talkeetna and Wasilla. Take a chance and experience the winter wonderland that is Alaska.
A visit to New York is another great option, but don't get it mixed up with New York City. Upstate New York has many winter resorts that let you have fun in the snow. I know what you're thinking. Why spend money to go somewhere and play in the snow when I can stay home? Although you may have a point, the real question is why not? A great winter getaway for the whole family would be the Hull-O family Farm Vacations, where families can all participate in farm chores. These chores can include milking cows, feeding the pigs, and much more.
Last, but certainly not least, is San Antonio, Texas. This city hosts many events at their Main Plaza, but one of the biggest attractions is the twenty four minute San Fernando Cathedral Laser Light Show.There are many other places to visit in Texas, too, such as Dallas, Austin, or El Paso. Winter is also the perfect time to visit the diverse natural landscapes this state has to offer, or to just enjoy the warm weather.
All of these places are affordable and make wonderful winter getaway for families. Why not try one out?
