Scenic Road Trip Destinations You Can Take this Winter

scenic winter

The annual migration of winter vacationers to the world-class ski resorts in the California’s Sierra Nevada and the Colorado Rockies is bound to keep highways busy. Although winter is a good time for “cocooning,” the months between November and March represent one of the heaviest road trip times of the year. Some travelers are on the road to warmer climes while others are headed for winter playgrounds. For your convenience, we’ve listed 3 of the most popular scenic road trip destinations you and your family can take this winter.

 

mt rainierAshford, WA – Mt. Rainier National Park

 

Hidden amongst towering fir and cedar trees at the foothills of Mt. Rainier National Park, Ashford is a popular destination for those venturing deep into the Cascade Mountain Region of Central Washington. Mt. Rainier National Park is a popular place to enjoy winter activities. The mountain receives abundant snowfall and the scenery is spectacular. In winter, recreational opportunities are numerous. A winter visit to Mt. Rainier can include ranger-guided snowshoe walks, Paradise snowplay, camping, snowboarding, and skiing. Adjacent to Ashford you’ll find the small town of Elbe, where you can board the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad, which is by far one of most relaxed ways to take in the secluded backcountry of Mt. Rainier National Park.

 

wellsboro paNorth Central Pennsylvania – Wellsboro

 

Located along scenic Route 6 in North Central Pennsylvania, Wellsboro and the surrounding area offers a unique vacation beginning with a natural wonder over six-million-years-old. Also known as the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, this breathtaking terrain is the result of melting prehistoric ice glaciers. Undoubtedly, a great road trip destination as every winter, traffic on Wellsboro’s Main Street is halted as the town thoroughfare is magically transformed into a remarkable Victorian market.  The Wellsboro Dickens of A Christmas showcases an impressive collection of theatre, music, history, shopping, and food.

 

oregon coastOregon Coast

 

Most travelers tend to overlook the Oregon Coast during winter, contemplating only the snow-capped Cascades and the high, dry deserts beyond. But did you know that the Oregon Coast’s cities and towns save some of their best festivals for winter when the weather is sometimes rough but the provisions and company remain superb. Winter festivals take place along the length of the Oregon Coast, offering up food, music, natural treasures and hospitality. Just take the Oregon Truffle Festival as an example. The festival includes the truffle talent of local chefs with special meals and wine pairings as well as tastings, cooking classes, and demonstrations. This festival itself is worth traveling for!

 

Nothing is more freeing than the open road! For generations, travelers have enjoyed the wind in their hair traveling from one destination to another seeking romance and adventure. Hop in that rental car, pick a destination, and you’re in for a memorable road trip.

Thanksgiving Travel 2015: What to Look for this Year

flight

Are you one of the millions of people who plan on traveling over this Thanksgiving holiday? Think it is too early to plan? Think again. Start planning now for the busiest travel season of the year and find yourself having a hassle-free trip that will also keep your wallet fat. Along with a big dose of patience, use these tips to help put a successful Thanksgiving travel plan in place.

 

1. Research the Best Travel Deals Now

Getting a good rate for your Thanksgiving Day airfare requires booking tickets early: to get the best rates on the best airline, it is essential to know how the airline industry really works. To secure the very best airfare possible, do your research now. If you do this early on, you can save hundreds of dollars. Book your flights now! This is the last week before airline ticket prices begin to rise due to surging demand.  Use Hipmunk to find some great travel deals.

2. Flexibility

One must always be prepared to make changes to plans. The more flexible you are on your departure and arrival dates for your Thanksgiving holidays, the better the deal you will get. In fact, if your schedule permits, why not travel a few days before or a few days after Thanksgiving? This is usually less crowded and stressful. Another advantage of reserving your Thanksgiving flight early is it will likely cost considerably less because you won’t be traveling during peak travel days.

 

3. Timing is Everything

The busier the airport, the more time you need to allow to get to there and make it through the long lines. This very well means that you have to leave your house earlier than you normally would. It is important to remember that during this holiday break, there are thousands of others just like you that are making their way to the airport, so traffic is bound to be congested. It’s ideal to arrive at the airport with at least two hours to spare before your flight is scheduled to depart. Prepare in advance if flight delays and cancellations are likely due to inclement weather or other issues with travel insurance.

4. Check-In

Given that it is the busiest day travel day of the year, airline schedules do get routinely shifted on Thanksgiving Day. Call ahead or check your airline’s website an hour or so before embarking on your journey. You could save yourself hours of time wasted waiting at the airport. If you’ve never printed your boarding pass and checked in to your flight online before, now might be the ideal time to give it a go because it will save you lots of time and aggravation.  Most airlines now provide mobile apps that make this process seamless.  One popular app is the Delta Airlines app.

 

5. Road Trips

If you’re driving, make sure you are prepared before heading out. Check your vehicle’s fluid levels, oil, brakes, and radiator. Check all of the hoses. If any are frayed, cracked, mushy or leaking, have them replaced. If accessible, squeeze the hose. For safety bring a cell phone and road map. Thanksgiving travel can be tedious, especially for kids so bring something to pass the time like movies, tablets, and coloring books. If you’re renting a car at your destination, rental car insurance will save you money if an unexpected accident occurs.
