Holidays come once a year and things can get really dull if stuck at home for the duration of it. Most Americans specifically 25 million of them solve this problem by taking occasional winter travels which also keeps many resorts and hotels plus travel agencies happy. Lots of places are considered awesome winter getaway locations. The Caribbean offers warmer temperatures for those sick of the biting cold but there are also the winter ski hotels and resorts for people keen on enjoying the winter weather and all these are available at affordable rates via certain packages featured. Cruise lines offer special holiday rates, too.

You can find winter ski resorts all over the Stowe Vermont to Lake Tahoe area which is perfect for people who cannot get enough of the winter white sights. Possibly the most renowned ski places are found somewhere in Colorado. Close to 4000 acres in Vail are devoted to skiing which attracts many celebs during winter season. A family can ride a sleigh or dog sled or bobsled or snowmobile or helicopter ski or ski cross country or play ice hockey while there. Telluride resorts in Colorado are also fast gaining popularity among the affluent crowds.

Accommodations may include some fine hotels located in Beaver Creek with one hotel boasting of 300 rooms at an altitude of 8,100 feet and ski lifts outside its doors. Other fantastic Colorado ski resorts are located in Breckenridge, Keystone and Copper Mountain. Skiing in the West Coast is a great experience especially in northern and southern California specifically Lake Tahoe as well as Mammoth and Big Bear.

Skiers do not have to pay huge resort prices to have some winter fun. Many of the noted cross country plus downhill ski areas have nearby hostels. People cannot go wrong with the ones found in the Aspen or Taos Ski Valley or Killington or Sqaw Valley or Jackson Hole.

It will not be a real hardship to zero in on vacation spots suitable for kids. Recreational activities from building sand castles to scavenger hunts to baking cookies to flying kites are offered by most hotels in the Big Apple alongside special menus filled with food kids will enjoy including the standard peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Walland Tennessee boasts of the 70 year old Blackberry Farm right down from Smokey Mountains that has been the subject of frequent family visits. This place features mountain sunrises, woodland trails, fireside gatherings and home furnishings that recall colonial times.

The Walt Disney place in Florida is another holiday destination spot that has visitors coming year round. You will see Douglas firs lined with lights along with toy soldiers moving forward plus the elaborate parades and musical presentations. If you have a sweet tooth then you would not mind dropping by Pennsylvania Hersheypark in the Hershey region.

Much like lighted trees the whole of America is dotted with all sorts of historical twists and local flavors. Colonial American vacations can be had in the Mountain State or Virginia right in Williamsburg where the Jamestown Settlement day that took place in the 1600s is remembered each year by fathers of the city. Down in New Orleans the Yuletide season has a French feel but in Nashville one hotel favors giving it a country theme. The city lights up with special rebellion dinners at local restaurants and jazz cruises aboard the Creole Queen riverboat. A cruise is another nice way to keep the holiday mood up. The more popular cruise companies serve up great holiday destination spots.

If the shopping gene didn't kick in before the holiday, then exercise while on your winter sojourn. Many of the key cities have fancy hotels carrying special rates so it is easy to shop around even if the stores are out of town. San Francisco takes special notice of the upscale population.
