Winter can be long and before you know it, you’re daydreaming about lounging in the hot sun on a beautiful sandy beach. If the shoreline is calling to you this season, we have a few destinations that will not only cure your winter blues, but will be easy on your wallet:
Key West, Florida
After Hurricane Irma, this popular destination is eager for tourists, which makes it a great place for an escape. There’s plenty to do for the entire family, including snorkeling, kayaking, dolphin watching, and even cruising around the island. You can even take a boat or seaplane to Dry Tortugas National Park and explore the area’s coral reefs and sea life.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Love the idea of turquoise waters and white sand beaches? Take a trip to Punta Cana and choose from one of the area’s many sublime locations. And if you’re looking to make your getaway a romantic one, our PHL Airport parking company suggests a hot air balloon ride, a moonlight beach massage, or a hike through the beautiful Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park.
Santa Cruz, California
If you want to make your vacation a laid-back, relaxing experience, discover the warm invitation of Santa Cruz. Called the “sunny seaside equivalent of a beanbag chair” by AARP Travel, you’ll discover a bohemian vibe among the 29 miles of beach, vintage amusement park rides, an arboretum, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and more.
Getting to Hawaii isn’t exactly cheap, but once you’re there, the island of Kauai can be quite an affordable getaway. If you can forgo some amenities, you’ll find great deals on hotels and if seafood calls to you, some of the freshest in the world is available for a great price. Just don’t forget about the stunning cliffside scenery and endless water activities.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
For a beach experience that doesn’t stop entertaining, head down to Myrtle Beach. You’ll find more than 100,000 hotel rooms, 300 outlet shops, a handful of golf courses, and miles of beautiful beach. If that’s not enough, you can always enjoy an interactive aquarium, live concerts, or the 20 story-high SkyWheel.
South Padre Island, Texas
Not many think about Texas for a beach vacation, but South Padre Island offers a peaceful atmosphere that’s great for lounging and soaking up some sun. The area also boasts birdwatching opportunities, golfing, horseback riding, ziplining, deep sea diving, jet skiing, and plenty of other activities if staying active is what you want to do.
