Best Winter Attractions Across USA
Winter travel to the United States has several advantages. The humidity has fallen in almost every city, making the temperature comfortable and keeping the mosquitoes away. Ridership in the tourist areas is decreasing significantly, as are hotel rates. I love to travel outside of tourist periods.
Now that the start of the school year has passed and the autumn is well in place, many people are dreaming of their next trip to the United States. This year, I spoke to seasoned snowbirds to learn about the best cities in the United States to visit in winter. While most of them swear by the Florida classics (Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Fort Myers, etc.), I’ve decided to introduce you to some unexpected cities.
Charleston, South Carolina
A friend of my mothers fell in love with Charleston in South Carolina, a little-known city where history and architecture intertwine to the delight of tourists. In the 1670s, the economy of Charleston was based on rice and cotton plantations, followed by the slave trade. It is possible to visit former slave markets to learn more about this abolished business. It would also be possible to visit a gigantic neoclassical-style mansion, The Nathaniel Russell House, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the lives of the affluent families of the 19th century. The historical and culinary attractions of this beautiful city are undoubtedly worth a visit.
My uncle, a golf fan, loves to visit Phoenix in the winter to walk the golf courses. To this end, he points out that some clubs, including the Troon North and the We-Ko-Pa, have desert landscapes that give the impression of being hundreds of kilometers away from civilization. My aunt, on the other hand, likes to go there for spas, shopping, warm and comfortable temperatures as well as walking trails. They indicate that in February, the desert area is in full bloom. At sunset, the colors of the cactus and other plants are spectacular.
San Francisco, California
In my opinion, San Francisco is the most beautiful city in the United States, and that’s why I’m talking about it. The unique, Victorian, and unique character of the town is particularly attractive. It is imperative that you use the cable cars to go up and down the hills of this winding city and to contemplate the Victorian houses of the well-known Lombard Street. Fisherman’s Wharf docks are a must, especially at Pier 39 where restaurants, museums, an aquarium, and other attractions are concentrated. From Fisherman’s Wharf, you have an unobstructed view of the island of Alcatraz, former federal prison. Finally, San Francisco offers many venues, museums, restaurants, and ethnic neighborhoods.
Medical care in the United States is costly, so it is essential to purchasing travel insurance when you travel to the United States. This must cover all costs related to an urgent medical situation.
