Winter Getaway Guide

When the weather outside is frightful, these are the times when you just want to escape. The frigid days of winter can make you long for a vacation that will boost your spirits and eliminate the winter doldrums. Read on for information about some perfect winter getaways.

If the snow is falling and you`re tired of shoveling your driveway, consider booking a trip to sunny Florida. Beaches, the ocean, temperate weather and long lazy days by the pool are just a few of the attractions that await you. Florida is a popular destination for tourists fleeing the winter weather and offers more than just sunny skies. Visit a museum, go to the zoo, check out a play at a local theater, enjoy a concert or just watch the world go by as you relax at an open-air café.

A vacation in Hawaii is an excellent way to beat those winter blues. Visit during the first two weeks of December and save money since Hawaiian vacations increase in price during the latter days of December. Explore Hawaii`s six islands, stroll down its beaches, see volcanoes, go whale watching, learn how to hula and soak up all that Hawaiian culture. You will soon forget that your neighbors are dealing with blizzards back home.

Take a trip to Puerto Rico during the winter season and you can enjoy plenty of sun, surf and excitement. Brush up on your Spanish and get ready for a wide variety of attractions. Go to historic sites like El Moro, explore underground caves at Rio Camuy Cave Park, shop in San Juan and discover the jungles of El Yunque. Better yet, you can use American money since Puerto Rico is part of the U.S.

Maybe you love the snow and want to travel somewhere that features plenty of the white fluffy stuff. If this describes you, consider making a winter getaway to Utah. The Wasatch Range of mountains features a variety of resorts certain to please the most diehard winter attraction aficionado. Skiing and snowboarding are just a few of the activities you will enjoy while in Utah during the winter months. After hitting the slopes, be sure to get a massage at a resort spa or sit by the fire as you sip your hot chocolate.

Using your First Choice vouchers can help you when you search for the perfect winter getaway. Whether you seek a paradise vacation at a beachside resort or long to ski down snow-packed slopes, you will find the ideal getaway that will help you chase those winter blues away.
