Summer vacations are all nice and tempting, but have you ever given winter vacations a thought? Flight and hotel prices drop dramatically after the holidays. This is mostly due to the fact that most of us have maximized our vacation days and plans on travelling are no longer there. If you are one of the few lucky ones who has piled up some extra paid leave days, you might be able to take advantage of an incredible trip for not too much cash. For domestic travels within the USA, it is even more possible than you can imagine.

The best cure for those winter blues is a change in a location, away from those freezing temperatures. Despite the harsh winter winds places like California, New Mexico, Arizona and Florida are waiting to offer a nice and sunny experience.

Here is an incredible list of destinations to plan for your winter vacation:

  1. Sun Valley, Idaho

This winter wonderland is a skier’s paradise. Sun Valley, Idaho has a total of 205 sunny days per year giving skiers a stress-free opportunity to hit the slopes.

  1. San Diego, California

Pricey trips to San Diego are usually during the summer vacation period. But during the winter season, San Diego is the place to be, especially with its hot and sunny weather, which makes it suitable to visit the beach or even the San Diego Zoo.

  1. Santa Fe, New Mexico

Santa Fe, New Mexico is a bustling artistic community where tourists get the opportunity to absorb the local culture in the stylish art galleries. It is rich in Native American History and culture with a broad range of events, historical sites and museums.

  1. Orlando, Florida

Orlando, Florida, has been termed by some as the most magical place on earth. Especially after the summer holiday, the less packed Walt Disney World Resort offers the unique opportunity to carry the whole family for a New Year’s trip to Disney.

The beauty of a winter vacation is that there is no strain to your wallet. The USA has everything for everyone, no matter the temperature. You can go skiing, grace the beach or visit a busy metropolis. What are you waiting for?
