Best cities to visit in America this winter



Whether you’re looking for a warm winter or a true chilly winter filled with plenty of festivities then America won’t leave you feeling disappointed. America is a great place to visit during the winter months, especially as each city offers a completely different climate and overall winter experience than its neighbouring states.

For travellers looking for a warm winter

Certain parts of southern USA boast a glorious warm climate during winter although certain places will still have their cold snaps. Temperatures during the day may be considerably warm but it can turn chilly during the nights.

A state where you can guarantee mild and pleasant weather during winter is the southern region of Florida. A popular tourist hotspot and getaway destination for all the family, Florida offers visitors plenty to see and do, in addition to a whole medley of gorgeous beaches and amenities.

If you’re in search of balmy weather then San Antonia in Texas, southern California and Flagstaff in Arizona are great warm winter destinations in the US.

South Padre Island is also a great winter spot, ideal for tourists who are looking for a really relaxing winter vacation.

For travellers looking for a real winter vacation

If you’re looking for a vacation complete with cool winter weather and plenty of festivities (as the Christmas period creeps closer) then Chicago is undoubtedly the number one US city to visit in winter, especially during the Christmas holidays.

Stroll down the streets of downtown Chicago, where you will be greeted with many lovely holiday season lights and decorations. Macy’s State street department store is especially spectacular; a 50-foot Christmas tree stands tall amongst an array of charming Christmas decorations. If you are indeed popping to Chicago this Christmas then don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit the nearby Christkindlmarket, a village that recreates a German traditional market at Christmas.

Boston Massachusetts is also a great place to visit in the US during winter thanks to its rich history and cultural heritage. Even during winter, visitors can enjoy Boston’s top attractions, including talking a walk along the historic Freedom Trail, take a horse-drawn carriage or hop on a trolley tour.

Looking for a place to take the kids for winter? Stamford Connecticut offers plenty of family attractions and fun events, including Parade Spectacular and the Heights and Lights event in downtown Stamford.
