UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Sampath Ranganathan (Business Administration) tells WalletHub readers about winter holiday destinations, including some great travel advice. “Weather-wise, the Midwest region has equal chances of being hot or cold than normal during the upcoming winter. The rest of the continental USA would be warmer than normal winter months. Economy wise, the job market is at historic heights, inflation is low, gas prices are low, so we can expect a very good travel season. If snowfall is lower than normal, industries that depend on wintery conditions like ski resorts could be affected.” See more.
