    Carson, California
    The recently opened Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles (porschedriving.com), located just south of the city proper, is the West Coast counterpart to the facility that opened 2 years ago in Atlanta. In addition to housing the brand’s North American motorsport division, the new center features driving courses where you can get behind the wheel of a new Porsche and learn how to get out of a tailspin and other skills. You also can explore just how fast the car accelerates, and feel the g-forces that come with entering a banked racetrack turn at speed.

    Manchester, Vermont
    The Green Mountains offer an abundance of winter activities: downhill and cross-country skiing, tubing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding. And thanks to the roughly 6 feet of snow that usually falls on the region during this season, you can also refresh or improve your winter-driving skills at the Land Rover Experience Driving School at the Equinox Golf Resort & Spa (equinoxresort.com). The school operates on a purpose-built course that covers 80 acres. It’s open year-round, but during the winter months you can expect plenty of practice on snow-covered, slippery terrain.
