Where is the best weather in January?Getting away in January? Then you may be wondering, "where is the best weather in January?" Well, for lots of sunshine, you'll want to head South. Florida, especially its southern coast all the way down to the Keys, and Hawaii are always open for sand and surf-style fun. However, it's tropical hot spots way down south, like in the Southern Hemisphere, that are enjoying summertime in January. Favorite destinations include Central America (especially Guatemala), the Caribbean, Mexico, and South America (Peru is a highlight this time of year).

But there's plenty to do in the North Hemisphere, too. States in the USA known for super hot climates - like Texas, the California desert region, and Arizona - are actually quite comfortable in January.
