Americans love to travel. Whether it’s domestically, abroad or on a cruise we make up the vast majority of the global travel business and so it’s no surprise that we’ve been chomping at the bit to get back out there. Since the dawn of the age of Covid, we’ve experienced so many challenges getting back to what we enjoy doing the most – and also, being able to help the communities that so rely on our tourist dollars.

Now with the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus threatening to once again shackle our travel plans, we decided that it might be time to look at ways that you can still get your travel fix, support your local tourism industry, and end the year on a high – without having to pack your passport.

The great part of traveling within America this winter is that we’re truly spoiled for choice when it comes to options. From skiing and snowboarding to escaping the cold for the beaches of Florida or California you can end this year on a high and if you’re budget-conscious, there’s even some good news for you.

Now, we do have to add that if you’re planning on interstate travel this vacation, make sure that you check local regulations before you book your ticket as the Coronavirus is still having something of an impact on certain options.

JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING

A national treasure, you’ll be blessed with more than 500 inches of snowfall every year. The ski slopes have long attracted lovers of the sport or those who just can’t get enough of the white stuff! You’ll enjoy horse-drawn sleigh rides, backcountry skiing, and snow coach tours besides.

ST. GEORGE, UTAH

Just a four-hour scenic drive from Salt Lake City, St George offers a milder alternative to the winter fun of the state. The desert climate here has daytime temperatures in the 50s with cooler nights, so do pack some warm gear. The town itself boasts galleries and museums, fabulous restaurants, and quaint cafes. The Zion National Park is a short journey away and is open all year with some of the best hiking and mountain biking trails in the United States.

PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA

Two hours east of the City of Angeles, this city in the desert is blessed with comfortable daytime temperatures in winter which makes enjoying its gorgeous golf courses, spas, and casinos an absolute pleasure.

Don’t forget the hot springs of course and the Aerial Tramway provides a fun ride along with some spectacular views. Joshua Tree National Park is also less than two hours away and boasts extraordinary rock formations and starry night skies.

KEY WEST, FLORIDA

Four hours from Miami, the trip takes visitors over 42 bridges to the most southern point of Florida. Winter temperatures hover in the 70s and rich and interesting history combine with water sports, coral reefs, and fabulous nighttime entertainment.

Key West is all yours if the cold is simply not an option, and you should check out AmericanOtels.com to find amazing deals on trips to the Island and all over the United States this winter.

Stay safe, have fun – and happy holidays!
