Winter Road Trip Ideas

Just because it's winter, doesn't mean you can't take a vacation this time of year. There are plenty of friends and families that get together in Eugene, OR, and hit the road for a getaway. Whether you choose to escape the cold or not, here are some fun ideas or places to take your next winter road trip:

  • Hit the Slopes - Whether you venture out to Colorado or Utah or stay within Oregon, you can still have a dreamy ski vacation with your loved ones. If you want to be a little more advanced, trade in the skis for a snowboard and test out those skills. Road tripping to a ski resort is perfect for families, couples, and friends.
  • Winter Hike - If you're into great winter scenery, a hike may be just right for you. There are plenty of trails in Eugene, but you can also venture out to some remarkable trails along the Rocky mountains. 
  • Rent a Cabin - Not much of an outdoorsy person? You can still enjoy nature and escape from your everyday life by booking a cozy stay in a cabin. We're sure you'll find some glamorous options on Airbnb or VRBO. 
  • Attend a Winter Festival - If you're down for a celebration and a good time, you can take a road trip to a nearby winter festival. You may find yourself enjoying great food and drinks and trying new, unexpected winter activities. 

Before you head out on the road this winter, please be sure you pack an emergency kit with you along for the ride. The harsh winter conditions can present your car with a handful of trouble, and you'll have to deal with a major headache if you don't come prepared. More importantly, you should winterize your vehicle before going on any road trip this time of year.
