Vacations during the winter don’t necessarily have to be to places that are warm. I mean . . . they probably SHOULD be, but I guess they don’t have to be.
WalletHub.com just released the results of a study where they found the best WARM cities and the best COLD cities in the country for your winter vacations.
Both sets of rankings are based on things like the costs of hotels and food and the number of attractions and things to do.
Then the cold cities also factor in stuff like skiing, ice skating, and spas . . . and the warm cities factor in things like amusement parks and ice cream shops.
The five best cold cities for vacations this winter are: Chicago . . . Portland, Oregon . . . D.C. . . . Pittsburgh . . . and New York City. The worst city is Bridgeport, Connecticut.
And the five best warm cities are: Orlando . . . Las Vegas . . . San Diego . . . Austin, Texas . . . and Los Angeles. The worst is Santa Barbara, California. (WalletHub)
