After a long day in the chilly air, all you want to do is get inside, shed the layers and thaw out fireside with a cup of hot chocolate or some other warm beverage. The idea of going back into the cold can send shivers up your spine even before you take a step out the door. But, what about dipping a toe (and the rest of you) into an open air hot tub?
There's something fun about being outdoors in freezing temperatures while being soothed by the warm currents of a hot tub as you admire sprawling, snowy mountain views or peaceful wooded landscapes. Cozying up with your sweetheart during a nighttime dip under the stars can also add sizzle to a romantic weekend getaway. You might need to leave the hot tub just to cool off!
