15 Easy, Warm Getaways to Take When You’re Craving Sunshine

Time spent away from the cold is always a great medicine for winter blues

Winter’s first snow has already fallen and by now most people feel like they’re ready for summer. You can’t change nature’s biological clock but you can cheat it. Heat things up this gloomy season and plan a vacation where the heaviest garment on your body will be hiking shorts.

Even the biggest winter lovers have had enough of snow at one point. Carrying 20 pounds of layers of clothes, hats, gloves, and big boots can be uncomfortable. Suddenly warm-weather trips for the holidays sound very appealing as opposed to going to a ski resort.

Next thing you know, you are walking out the door to embrace the warmth somewhere in the Caribbean, South America or even south of Illinois with summer-like temperatures in February. Perhaps in an off the beaten path locale?

Visit a coastal fishing village that will delight you with history, adventure, and of course, warmth; relax on breathtakingly beautiful beaches that give way to some of the best waves you’ll find anywhere; and make time for a true paradise on Earth if you like perfect weather and water sports. 

Grab a small suitcase, pack a few swimsuits and light clothes, dig out your sunglasses, and head out for a sunny adventure.
