Typically considered winter destinations, mountain towns are most famous for their snowy slopes, remote cabins and hot chocolate. It’s not hard to see why we think of them as cold weather spots, but those looking for a warm weather getaway should give these towns a second look.
Instead of taking the typical summer trip to a crowded beach, consider a vacation that might be a bit easier on your wallet. The same places that charge a premium for slope side accommodations in the colder months usually offer great deals in the summer—and there’s no shortage of things to do.
This summer, ditch the beach and head to one of these mountain towns for an unbelievable getaway.
