Winters in the US, even if it’s cold outside, don’t mean you have to stay indoors.
Play at your own Winter Olympics – Lake Placid, New York
Whenever you watch skiers during the Olympics, have you ever wondered, “Can I do that?” . Yes, at Lake Placid, New York you can. This town has hosted the Winter Olympics twice (in 1932 and 1980), and now caters to visitors who come in search of glory for themselves.
Any fit person can run bobsled (with a professional driver) at the Olympic Sports Complex. At a place near the Olympic Center, you can pretend you’re Apolo Anton Ohno and speed skating around the oval. The center offers activities for all ages, including torch relay, ski races and hockey.
The best view of the Northern Lights – Fairbanks, Alaska
Thanks to its proximity to the North Pole, and the lack of urban lighting, this isolated area is one of the best places to visit in Aurora Borealis. The green light ribbons caused by charged particles from the sun interact with the earth’s atmosphere, and the crystal sky about 360 miles north of Anchorage, comes alive and attract many visitors (the universities here will provide forecasts to track this phenomenon).
If you are looking for guidance, book a tour with Guides. The trip departs at 10 pm from the Chena Hot Springs Resort, about 60 miles from downtown Fairbanks, Alaska. Staff set up a hot water tank, where you can warm your body after watching the light while sipping hot drinks.
