Top 5 Winter Break Destinations


Kailyn Lowe, Editor

Snow or sun, cold or hot, it just depends on your preference for your ideal winter vacation. Unfortunately, many vacations can be overpriced and quite frankly, overrated. However, here are some of the more affordable and exciting places to go over winter break. 

  1. San Diego, California 

This is one of the more warmer options, being in Southern California. However, it is close to Washington and holds many things to do, including, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld San Diego, Old Town, and so much more. The best part is, if you don’t want to stick to just San Diego, there are many cities around that you could drive to, to see more wonders of California. 

  1. Las Vegas, Nevada 

Again, Being closer to the Washington side, in Las Vegas, the city alone is very fun to go to because for the parents, there’s gambling, and for the family, there are many other attractions. This is including, going to a Penn and Teller show, High Roller Las Vegas, Eiffel Tower Experience, Circus Circus, ect.. Even just walking around the strip gives you a rush of excitement!

  1. New York, New York 

This is a very family-friendly place to go! There are many things to do there, including the Statue Of Liberty, Central Park, The Empire State Building, Times Square (great for new years eve), Rockefeller Center, and many more attractions that you and your family can enjoy. 

  1. Miami, Florida

Miami is a very fun place to go as well, although there are not a whole lot of amusement parks or main attractions there, there are still many hidden gems throughout the city, such as the Miami Seaquarium, Bayside Marketplace, Jungle island, Venetian pool, and many more. 

  1. Seattle, Washington

It wouldn’t be a complete list without adding our very own, Seattle! There is so much to do in Seattle including, the space needle, the Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Museum Of Pop Culture, and many more. Not only is it the cheapest place to go on the list, but there is so much to do and see!
