Here's A List Of Best Winter Vacations. What Do YOU Think?

Hawaii Calling!

I LOVE to travel and I can confirm that Iowans, in general, LOVE to travel.  Every trip I run into Iowans on vacation.  We especially love to schedule a warm-weather vacation during the winter months.

A lot of folks are probably counting down the days to their winter vacation. But while a lot of people will probably be taking the typical beach or ski trip, there are a lot of great destinations to explore when the months turn colder.

Well, “U.S. News & World Report” just came out with their annual list of the Best Winter Vacations, and they're offering some suggestions for everyone. In addition to an overall Best Winter Vacations list, they offer up things like Best Winter Family Vacations, Best Affordable Vacations, Best Christmas Vacations and more.

Overall the mag named Hawaii – The Big Island as the Best Winter Vacation, with Rome topping the list for the Best Affordable Winter Vacation. If you’re looking for a family vacation, Orlando and Walt Disney World in Florida tops the list, naturally, while the Best Christmas Vacation is Prauge in the Czech Republic.
