Lucky Nevadans. Las Vegas, the world’s playground, is just a hop, skip, and jump away for those who live in the state—and it’s an easy flight for those nearby, thanks to new nonstop flights by Alaska Airlines.


New offerings around the Strip include Downtown’s Circa Resort & Casino, the world’s largest sportsbook and a massive pool complex; Resorts World, set to open this summer; and the new AREA15, a huge, interactive arts and entertainment district located near the Strip. For those now comfy with their WFH routine, you can now take it to the pool with special remote working packages at MGM’s ARIA and Bellagio resorts.


Want to get to it all a bit faster? A citywide Loop system of Tesla autonomous electric cars built around a 10-mile tunnel system from McCarran International Airport to the Fremont Street Experience with stops along major Strip resorts is on the way. Its first phase allows convention attendees to travel at high speeds between the Las Vegas Convention Center and debuts soon. —Andrea Bennett

Snow-capped practically year-round, New Hampshire's White Mountains are New England's ultimate outdoor playground.


Winter is the pinnacle time to visit, when a dozen ski resorts are in operation, including New Hampshire's largest, Bretton Woods, and its most challenging, Cannon Mountain, where Olympians have trained. Turn-of-the-20th-century grand hotels like the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods and The Wentworth in romantic Jackson Village sparkle with firelight and are incredible places to snuggle up.


While you’re getting cozy, plot your next snow-season adventure, whether it be dog sledding at Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel, a beginner-friendly snowmobile tour, a memorable SnowCoach ride up Mount Washington, or a breezy horse-drawn sleigh ride for two at Farm by the River. As you wrap up your trip, dream ahead to a return visit in the spring, summer, or fall, when you can delight in this region's beloved waterfall hikes, high-peak climbs, scenic drives, freshwater swims, and historic train rides. —Kim Knox Beckius
