Winter is most definitely upon us (well, here in the Northern Hemisphere), which got us to thinking: where do you like to travel when it’s cold? Some destinations are more appealing when the weather turns frigid; Venice comes to mind, mostly because in the wintertime, it doesn’t smell quite so fishy.
Beyond that, there are the usual skiing spots, from Vail to Chamonix to Stowe. In many of these places, there’s plenty to do for the non-skier too (phew! we’re in that category), including dog-sledding, snow-shoeing and hiking, if those are your jam.
Finally, some cities just look better in the winter, like Prague, Stockholm and Boston. It’s hard to beat a fresh blanket of snow in these spots.
Leave your favorite wintertime destinations in the comments.

Let's not forget Alaska! Few places like it in the world, especially in the winter.
