Best Winter Vacation Spots for Kids

Winter break is almost here--rejoice! Whether you’re looking to escape (or embrace) the snow this season, we have some popular destinations in mind that we know your family will love.


From national parks to the Big Apple, here are some of the best winter vacation spots for kids.


Yellowstone National Park


Headed towards snow this winter season? Yellowstone National Park has plenty of it! Discover the wildlife that roams the land while aboard a warm and cozy Scenic Safaris snowcoach tour. Kids will also love all the holiday activities happening in nearby Jackson Hole.


Where to Stay: Signal Mountain Lodge


What to Do: Snowmobile, sightsee, ski, snowshoe, dog sled, or take a wildlife or snowcoach tour, etc.

Northern Arizona


Northern Arizona is the perfect escape for families of all ages. Start a new holiday tradition this year by visiting the North Pole in Flagstaff, witnessing the Northern Lights in Sedona, and catching a glimpse of the Grand Canyon at sunset. The best part? Winters are generally pretty mild in Arizona compared to other northern states, so you won’t freeze the second you step outside!


Where to Stay: Mormon Lake Lodge (30 miles south of Flagstaff)


What to Do: Attend holiday festivities in nearby towns, snow sled, cross country ski, snowshoe, snowmobile, tree-to-tree adventure course, etc.

New York City


Visiting New York City around the holidays is a timeless tradition. From ice skating in Central Park to attending a live holiday performance at Radio City Music Hall, the Big Apple is simply the most magical place to be in the winter time.


Where to Stay: Omni Berkshire Place


What to Do: Attend live performances, see Dyker Heights holiday lights, take a picture next to the giant holiday décor around the city, marvel at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, and so much more!
