When it comes to travel, it’s pretty safe to say that the summer months are the most popular among avid travellers. The Washington Post conducted a survey asking 1,000 Americans their favourite months and the result showed that the summer months came in first while the winter months came in dead last!
It’s so common for people to travel to warmer destinations during the colder months, but what if you’re a traveller who loves to travel regardless of what season it is. Well, that’s what we’re here to dig deeper into. This article is for travellers who enjoy all seasons. In fact, this is for travellers that embrace and welcome the good, the bad, and the ugly of all seasons!
Winter: Livingston Manor, New York
Instead of going to a warm destination (like most travellers do) to escape the cold winter months, why not brave the elements of winter and go to a location where winter is truly winter? If you’ve never experienced a “true winter,” then you need to head to Livingston, New York and check out The Arnold House!
Located in the Catskills, The Arnold House is host to their annual Ice Derby which takes place on the property’s Shandalee Lake. Visitors to this wintery getaway can enjoy all aspects of comfort, relaxation, and all things country!
As far as the activities at The Arnold House, you can enjoy snowshoeing, visits to the brewery, campfires, and skiing! The rooms at this country oasis include antique furniture and vintage fixtures as well as luxury bedding and towels with a minimalistic design scheme.
Spring: Holland, Michigan
Holland, Michigan is a town that was founded by Dutch immigrants. This town hosts a big celebration in May in honour of the Dutch flower, the tulip. During this time, the town’s downtown area is covered in millions of colourful tulips.
