Our Final Word
There are so many places to enjoy winter in the US. Besides the cities listed above, we love now going to our cabin in the mountains of North Carolina where we can get to the Blue Ridge Parkway in a short distance and play in the snow. My home state of Pennsylvania has traditionally always had a white Christmas but has changed over the last few years and typically hasn’t been getting snow until January. We also spent a magical winter in Yellowstone among the wolves and snow-laden bison. But we understand that not all people love the snow and as we live in Florida it is one of the reasons that people flock here during the winter. Whatever your wishes are for a winter holiday, you can find a city in the US to meet your holiday expectations.
