The first month of the new year always feels filled with promise, with resolutions fresh in our minds and longer days ahead. January 2020 also happens to offer a number of reasons to leave the cozy confines of our homes and get out into our communities, including a few especially exciting events and exhibits happening in our scouted cities. From a long-running celebration of winter in Aspen, Colorado, to a one-of-a-kind wine festival in Naples, Florida, here’s what we’re looking forward to next month.

Aspen, Colorado

From January 9 to 12, Aspen’s annual “toast to winter,” Wintersköl, comes to town. This yearly ritual, which dates back to 1951, is a four-day celebration featuring on-mountain activities, a snow sculpture competition, a history tour, a family-friendly WinterFest, fireworks over Aspen Mountain, and much more. {Find local recommendations for what to do and see in Aspen here.}
