Winter may have its snowy charms, but we all crave the warmth after a few weeks in a deep freeze. That’s when people start dreaming of an escape to an island, resort or city in the sun. When you’re getting tired of the cold and dark months, there are always some tempting hotspots that are either experiencing their summers or are just blessed with year round sunshine. Looking for a place to thaw this winter? Here are some of the best warm weather getaway ideas to help you beat the winter blahs.
Hawaii enjoys great weather all year round, and winter is no exception. It may experience a little more rainfall during those months, but don’t let that deter you. They’re usually short bursts or at night time, so it shouldn’t impact your beach, golf or sightseeing time. The daytime temperatures hover around the 80 degrees mark, but evenings can be comfortably cooler. If you’re coming from the snow belt, you’ll have no complaints. Whether you visit Oahu, Maui, Kauai or the Big Island, you’ll find plenty to see and do – or not do, if relaxation is your preference. Bonus, winter is the best time to spot humpback whales in Hawaii.
