10 Best February Vacations

After the crazy days of the holiday season are past, it’s time for a relaxing vacation to break up the remaining winter months.  Whether you want to hit the slopes without the crowds, hit up a grand Carnival party or seek that perfect romantic escape for Valentine’s Day, these 10 best February vacations have it all and more.

february vacations aspen skiingAspen, Colorado

The slopes are still snowy, the views are spectacular, and the crowds have thinned, so there is no better time to visit this famed ski resort. Equally perfect as a getaway for two or a family vacation, Aspen welcomes all ages and skill levels.

Daytona Beach, Florida

Beat the spring break crowds by visiting Florida in February. The temperatures are comfortable and there is plenty to do: check out Bike Week or catch a NASCAR event during Speed Week.  You’ll also be close to major attractions like the Kennedy Space Center.

Paris, France

Yes, the weather is cool and wet, but there is no better place for a romantic vacation than Paris.  Because it’s low season you can get great deals on airfare and hotels, and the lack of crowds makes this a more private and peaceful Valentine’s Day getaway.

Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

Can’t afford Paris?  You can still enjoy a fabulous French vacation in historic Quebec City. The heart of French culture in North America celebrates its world-famous Winter Carnival in February.  For a vacation you really won’t forget, stay in the Ice Hotel, one of only a few in the world and only open from January through March.

Any list of the 10 best February vacations wouldn't be complete without a balmy slice of paradise. Sandy beaches, sunny days, and glistening waters – what’s not to love about the Turks and Caicos in February?  Anyone looking to escape the winter chill will find this the perfect vacation destination, and as a popular honeymoon choice it is also about as romantic as you will find for a Valentine’s Day retreat from the world. 

New Orleans, Louisiana

Looking for a vacation that you will never forget?  Head south to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, the famous celebration of decadence. With warm temperatures and not stop activity, this Southern city on the Bayou is an unforgettable place to be for your February vacation.  Watch the parades go by from your balcony or join the crowds in the streets!

Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania

It just would not be right to list the 10 best February vacations without considering Groundhog Day. If you are looking for an early February getaway that is a blast for the whole family, come see Punxsutawney Phil himself in person and enjoy the three-day Groundhog Day festival. With entertainment, ice and snow sculpting competitions, great food and parades, whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow you will have a great time.

Sydney, Australia

If the winter of the northern hemisphere has you yearning for sun, the good news is that it’s summer in Australia. The huge Australian Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras takes place each February, but if you want something quieter the beautiful beaches and Great Barrier Reef await you.

Hawaii

There isn’t really a bad time to go to Hawaii, but for a Valentine’s Day getaway the sunsets, scenery and beaches simply can’t be beat. The weather is beautiful and it makes a great getaway for romance or for the entire family.

Arizona

If you need to stay on the mainland but are looking for sunny days and winter warmth, Arizona has what you are looking for. This family destination offers the fun of big cities like Phoenix or a chance to get out on the range on a dude ranch. Take in the sun and check out Lake Havasu before the Spring Break crowd takes over.
