The U.S. News & World Report's "20 Best Winter Vacations" rankings were released in October, and, at No. 20, Park City made a list that was dominated by warmer climates.
This is not the first time Park City has made a list of attractive places to travel. Park City was also ranked No. 2 for "Best Ski Destinations in the USA," No. 4 in "Best Ski Destinations" and No. 4 in "Best Small Towns to Visit in the USA." The lists were produced by U.S. News.
U.S. News cited the quality of Park City's skiing and snowboarding, as well as the Sundance Film Festival, as reasons for visiting Park City during the winter. U.S. News also praised how sites such as Deer Valley Resort, Park City Resort and Historic Main Street were all "easily accessible."
Park City was listed as part of a world-class lineup, with other destinations such as Dubai, Serengeti National Park and Taipei included. Dubai came in at No. 2, Serengeti National Park at No. 8 and Taipei at No. 12.
A lot of the travel spots on the Best Winter Vacations list can be fairly expensive. For those who are on a tighter budget, there are ways to save on travel.
In January, The New York Times shared "Eight Ways to Save on Travel in 2017," with tips that can be a huge help for those looking to shave dollars off travel expenses.Comment on this story
Suggestions included setting aside money in advance for the trip or flying on low-budget air carriers such as Norwegian Airlines or Air Canada. When The Times article was written, a round-trip flight from the Newark airport to London on Wow Air cost $306.
Another suggested way to save was to accumulate credit card points instead of miles. According to The Times, miles are becoming "less and less valuable." Credit card points with cards such as Chase and American Express will typically go further than accumulated miles. Using points instead of redeeming miles could help save money.
