Blue skies and boardwalks await you in Tampa, located along Florida’s Gulf Coast. Take to the beach with a stroll or bike ride down the 2.4 mile-long Tampa Riverwalk, discover one of six infamous roller coasters at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, or take the kids to the Florida Aquarium to see over 20,000 plans & animals.

4. Orlando, Florida
Over a dozen theme parks and poolside activities help put Orlando on the list as one of our favorite summer-like destinations in the winter. But, theme parks aren’t the only reason to explore Orlando. Hot air balloon rides and skydiving make for thrilling adventures, along with downtown Orlando dining and brewery tours.
5. San Antonio, Texas
The San Antonio River Walk is abuzz with activity 365 days of the year. Boarding a water taxi by day is a popular choice for both visitors and locals alike who want to sample the sights, sounds and flavors of the most happening places along the banks of the San Antonio River.
Escape the cold weather with a winter stay on the Big Island. Snorkle or scuba off the 266 miles of coastline for a look at Hawaiian green seat turtles (honu), hike through the rainforest, stargaze at the Mauna Kea volcano’s visitor station, or indulge in the Hawaiian nightlife.
