Hotels and resorts across the United States have been getting creative this past year in an effort to entice travelers to visit. This winter, a scattering of hospitality brands are finding ways to innovate and offer new experiences during the pandemic as the industry continues to weather the fight against ongoing closures, furloughs and layoffs.

These six properties are staying open this winter for the first time in their respective histories. From Virginia to Colorado, freezing temperatures will not deter these destinations from embracing the opportunity to turn cold weather into a winter adventure.

Traditionally the Tides Inn in Irvington, Virginia, closes after Thanksgiving. But the demand for safe getaway destinations with easy access to the outdoors led management to reconsider. Instead, the inn is staying open through the holidays and into January for the first time in its 73-year history.
