While most of the world seems to enjoy hot weather, some intrepid travelers are energized by snow, brisk temperatures and blustery winds. If you seek to escape the heat or avoid the inevitable crowds and sky-high travel costs of warm-weather sites, consider a cold-weather destination for your next holiday. If slipping into a sweater with a hot coffee or liqueur sounds preferable to tropical drinks on the beach, you're in luck. Although ski resorts offer wonderful opportunities to enjoy frosty weather, or just skip to the après-ski activities, you don't have to hit the slopes to enjoy a fabulous cold-weather destination getaway. Avoid high-season prices and prevent predictability by opting for a charmingly chilly holiday. Edinburgh, Scotland Certain cityscapes are best enjoyed in the winter. Edinburgh may be famous for its summer festivals, but its craggy terrain and the medieval architecture of its Old Town district are particularly well-suited to windy, chilly days. Warm and inviting pubs beckon after a long day of touring the city. Absorbing the city's history is infinitely more pleasurable when Edinburgh's narrow Old Town streets aren't clogged with tourists. You'll also have the chance to get to know the fun-loving locals at Edinburgh's boisterous comedy clubs, pubs and restaurants. Warming up around fireplaces or  in one of the city's enchanting inns is a perfect way to end the day.

 

Banff, Alberta, Canada If you want to stray farther away but still soak up some Scottish charm, try Banff in Alberta, Canada. The town's famous Scottish castle-styled Banff Springs Hotel draws tourists from around the globe. With the stunning Tunnel Mountain as a backdrop, Banff's winter wonderland scenery will make swimsuits and suntans pale in comparison. Ski the Canadian Rockies, enjoy afternoon tea and dine on sushi, regional delicacies and other fine cuisine. Sip world-class wines and indulge in decadent spa services. After a day on the slopes or an evening of Banff nightlife, cuddle with your significant other around one of the hotel's fireplaces or electric heaters to melt away the cold.

 

New York City, USA With so many sightseeing opportunities and plenty of shopping bargains, New York City is a great place for a winter escape. Fewer tourists crowd the bustling New York streets during the cold months, and you'll find great deals on travel and accommodations. The city's hustle and bustle combine with the crisp winter air to stimulate the senses. NYC Restaurant Week will surely kick your sense of taste into high gear as you sample some of New York's best food at incredible prices. Enjoy MOMA and other great museums, sans the long queues. Cold-climate holidays offer a welcome break from the everyday. Even in the winter, a cold-weather destination loaded with personality and charm can be exciting and romantic. Whether your preferred getaway involves getting back to nature, hitting the city streets or simply unwinding in luxurious accommodations, escaping to cooler temperatures may be just what you need to relax and re-charge.
