Find Lodging & Follow These 3 Travel Tips This Winter, Onalaska, Wisconsin

Whether it’s rain, sleet, snow, or ice, bad weather can detour your family vacation this winter. The safest thing to do is have a travel plan and be prepared to take shelter if a storm hits. A hotel is the perfect place for lodging, whether it’s simply for a night or an extended stay.

Top 3 Tips For Safe Winter Travel

lodging1. Plan Ahead 

Check weather.com for the forecast in your area, as well as the forecast on your route and where you are lodging. Before you leave home, charge your phone and separate GPS unit, if you plan to use one. Keep chargers in the car, too.

2. Prep Your Car

Fill up your gas tank and stock your car with healthy, non-perishable snacks, water, heavy blankets, towels, and a flashlight. Keep hats, gloves, and scarves in the car, and put a de-icer and shovel in your trunk. These things are especially important if you are traveling with children or older family members.

3. Don’t Panic 

If an unexpected storm hits while you are driving, don’t panic. Drive cautiously, be mindful of those around you, and try to get off the road as soon as possible. If necessary, book a hotel room where you can safely stay until the storm passes.

Onalaska Inn has the best lodging in La Crosse County, offering complimentary breakfast, satellite television, and free Wi-Fi in their clean, newly renovated rooms. Like their Facebook page or call (608) 783-2270 to book your stay.
