February is one of the best times in the year to travel, especially if you live in a cold climate. It is also a great time to visit some romantic destinations since Valentine’s Day is during the month. Regardless of your reasons to want to visit other places during the month of February, here are five destinations you should visit.
5. New Orleans
The Big Easy is fun to visit any time of the year but February is when it’s at its craziest with Mardi Gras starting on the 13th. Visiting New Orleans in February will allow you to enjoy the festivities, which will include carnivals, concerts, plenty of Jazz, good food and drinks.
If you do plan on going there, don’t forget to bring some beads with you.
As one of Mexico’s best kept secrets, the beautiful beach town won’t have too many tourists, so you can enjoy a nice relatively quiet vacation. Apart from the beautiful beaches, which is usually the biggest attraction, the city has a few places to relax if you want to get away from the beach.
If you visit Zihuatanejo, make sure you try the local cuisine, especially anything with mango.
3. British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands are a great place to visit when trying to escape the winter. At this time of the year the weather is warm and there is very little rain so you can enjoy a pleasant stay whether you plan on relaxing on the white sand beaches or snorkeling at Brewers Bay.
The Islands also have boat tours that allow you to do some island hopping, and the local cuisine is something you should try while visiting the Islands.
Miami is a great place to travel to in February because the city is a fun place to be and you don’t have to worry about the crowds because it isn’t the summer and spring break doesn’t start for another month.
There are a lot of things to do in Miami, you can go to South Beach during the day and have some fun at one of the many clubs the city has to offer.
Miami can be a little expensive so make sure you have enough money to cover your expenses before going.
1. New Zealand
Getting there might take a while, but it is worth it because New Zealand in February is one of the best places to be for those trying to escape the winter.
Since it is located at the other side of the world, February is a summer month in New Zealand, and the temperatures at that time of the year can be compared to Europe in August.
You can enjoy the landscape, go on nature walks, or even take in a rugby game while you’re down there.
