Reason #1 – Fewer Crowds

Imagine this: you’ve planned your dream trip, you’ve made all your preparations and reservations, then you get there and WAIT. Nothing kills the adventurer vibe more than a long wait or a super crowded landmark. What about all those beautiful photos of nature, wildlife, and geological formations? Somehow the images lose their luster when they’re full of people- especially total strangers.

So, if you’d prefer a bit more solitude on your sightseeing journey, then winter is a fantastic time for you to plan your trip. As we stated earlier, there are far fewer travelers on the road and in the national parks during the winter, so it’s an excellent solution for people who hope to avoid the crowds.

Okay, okay, we admit there will likely still be some crowds in certain places. After all, we’re not the first ones to come up with the idea of winter travel. You will find this especially true for those places specific to winter activities like ski resorts, but even then, there are ways around crowds. For instance, starting as early in the morning as is allowed is a sure-fire way to beat the crowds.

Another benefit of traveling in the winter is the ability to wander more freely and worrying less about making reservations for every place you go. However, being ever the cautious planner, I still advise you make reservations whenever possible and always have a plan B! Maybe even a plan C!
