Late Winter U.S Hot Spots

Tired of the relentless cold and snow? Tired of piling on the extra layers to go out and chisel the ice off the windshield? Need a winter get a way?

The blues of winter can make your head spin, just thinking about months of cold, snow, wind and limited sunshine.

With that in mind there are some locations in the United States, where snow is a rarity, sunshine is more common and temperatures are much more tolerable.Of course everything is relative!

Some flock to the desert Southwest over the winter months due to the warmer daytime temperatures and increased amount of sunshine.

Outside of your occasional storm system, the 1-10 corridor from sunny southern California to southern New Mexico boasts comfortable temperatures in the 60s and 70s and low precipitation averages from Yuma, AZ to Tuscon.

If you crave warmth, but don't mind the occasional shower or thunderstorm, the sunshine state may also be an option. Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Myers and Miami are popular destinations during the cold winter months.
