Booking a vacation rental can be a cost effective option for a vacation. As our friends at HomeEscape suggest, you can find some of the best deals during this time of the year when vacation rentals are priced more affordably and rental managers are more amenable to shorter stays.
The advantages of vacation rentals are they offer all of the comforts of home at a fraction of the price of hotels. Plus, vacation rental homes are ideal for families or large groups – meals can be made on-site, children can enjoy amenities like private pools and backyards, and families do not have to worry about high-priced activities draining their travel budget.
Here Are The HomeEscapes Suggestions For The Top Destinations For Travel and Vacation Rentals:
1. Breckenridge, Colorado
Not only is Breckenridge considered one of the best winter vacations in America for its world-class skiing, this down-to-earth city is also home to the enchanting International Snow Sculpture Championship. Otherwise, travelers can enjoy epic skiing and snowboarding with plenty of family-friendly terrains.
2. Saint Paul, Minnesota
Saint Paul is an excellent, family-friendly winter destination. From the kid-friendly Winter Carnival, which lasts two weeks and features more than four dozen events and attractions, to the beautiful outdoor skating and sledding down the beautiful hills of the city, Saint Paul is one of the rare winter getaways certain to keep everyone amused.
3. Sun Valley, Idaho
Sun Valley comes alive every winter when fresh snow carpets the ground and skiers and snowboarders flock to this amazing resort town. Travelers can ski by day, soothe sore muscles in their private spa or sit by a roaring fire at home in their Sun Valley chalet.
4. Baltimore, Maryland
Looking to have fun in the city, but don’t want the arctic chill of the northernmost cities? Baltimore is the perfect place for vacationers who want to explore, without the cold. For those feeling brave, take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean during the Polar Bear Plunge – Maryland’s chilly tradition. Make sure to have somebody nearby ready to wrap you in a warm towel.
5. South Lake Tahoe, California
Days in South Lake Tahoe are defined by ski runs at Heavenly, snowshoeing in the Lake Tahoe basin, and, if travelers visit in March, attending the North Lake Tahoe Snowfest. This boisterous 10-day festival includes fun events like beach parades and polar bear swims with fun for all ages both on and off the mountain. After the fun activities, travelers can take full advantage of the amazing ski terrain at nearby Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley.
