Ten Reasons You Need a Winter Getaway...Escape to Hocking Hills!

Ten Reasons You Need a Winter Getaway

Old man winter seems to have arrived already! With the holiday season upon us, don’t skip out on giving yourself a gift! In fact, we're highlighting the top 10 reasons you need a winter getaway!

  1. Time away from work – Step away and clear your mind. You’ll be a better manager or employee when you return to work.
  2. Time to decompress (and start planning for 2018) – Put your new planner to good use and fill it up for more fun things to do. Shoot for one fun activity a month!
  3. Reconnect with Nature – There are numerous options for hiking with walking trails and gorges to explore. Or, just try sitting on a bench and watching the snow fall; the cold can actually feel stimulating.
  4. Time away from the kids – Everyone loves their kiddos, but time away makes for better parenting.
  5. Pamper yourself – Enough said! It never gets old!
  6. Reconnect with your honey - Spend quality time with your significant other. One-on-one time never gets old.
  7. Break away from the day-to-day grind – It’s good to break the daily routine and it can improve your focus and your outlook.
  8. Put the car in park – Driving in the snow or on the ice isn’t anyone’s favorite part of winter. Save mileage (and gas) and skip driving for a few days; stretch your legs with a brisk walk instead.
  9. Binge-watch movies – Old classics or “girly” flicks are best enjoyed without distractions and “to-do” lists nudging you to finish.
  10. Vow renewal seems like a romantic gesture any time, but winter is quieter and less crowded with breathtaking scenery too.


Between work, family, exercise, and chores, it can be very easy to forget about the simple things that fulfill us. When you take time for yourself, you're more likely to recognize what surrounds you. When you're in a quiet environment, you’re naturally operating from a happier; perhaps more light-hearted state.
