The USA is worth a trip at any time of the year. Here you can find which places make good travel destinations both in summer and in winter.
Many travel destinations in the USA lose their appeal as the seasons change. You can safely save yourself a city trip to New York when it’s 40 degrees Celsius or a trip to the beach when the weather is thawing. Because there are also travel destinations in the United States that are just as beautiful in summer as they are in winter. You can find out what these are here.
Vail, Colorado: Skiing and Hiking in the Rocky Mountains
In winter, Vail is a popular travel destination: the highest ski mountain in North America is part of the largest ski area in the USA. 127 runs of all levels of difficulty attract winter sports enthusiasts to the Rocky Mountains year after year. A special highlight are the so-called “Back Bowls”, huge deep snow bowls that promise a rapid descent. A mature infrastructure, including a free shuttle bus, resorts and après-ski bars make winter holidays in Vail an untroubled pleasure.
When the snow melts, the US ski resort shows its other side. Because under the white splendor, Vail is a fairytale town, complete with cobblestones and playful architecture. Take a walk through the picturesque streets, sit in a café or go on a little shopping tour through the boutiques. Nature lovers can explore Vail by mountain bike in summer and enjoy the fresh mountain air.
San Francisco: City trip with mild temperatures
“The coldest winter I’ve ever known was a summer in San Francisco,” joke San Francisco residents in the US. If you travel to the metropolis in summer, you can expect temperatures between 11 and 23 degrees Celsius: ideal weather for a city trip. Get a breath of fresh air on a ride across the Golden Gate Bridge, dare to ride the legendary San Francisco Cable Cars and discover the city’s vibrant cultural scene. You can experience all this and much more in San Francisco in winter, because it usually doesn’t get colder than five degrees Celsius in the city on the west coast.
