Distance from Baltimore: 2,100 miles, about a thirty-two-hour drive (or a four-hour flight to nearby Salt Lake City) Why it's cool: In addition to offering typical winter activities like snowboarding and skiing, Jackson Hole gives guests the chance to engage in snow kite-boarding, paragliding and dog sledding. While youre there, be sure to catch a game of moose hockey or take the children to the Kids Ranch for Wild West Woods fun and an educational ski and snowboard program. And enjoy sunset views of the nearby Teton Mountains, above. Don't miss: The National Elk Refuge sleigh ride is a horse-drawn ride among thousands of elk, above. The specialty ride is available to visitors from December through April.
