We love New England in the winter. There’s always an abundance of things to do. If you need help figuring out a fun family getaway, here are a few of our top picks:
Visit Stowe, Vermont
Stowe, Vermont is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country and for good reason. It’s not only home to some of the best ski and snowboard mountains in the East, but it’s full of family friendly accommodations that will keep you coming back year after year. We love The Lodge At Spruce Peak and the Trapp Family Lodge.
Waterparks Worth The Visit
If you just aren’t ready to say goodbye to summer, there are a couple of great indoor water parks we love. The Pump House Indoor Waterpark at Jay Peak is perfect for families that want that want both summer and winter fun. You can ski in the morning and then have fun in the waterpark in the afternoon. You also can’t go wrong with Great Wolf Lodge. The options for family fun extend way beyond its indoor water park.
If your family is on the more adventurous side, we have a couple of great options for you. Maine Forest Yurts are open year-round and are just steps away from adventures in cross-country skiing, ice skating & snowshoeing. Have you ever been snow tubing? Take a trip to Loon Mountain in New Hampshire and your family will find itself in for a treat. Pair that with the state’s longest gondola ride and you’ll want to come back in summertime too.
