The best part of Winter is the splendor of all the snow. That's why we partnered with
Hilton for this post.
Snow bunnies, unite — it's almost the most sparkling time of year. Once the snow flies, these destinations are where to go for stunning views and the best Winter outdoor activities. It's a spectacular time of year for kicking back and taking it all in while enjoying the wonders of nature, and these spots are where to go for just that. Gawk at a frozen Niagara Falls, take a long walk through snow-dusted trees in the Birkshires, or hit the slopes of Lake Tahoe.
For the most beautiful location to ski or going for a long hike, head to
Telluride. Take a gondola ride, do a bit of shopping downtown, or just enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the view.
