We are in the middle of winter, my friends. Unfortunately for most, winter leaves people wanting to do nothing but sit on their rears and hibernate. While this may sound delightful when the weather is freezing, it is not great for your mental health! This winter grab some loved ones and head on an adventure to some (or all!) of these close destinations. You’ll be so glad you did!
