Destinations / North America

Didn’t get your fill of camping during the summer months? No worries — there are plenty of amazing camping destinations around the United States where camping can be just as enjoyable in the winter as it is in the summer.

 

Mt. Hood National Forest

Mount Hood is a popular winter destination for many and for good reason. The mountain offers loads of awesome snow sports activities, from skiing and snowboarding to sledding and snowmobiling. There are several different spots to choose from when looking for a campground open in winter, so you should be able to find one with the amenities you want in the location you desire.

 

Death Valley National Park

If you always wanted to visit Death Valley, but the heat puts you off a bit, try visiting in the winter. The temperatures are still pleasantly in the 60s, so you avoid the scorchers of the summer, and you get some chilly winter air at night. There are quite a few campgrounds within the park open in the winter, but some are limited in terms of available hookups for your electricity and water.

 

Joshua Tree National Park

Similarly, Joshua Tree National Park is a great place to camp in the winter because you not only avoid hot temperatures, you also avoid big crowds, as this park is one of the most popular in the National Park System. Wintertime still allows you to enjoy all the great hiking and vistas and horseback riding tours are available.

 

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

For a destination actually cold this winter, try Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan. Backcountry camping is available with a permit and normal campground sites are available for free during the winter. Just take note the roads aren’t plowed in many places, so plan accordingly. Enjoy the amazing winter lake views and maybe even try your hand at ice climbing.

 

Hot Springs National Park

In the South, visit the smallest national park in the United States. Hot Springs National Park gives you the chance to take a dip in one of the many natural springs, where you’ll stay toasty regardless of the weather. If you’re not quite ready to don a swimsuit this winter, try the park’s hiking trails.

The Future of Space Tourism

Space tourism grew out of fantasies and unfilled promises that seemed out of reach until nearly two decades ago. In 2001, American businessman Dennis Tito spent $20 million for almost eight days with the Russian spacecraft that orbited Earth 128 times. Other million-dollar space rides followed with wealthy space tourists over the years. But will space tourism ever become more accessible, or will it always remain a bucket list adventure for the elite?

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Cabeau Evolution Memory Foam Travel Pillow

No matter how many years of flying experience you have under your belt, some travelers still struggle to find the perfect position in which to sleep, and also may find it difficult to find the perfect accessory to aid in this attempt.
