Ski or snowboard into one of these ski resort restaurants and fill up with lamb chops, bison burgers and beef tenderloins before carving up the rest of the mountain.
Although a sunny vacation in the dead of a Chicago winter seems like the incarnation of bliss, sometimes it’s nice to get away but still be near home during the holidays. You may not escape the temperatures, but you can enjoy an escape from the city with these nearby destinations.
A winter getaway doesn’t mean you have to go somewhere tropical. In fact, after the exhausting hustle and bustle of the holidays, it might just mean finding a nice quiet place to relax with great winter scenery. Plus, after the holiday spending it might not be feasible to buy a plane ticket, but you do have enough cash to find a nice place to stay for a night or two. It’s time to leave the dirty, city slush behind and take a breather.
