10 Inexpensive Winter Travel Ideas – J.D. Power
Whether you’re traveling in the continental US or abroad, here are 10 destinations that will fit most any travel budget. Prices drop dramatically after the New Year, and Manhattan has mild winters, with more rain than snow.
- Thailand. The rainy season ends by October, and in the winter months it’s still warm enough to enjoy shopping, sightseeing, sports, and Thai hospitality.
- Egypt. Crowds and pollution are less of a factor in the winter months, and the pyramids and other historical sites are still just as accessible.
- Italy. If you’re visiting Italy for the culture, you’ll find that the museums, galleries, and musical venues are less expensive and less crowded in the winter–and the weather is usually mild. The Italian Alps are a good alternative for skiing.
- London. One of the two best cities in the world for theatre; prices are lower in winter; crowds are smaller; and it doesn’t get as cold as in most of the U.S.
- Buenos Aires. It’s summer, south of the Equator, and prices are low in this vibrant cosmopolitan city while the locals escape to the countryside.
IN THE U.S.
- New York City. Prices drop dramatically after the New Year, and Manhattan has mild winters, with more rain than snow.
- Las Vegas. You don’t have to walk the Strip in the hot summer sun. Nights are cold, but daytime temperatures are delightful–and hotel rates drop after the Consumer Electronics Show in mid-January.
