Make Your Next Family Vacation a Trip to a Beautiful Winter Park

last minute vacationIf you’re the type of person to feel down and out every few months because you’re fed up with work and need a break, don’t just wait for those negative feelings to pass on their own. Get up and do something about it.

With the right planning, you can quickly save up enough money for a quick weekend getaway or family vacation. If you start saving right now, you’ll be all set for the perfect winter vacation in no time. You’ve always been envious of those people who go on spontaneous and exciting trips while you toil away at work. Well, it’s time that you do the same!

Some vacations cost a fortune and just aren’t worth it. You might have fun for those two days that you can afford, but once you’re back in the real world you’re probably going to stress out even more because of your post-vacation financial troubles. You don’t have to break the bank to have an amazing vacation — you just have to know where to go.

Family vacations are the number one activity a family can do for happiness, as roughly 37% of families agree that these trips really do make them happy. Approximately 61% of pleasure trips happen in the winter because of all the seasonal savings, so don’t just run off to the hottest area you can find and get sun poisoning. Take a look at some snowy vacations, first. You won’t be disappointed.

Winter Park

How about a last minute vacation trip to an amazing winter park? It’s a great last minute vacation option that is both fun for the entire family and doesn’t cost nearly as much as those expensive — and often boring and repetitive — beach vacations. There are so many things that you and the whole family can enjoy.

  • Skiing – Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, skiing can be a lot of fun for the entire family. There is nothing more fun than gliding down a snowy mountain as you watch your dad struggle to keep his feet straight. Don’t go too hard on him, but you should definitely have a laugh. Over 13.5 million people in the U.S. have skied at least once in 2015.
  • Snowboarding – Approximately 7.7 million people went snowboarding last year, and you can too if you take a trip to a winter park. It’s a difficult sport to pick up, but once you do, you’ll have a blast on the slopes. If you think dad struggled on those skis, just wait until he tries to get on a board.
  • Dog Sled Rides – Luckily, if you’re not the skiing and snowboarding type, there are still plenty of extremely fun things you and your family can do together. Dog sledding rides will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced and can be a great way to bond with your family.
  • Bungee Jumping – Bungee jumping, if you’re brave enough to do it, is an amazing thrill during the summer. But bungee jumping in the winter is an experience that not many people can say they did. Rather than jumping down toward a lake or a pond, you’ll see the entire landscape of a winter paradise as you drop and then bungee back up.

These are just a few of the fun things you and your family can enjoy when you decide to embark on a last minute vacation to a winter paradise. Contact Access Winter Park to check out cabins and condos at a beautiful winter park today!
