Winter Getaways

It might be winter, but that is all the more reason to explore different areas of our beautiful country than you would in the summer when spending lazy days on the beach or next to a pool or river is top priority. Getting cozy next to a fireplace with a glass of red wine is something to look forward to over the coming months. Here is a list of suggested getaways compiled by Getaway magazine if you’re looking for some inspiration. I have stayed at 2 on the list. How many can you tick by the end of winter?
