Getaways near: Washington, DC

1 of 15

One of the best things about being in Washington, DC, is how close it is to everything you’re looking for in a wintertime vacation: mountain trails, hot springs, ski slopes—even whales. Seek some respite from the cold with a long soak in some presidentially approved hot springs. The Jefferson Pools at the Omni Homestead Resort—located in the aptly named Hot Springs, Virginia—flow naturally from the Allegheny Mountains. Gather a group and head for the Blue Ridge Mountains for a cabin trip. Here, your escape is what you make of it, whether you hike Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah National Park, go mountain biking or horseback riding, or hole up in one the area’s many lodges. If you’re looking for a more romantic Blue Ridge Mountain getaway, you can always spoil yourself with a stay in the foothills at the Inn at Little Washington. Though heading to the beach in the heart of winter might seem counter-intuitive, it’s actually the best time for a Virginia Beach getaway—if you’re hoping to spot some whales. The East Coast has been a little bit too warm for snow so far this winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go skiing at places like Wisp in western Maryland, Seven Springs in Pennsylvania, and Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia, among others. —Amy McKeever
