Escape this Winter
Have you finalized your winter plans? Where will you go and what will you do? We hope that your plans do include some form of an escape. 2017 was a tough year with strange politics, extreme weather and more than its fair share of tragic events, so it seems fitting that we all end the year on a much higher note. We think you can use this issue of
Snowbirds and RV Travelers to plan your winter excursion to a warmer land, but if you can’t escape the cold and snow this winter, you can at least use the issue as a break from the everyday for an hour or two.
If you are dreaming of a trip that includes sun, water and sand, we have some fantastic stories on trips to Florida, California and Nevada — read about Palm Beach County, California’s Best Sand Dunes, and the History and Magic of the Grand Canyon Railway
