While New York’s frost nibbles at the toes, and Chicago’s snowy streets are crisp and white, there are plenty of places in the USA where you can escape the cold and enjoy sunshine and balmy temperatures. Here are just a few suggestions for Christmas sun in the USA:
While it does dip lower, the average temperatures will hover around 20-25 degrees Celsius in December, and sunny days are frequent. Whether you come here for touristy Hollywood, the glitz and glamour, the chic, hip down town art scene, or the shopping, the city has plenty to offer every traveller beyond what you have seen in the movies. It is also a good base from which to explore the infinitely grand and varied landscape of California.
Austin is a paradise for hipsters, alt-scene afficionados, outward bound types and bohemians of all stripes. It is a quirky and unusual city with thrift-store, retro, vintage chic and a thriving alternative bar, club and music scene. You’ll find dive bars and excellent Mexican food, as well as hiking and biking trails leading right out from the city. If you are looking for something a little eccentric and different for your Christmas sun vacation then Austin might be just the place.
If the kids have been bugging you for years to take them to Disney World, then now, over winter, might be the time to take them to the theme park capital of the world. In the summer the temperatures can be exhausting, but over the winter the temperatures are still warm and pleasant during the day, and the crowds will not be as overwhelming. Harry Potter fans will be in seventh heaven at the ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ at the Universal Orlando Resort.
For a slightly more grown up Floridian vacation, why not base yourself in Miami? Head the the keys for traditional beach fun and to soak up those vital rays, or pamper youself with a luxurious spa retreat. If you are in the mood for something a little more active, why not take a tour of the Everglades, see the alligators and travel by airboat? If you like animals, you could also head for Monkey Jungle, where you will see thirty primate species, or to see the many inhabitants of the Miami Zoo. Looking for history, art, culture, shopping or fine dining? You will find them all in this interesting city.
Inevitable, really, that this outpost of the United States would make it into any list of winter sun destinations. These balmy sandy-fringed islands enjoy winter temperatures in the mid-twenties and are the archetypal sunny beach holiday destination. Be warned, the islands are wetter in winter, but the rain just makes the verdant greenery lusher and more inviting. Pried away from the beach by a shower, you may be more inclined to visit the interesting interiors of the islands.
There are many more options for winter sun in the USA, so book today, and discover the new world for yourself.
