There are two types of winter travelers: those who flee cold weather and those who flock to it. There are plenty of destinations across the country to suit both the cold-lovers and the cold-haters. It is easy to have a love/hate relationship with winter, it’s unpredictable, and cold. But some of the coldest places, with the most snowfall provide the perfect winter vacation in the United States. Us, we are winter lovers. We flock to the snow to ski, hike, relax, and chill with our family.
