7 Summer Destinations That Are Surprisingly Gorgeous in the Winter

Reader's Digest Logo By Lindsay Cohn of Reader's Digest | Slide 1 of 8: <p>Cape Cod has much to offer to those willing to visit outside of the summer months. Come winter, you'll find many unexpected pleasures like frosty beach walks, cultural attractions, minimal crowds, and tasty treats. Gallery hopping in Provincetown is always a hit. Or, bundle up and hit the trails at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary or the Salt Pond Visitor Center. Afterwards, warm up (and satisfy your sweet tooth) with a cup of cocoa at The Hot Chocolate Sparrow, Hole-In-One Doughnuts, or Pie in the Sky Bakery. For something a little stronger, stop by Cape Cod Beer or Devil's Purse Brewery. And if the weather is crummy, why not expand your mind with a trip to the Cahoon Museum of American Art or the Woods Hole Science Aquarium? Speaking of animals, <a href='https://www.rd.com/advice/pets/dogs-on-cape-cod/1/'>these photos prove there's nothing better than being a dog on Cape Cod</a>.</p>

Maybe the beach or islands fade from your memory when the temps drop, but these warm-weather locales are even more beautiful blanketed in snow.
