Winter is a wonderful time to travel with the family and have a winter family vacation. You can pick from so many destinations around North America; somewhere like Salt Lake City Utah, Vancouver Canada, or Keystone Colorado. All of these cities offer active weekend getaways that include world-class skiing/snowboarding, hiking, snowshoeing, and sledding, or you can have a lovely, relaxing, and quiet weekend building snowmen with the family while exploring the cities and shopping for Christmas.
Winter travel with loved ones
In Vancouver Canada, snow doesn't tend to fall often in the city itself, but you can still visit Vancouver and experience world-class downhill skiing and cross-country skiing. Further from the city, you can access Whistler or Blackcomb, both famous for winter vacations that focus on skiing and winter sports. If an active winter family vacation is not what you prefer, you can enjoy a weekend of eating, shopping, and general relaxing in the city of your choice.
You don't have to travel all the way to Canada to experience winter family vacations; Keystone, Colorado, and Salt Lake City, Utah, are closer to home and both have world-class skiing available. If you and your family don't enjoy skiing or such active getaways, you can hike and sled in the mountains or snowshoe and enjoy nature; many cities have beautiful day spas and resorts that offer spa services in case you and your family prefer a relaxing, not so active weekend away.
Possibly, for you and your loved ones, a winter weekend vacation doesn't entail sweat soaked activities, but rather time spent with loved ones, reading books, or playing in the snow. Winter is a wonderful time to catch up with family and friends over a good meal and a bottle of wine, regardless of chosen activities.
