Winter is right around the corner and I remembering one of my favorite Winter ever – when my family went down to Key West. The weather is perfect in Key West during this time of year! During winter, especially the dreary months, I love when my family can visit us and take a respite from the cold in sunny South Florida. Here are some of my winter travel ideas to help escape the bitterly cold weather season.
Southern Hemisphere Travel
Almost 10 years ago, I went to Buenos Aires for almost a month and realized how amazing South America really is. Argentina along with the rest of the Southern Hemisphere has the opposite seasons from people in the United States and the Northern Hemisphere. When it is winter in the United States, it is Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. This switch of seasons makes travel to the South Hemisphere a great idea for winter family vacations. I am biased toward Buenos Aires in Argentina as a choice to for winter vacation, but there are so many other spots that you might love like with slightly milder Summers. Buenos Aires can get into the 90’s during their summers.
If you are looking for more mild summer temperatures (during December), Mendoza in Argentina is a great choice. This is Argentina’s wine country with temperatures around 79 degrees Fahrenheit.
I have been hearing amazing things about Peru, Chile, and Columbia. There are so many other places in South America that I am dying to explore.
