This is a great question and a great thread, I always love winter threads. But what time in the winter are we talking about?

For me, I love the idea of visiting a place with snow anywhere from the week before Thanksgiving to January 2nd. After January 2nd, all the winter spirit is died down and snow seems like a burden. (In my opinion)

Believe it or not, I actually love the idea of visiting the Northeast in winter!

So my destinations would be (not including my hometown Chicago):
- Philadelphia
- Boston
- New York City
- Washington DC
- Buffalo
- Detroit

I still have to visit for the first time:
- Pittsburgh

I heard Pittsburgh is absolutely beautiful, and in winter it must be just as beautiful too. I would really love to see that place one day soon.

This is Central Park during Winter (In my opinion it looks nothing short of beautiful):

That's Interesting... I've never been to Philly around winter time (surprisingly enough), but I should definitely check it out.
I've been going into NYC during winter my whole life and it's is like no other TBH- Chicago looks amazing during the winter season, I truly want to visit there around the holidays one year.

St Thomas, US Virgin Islands. A no hassle, no passport-required destination with non-stop service from several major cities. January through March is the dry season with plenty of sun and highs in the mid 80s and lows in the low 70s. It's paradise.

Yeah St Thomas is lovely. There are some really nice beaches on the island.
Even better, take the Ferry to St John. almost the entire island is a national park, the beaches are fantastic there too

Not saying Orlando is the best but there is a lot to do this time of year between the theme parks and local events.

Orlando isnt a real city in any way. Orlando doesnt know what a real winter looks like, its an irrelevant city; what can adults do there?
