As the beloved Lord Eddard Stark would say – winter is coming. Well, winter is already here, but we are still waiting on snow and all the wonders it brings.
If you have a family and you’re planning a winter holiday for you and your loved ones, you’ve come to the right place. Today we are going to talk about the perfect family winter holidays you should consider. Here they are.
Explore The Wonderful French Alps
If you’re looking to enjoy a winter holiday in Europe, you should definitely consider renting a log cabin in the French Alps and exploring those beautiful mountains with your loved ones. This is the most idyllic winter holiday you can plan if you love cold weather and snow. During the day, you can hike and enjoy the breathtaking views. In the evening, you can enjoy the cosy ambience of a mountain cabin. There aren’t too many things that are as beautiful as sitting next to a crackling fire in a cabin with your family.
Visit New York
In case you are looking for a more urban winter holiday, there’s no better place than the Big Apple. It’s safe to say that New York is famous for having one of the most beautiful Christmas ambients in the world. Simply visiting the Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree will take your breath away. If you love Christmas window displays, you should definitely go to the nearby Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue where you will find wonderful displays honouring this holiest of seasons. When it comes to the accommodation, you can stay at 1 Hotel Central Park or at Standard Hotel located in East Village. Both of these options are affordable and comfortable.
If you’re looking for a winter holiday that is a combination of the two previous suggestions, then you simply have to visit the mountain town called Breckenridge. Located in Colorado, this adorable ski town is affectionately known as Breck. It has plenty of slope-side lodges, ski-to-town trails, and the BreckConnect Gondola. This means you can easily go to the town’s centre without taking off your skis.
In case you visit this town in January, make sure to go to the International Snow Sculpture Championships. Also, the nightly Nordic Snowcat Adventures and Cucumber Gulch wildlife will provide you with the fairytale winter holiday.
Most people who have lodged in this town recommend the Residence Inn Breckenridge. It’s near the ski resort and it’s close to the historic downtown.
