Her second spot is Point Judith, Narragansett. That's my husband with me right after we had our baby girl last March. Fun to see the Block Island ferry pass by, and all the fishing boats.

Mike Nikitas
One of Mike Nikitas’s favorite New England winter vacation spots is Cannon Mountain, NH. I’ve been skiing Cannon since I was a teenager, and it’s still my favorite resort in New Hampshire, because of the skiing, the views and the atmosphere. He’s shown here with some longtime ski buddies. Mt. Lafayette and the Franconia Ridge are in the background.

After living in Vermont for a few years, I became spoiled with all of the winter fun it has to offer. Stowe is second to none, with world class skiing, tremendous dining options, and amazing accommodations. Not to mention a quaint village with plenty of unique shopping opportunities. You can tell my friends Staci and Steph were in charge of the camera as we squeezed into a gondola last winter; I barely made the picture!

One of NECN Business Editor Peter Howe’s favorite winter places is also one of his favorite summer places: Cape Cod. Here’s a fresh layer of wet snow covering a cottage in Dennis.

Not exactly the day you want to hang out in that hammock on the Cape Cod screen porch!

When the leaves are off and the snow weighs down the roses and honeysuckle and forsythia, all kinds of homes become visible in winter on Cape Cod.
