Hawaii

Virginia

Virginia is for Lovers, state motto and welcome sign

Virginia is for lovers — and its winters are beloved by Travelers! Check into a cozy cabin, hit the slopes, or visit one of the state’s 230+ wineries to get that warm, fuzzy feeling. For some winter wildlife, check out the adorable harbor seals at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Explore Virginia’s rich history at First Landing State Park (where the Jamestown colonists landed in 1607) and historic Jamestown, Mount Vernon, Wilderness Road State Park, and Colonial Williamsburg. Warm up and chill out at the famous Jefferson Pools — naturally occurring hot springs famous for the fact that Thomas Jefferson visited in 1818 and loved them so much he didn’t leave for three weeks straight!

Shopping, pro sports, museums, history, and dining are all on point in this great state as well!

Arizona

Horseshoe Bend (Arizona)

The Grand Canyon State is a super popular destination for wintertime Travel Nursing due to its abundant natural beauty and mild winters. It also helps that a shifting population of sunbirds, among other things, means a high inventory of awesome job opportunities. One of the nation’s most marvelous sights, The Grand Canyon, is a huge draw year-round, and there’s plenty more to see and do in this southwestern state. Explore Horseshoe Bend, Red Rock Scenic Canyon, and Desert Botanical Garden. Plus, even though it does remain mild in winter, Arizona offers skiers plenty to do in the snowy peaks of Flagstaff’s Snowbowl.

New York

The colder months are a great time to take a bite out of the Big Apple. Exploring incredible art museums, taking in a Broadway show, and warming up with world-class cuisine, are just a few reasons why New York is a fabulous place to embrace the winter season. If you want to get outdoors, lace up for an adventure at one of the city’s seasonal ice-skating rinks, including those hosted in Bryant Park, Van Cortland Park, and Central Park — all of which are also great choices for grabbing a thermos full of warm drink and going on a winter wonderland walk.

Colorado

Colorado Ski

If you love winter and want to indulge in all of its snowy glory, Colorado is a fabulous choice for a winter location. The state is well-known for some of the nation’s best skiing in spots like Vail, Aspen, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Telluride, and Steamboat Springs. You can also hit the slopes on a snowboard or tube, or — my personal favorite — stay in the lodge and sip spiked cocoa all day! Winter carnivals are a good way to heat things up, from Steamboat Springs’ 104-year-old Winter Carnival to Breckenridge’s Ullr Fest. Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, and other city centers offer great art, exciting culture, delicious food, and more urban delights year-round.
