Winter Holidays

There are many appealing things about traveling during the winter months. Popular attractions are devoid of summertime tourists, providing ample time to fully experience each sight. Trains are less crowded, offering travelers the opportunity to discuss the area through which they’re traveling with train staff. And, of course, the scenery is amazing! Plains and prairies blanketed with freshly fallen snow, ice-encrusted rivers and mountain peaks dressed in winter white are truly sights to behold. Visit alpine towns ripe with winter activities or escape to warmer havens to soak up the sun and forget the cold.
