20 Photos That Will Convince You Winter Is The Best Time To Travel

I know that when most people think of vacations, they almost always think of tropical beaches and warm weather.  I grew up in a snowy climate, so I get the aversion to sub-zero, I really do.  Maybe it is because I now live in the fiery inferno that is Las Vegas, but to me the snowy escapes have become some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

My husband and I recently visited Iceland in December, and the trip was amazing!  The snow made the landscapes even more peaceful and pretty.  The best part we didn’t realize was that we would have most of the tourist spots almost to ourselves.  Not only were there no crowds, but everything was cheaper.  The snow is a lot easier to enjoy when you aren’t the one that has to shovel the walkways.

Still skeptical?  Scroll through the photos below for some winter vacation inspiration!
