Best deals for travelers — or people who'd prefer to stay home
We all cope with winter in different ways.
Some of us embrace the cold weather with outdoor adventures like skiing, hiking, camping. Some of us prefer to hide indoors, cultivating the coziest possible environment while we wait for warmer days. Others of us are just looking for ways to keep our kids -- and ourselves -- occupied.
Whether you're planning a wintertime excursion with the family, you're working on your New Year's resolutions, or you're settling in with a cup of cocoa (or a glass of mulled wine) to binge Netflix until spring -- you need the right gear to make the most of this time of year.
