The Best US States to Visit in Winter

UNITED STATES OUTLYING ISLANDS | Sunday, 14 October 2018 | Views [57]

The United States is known for its impressive scenery, which encompasses towering mountains, glittering city skylines, and soft beaches. People come from far and wide to see all it has to offer, and the winter months are no exception. As the United States is so large, seeing all it has to offer cannot be done in just one trip. Whether you wish to experience the chills of the north or the sunny evenings of the south, there is something here for everyone. To help you make the best decision for your trip, you should take note of some of the best states to visit in Winter.

New York

When people think of New York, the immediately drift to images of the New York cityscape, which takes on a whole new lease of life in the winter months. With Christmas trees adorning Times Square, and New Year’s Eve celebrations known to rival all others, it is no surprise that New York becomes such a popular destination at this time. However, there is far more to the state than bustling streets and a rich history. In fact, you can travel upstate to see the Finger Lakes region and Niagara Falls, which sometimes freezes over in particularly cold winters.


While the northern America boasts heavy snowfall during winter, southern states like California are famed for their year-round sun. Many people travel here to escape harsh weather conditions, where many beaches and natural attractions are easy to enjoy at any time of the year. As a state defined by a mountain landscape and historical redwood trees, you should spend as much time as you can exploring the wilderness.

Top Tip: If you’re planning a road trip, plan ahead with appropriate supplies, and check your route before you set off. You’ll most likely need to source a car too, so remember to rent a car before you depart.


Skiing is something that many people love to enjoy when the winter months roll around. Although locations like Aspen in Colorado have been favourites for some time, many choose to combine their ski excursions with winter hikes by heading to Washington. Among the most-loved features of the landscape are the North Cascades, which have numerous hiking routes across glacial mountains.

Don’t forget: If you wish to experience a frosty beach getaway, you should head to the shores of Olympic National Park, where some of the best Pacific sunsets can be enjoyed. City lovers will be taken in by the futuristic spires of Seattle.


As the southernmost point in the country, Florida is known for being a perpetually sunny state. Its climate can be described as tropical, with humid summers and dry, hot winters. Even better are the opportunities to see local wildlife, such as alligators. In locations like Everglades National Park, you can see marine animals come to life below your feet, but you can also enjoy coastal hikes with impressive sea views. If you are travelling with kids, then a trip to Disneyland would not go amiss, but romantic getaways are best experienced in the Florida Keys.
