Ahhh, winter, at first you have the nostalgic excitement of the first snowfall accompanied by a warm mug of hot chocolate and perhaps a crackling fire in your fireplace all the while sitting in your couch with a good comedy on the television.  But unfortunately we all have to make a living so our perception of winter becomes more like one having to scrape the snow off of the car windows, or waiting in traffic with the heater all the way up all the while listening to some disc jockey who’s sitting in a warm and cozy studio, or the worst yet to have to get out of that warm and cozy bed and deal with below freezing temperatures.  Herein you will find some good tips on what to do during your winter vacation and also cure those wintertime blues.

First off if you’re willing to embrace winter’s chilly winds and snows, there’s no better thing to do than to ski or snowboard.   The sport itself is very invigorating and the exercise in itself is wonderful for your health.

Although considered a high end sport many dive resorts and dive centers scuba diving are advertising all inclusive dive vacation.   This will include all your dive gears, reef fees, tanks and transportation to your dive sites, food and room.  Take that extra time to check for these inclusion in the dive packages being offered by these centers and resorts.

So whether you hit the slopes or hit the beaches make sure to take full advantage of the recreational activities offered in your destination and get and stay healthy while your enjoying your next winter vacation.
