A common reason for visiting national parks in the winter is to participate in winter sports, but often overlooked are the exciting winter festivals. Attend the Bryce Canyon Winter Festival February 16 to 18 and enjoy free clinics, demos and tours. Acadia National Park is hosting their popular Acadia Winter Festival from February 8 to 10; and don’t miss the Estes Park Winter Festival in Rocky Mountain National Park from January 19 to 20.
