In this guide, we have compiled a list of the best winter vacation destinations in the United States. Whether you want to enjoy the winter or escape it, we have something for you.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Any time of the year, Las Vegas is the place to be and winter is no different as the party (which is Las Vegas) never really stops. However, Las Vegas isn’t solely just for gambling and day drinking – it is an age-appropriate vacation destination for both kids and adults. Another important thing to note about this city is that a good number of its tourist attractions are free. One of the popular attractions during winter in Las Vegas is the winter displays inside the Bellagio.  This city also offers museums, shows, thrill rides, gaming floors, and many more attractions.

New York City, New York

Most people don’t know that the best time to experience New York City is during winter despite the decline in temperatures. You get to enjoy seeing the large Christmas tree at Rockefeller center if you visit during the festive periods. However, hotel prices reduce after New Year’s because of the decrease in tourists – this might be a good time to visit the Big Apple. There are a bunch of shows, concerts, and exhibits you can enjoy during this period in New York.

Asheville, North Carolina

When you think about the ideal winter destination, Asheville should come to mind as it is a fantastic place to visit. Apart from the awesome cozy feel of Asheville, there are a number of things you can do to enjoy your vacation here. This city boasts of galleries, museums, concerts and a vivacious art scene. The Biltmore Estate and Wolf Ridge Ski Resort are the top tourist attractions in Asheville that you just have to visit.

New Orleans, Louisiana

If you prefer sunshine to winter, New Orleans is the best place to visit for your vacation. The vibe of this city during winter is amazing and should be experienced by everyone. Mardi Gras (a big street celebration) is very popular in New Orleans and it features parades, food, pageantry, and other events. When in New Orleans, seeing a blues/jazz show is mandatory. This city is also known for its great food and history.

Key West, Florida

Unlike other states in the US that suffer through cold during winter, the Florida Keys have pretty perfect weather during this period. It is important to note that during winter, tourists and travelers flood this city so winter is usually the most expensive time to visit. The busyness of Key West, however, means that you will enjoy top-notch activities and events.
