This New England Destination Is A Great December Vacation
December is often a month of heavy travel to take holiday trips, to visit a festive landmark, friends or family. However, Fifty Grande recently published the best places to go in December for a relaxing vacation, and a New England location made the list.
“There are more than enough climate zones and far-flung destinations to accommodate every Scrooge, snow bunny and family dinner flight risk,” Fifty Grande states.
At this point, most travelers have already made December plans and have tickets in hand for any major trips. Nonetheless, the spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment escape is still increasingly popular. What do you look for when the thrill of a quick getaway calls? Ideally, you are heading to a place of ultimate relaxation. In fact, often, the climate of the place you seek is the opposite of what you are experiencing at home. Therefore, you need a place that offers that variety but is still close enough that you don’t have to spend two of the days wrapped up in traveling.
This Fifty Grande report showcases how America has many outstanding options of places like New England that will do that trick for those looking for a quick December vacation. There are snow-covered places (like Colorado) for those who want a jump on the ski season. Then, there are sunny beaches where you can sip frozen island drinks to completely unwind before you turn the calendar to a new year.
In New England, It’s Stowe, Vermont
This region of northern Vermont is obviously well-known for its tremendous skiing. However, resorts like the Lodge at Spruce Peak also offer a wide range of amenities, like a state-of-the-art spa with a pool. In addition to some of the best downhill skiing on the East Coast, Stowe offers cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and tubing options. Of course, the ski conditions rely on the winter weather you get in December. That’s if you prefer to leave your resort of choice.
The food options in Stowe are also great. There’s maple-covered everything, steakhouses, pizzerias, and hometown bakeries. If you need another reason to make Stowe your New England December vacation spot, there are also great breweries in town. For example, Idletyme Brewing, von Trapp Brewing, and the Alchemist are all in close proximity to each other.
