Winter Sites!

Hi friends! The holidays are coming closer, which means break time! Time to spend with family, time to spend with friends, time to travel. There are so many beautiful locations during the wintertime, so this post is going to be about some vacation suggestions if you’re looking for a place to go.

An incredible place to visit would be Utah. There are fantastic sites to see there–such as the Ice Castles in Midway, Utah!

This is the place where many celebrities film their videos. For example, Lindsey Stirling!

Utah also has really great Ski Resorts, such as Park City Mountain Resort and Solitude Mountain Resort. These are fun places to spend with family and friends, because of all the additional recreation activities and delicious dining areas.

Even though Utah has many winter sites, so does Finland!

The Hotel Kakslauttanen Igloo West Village provides an jaw-dropping view of the Northern lights as well as a fun experience with your friends and family living in an igloo.

Although skiing and snowboarding are fun activities, attending festivals in Asian countries are something to look forward to this time of year(:

The famous Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan and the Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival in South Korea attract thousands of tourists in the winter.

The Snow Festival, which is held for a week in February, has giant snow slides and sculptures made of snow. Tourists can enjoy the ice maze and snow sculptures made by the citizens of Sapporo. The Ice Festival in January has fishing competitions, barbecues, and wonderful ice sculptures. You can try to catch fish with your bare hands and then cook it for your friends and family!
