Like it or not, winter is on its way. For some, it’s a time to seek thrills on mountain slopes or to enjoy the peace and quiet of a snowy trail in the woods. For others, it’s a reason to stay indoors as much as possible.
Regardless of which winter outlook you have, you may find what you’re looking for in the mountains. Expedia has compiled a list of the 17 coziest mountain towns in America, and while as expected, many include a winter playground for outdoor types, some also offer lodges with warm fire places, shopping, great restaurants and historical sites to visit.
Though New York can boast many winter destinations in the Adirondacks and the Catskills, only one community, Lake George, was included on Expedia’s list. Attractions that help the town stand out include ice fishing, sledding in Battlefield Park and ice skating on the outdoor ice rink near Lake George High School. Places to visit for the indoor set include The Log Jam Restaurant and Inn at Erlowest.
