Is it freezing out? Yup. Is it tempting to stay put at home where it’s warm and cozy? Yup. Is that going to stop you from planning a road trip this winter? Nope.
In fact, with so much wintry stuff to do and so many wintry places to go, there’s no better time to hit the road with family or friends and get away from it all. And whether you’re looking for rest and relaxation or something a little more adventurous, there’s plenty for everyone out there.
You’re just a 15-passenger van rental away from finding it all.
Here are some winter road trips worthy of consideration.
Looking for quaint?
Try New Canaan, CT.
It’s less than 3 hours from Philly. It’s big on old-world charm. And for anyone remotely interested in history and culture, it’s a goldmine.
From mid-century house museums to art galleries to hundreds of acres of gardens, woods, and fields, New Canaan packs in more than its share of points of interest.
Into modern architecture? Check out the River building at Grace Farms. Want to go for a winter stroll? Take a River Walk & Tea tour through five commissioned art installations. Up for a winter hike? Explore the trails around New Canaan Land Trust.
It’s all right here. And it all makes for a memorable stay.
Seeking a sea breeze?
Head to Asbury Park, NJ.
While Asbury Park may be widely known for its summertime revelry, the winter months have plenty to offer off-season road trippers.
Legendary bars like the Stone Pony, elegant hotels like Beaux Arts Berkeley Hotel and annual holiday bazaars and open-air markets all offer plenty to enjoy and celebrate right off the boardwalk. There’s even a pan-seasonal oceanside stage that’s been hosting big-time bands since 1974.
Whatever your seaside goals, there’s something for everyone on the Jersey Shore this winter.
Want something sweet?
Set out for Hershey, PA
Though its namesake amusement park may be closed for the season, “The Sweetest Place on Earth” offers up quite the winter wonderland.
From spas to museums to local hockey games, there’s no shortage of fun things to do and fun stuff to see in Hershey.
The best part? It’s all right next door.
