Calling All Snow Birds: Rest Your Wings and Drive to These Great Destinations

The holidays might be over but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be a snow bird. There’s still time to pack a bag and take a vacation yet this winter. Take part in one of the following trips and start 2020 off with adventure. Oh yeah, the best part about these migration patterns – flying isn’t required! 

National Park Winter Tour

Bindlestiiff Tours offers a three-day trip around some of the best national parks the SouthWest has to offer. Places that you’ll stop along the way include the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and Zion National Park. 

Tour the Magnificent West

If you’re not afraid to put the miles on the car, then Amadeo’s 8-day tour of the Magnificent West might be just what you’re looking for. Starting in Santa Barbara, you will work your way through memorable parts of California including walking with the stars in Los Angles, taking a bay cruise around Alcatraz Island, seeing the notorious Golden Gate Bridge, hiking through Yosemite, and more. From California, this tour heads east and goes into Arizona stopping in Las Vegas, the Hoover Dam, and Sedona, along with others before it finishes in the Valley of Fire. 

Long Weekend in New Orleans 

This is the perfect trip for all of the extended weekends that come at the beginning of the year. Travelling Time offers a 4-day sightseeing trip through this historic city for a very reasonable price. Although this tour is self-guided, it comes with a 2-day city pass that will grant you free access into the 25 best attractions of the Big Easy. 

Park City, Utah

For the rare snow birds that seek out colder temps in the winter months, look no further than Park City, Utah. Even if you don’t ski or snowboard, there are hundreds of other activities to do. There’s a reason that Park City is a world-class winter destination.  

Austin, Texas

January is the perfect time to explore Austin with lots of great events happening all around the city along with comfortable temperatures to enjoy them in. One of the best events in January happens every Saturday all month long, the Wolf Ranch Farmer’s Market. That’s right, no visit to the state of Texas would be complete without trying some of the famous BBQ found around the marketplace. While eating is a favorite activity of Texans, it’s not the only thing to do here, there are plenty of concerts, festivals, shopping, and nightlife around too.
