Sure, our December weather has been pretty mild lately, but we all know Old Man Winter isn't done with us yet, right? 


So if you're looking to head someplace warm this winter, Midwest Living has compiled a list of some of their favorite sunny, beachy destinations.

And, of course, you'll be able to get all the info you need to plan an incredible vacation this year at our Rochester, RV, Boat, Hunting, Vacation and RV Show, January 11th - 14th at Mayo Civic Center! (Get more info on that, including tickets, HERE.)

But according to Midwest Living, you don't even have to leave the country to plan a nice, warm-weather vacation. They listed both Sanibel and Captiva Islands in Florida and South Padre Island, Texas as incredible places to beat the winter blues.

And, of course, they started out with... Oahu, Hawaii, saying, "Oahu's temperatures are perfect for year-round solar worship at Waikiki Beach, an oceanside luau in Honolulu, a hike through a rainforest or an eye-opening visit to Pearl Harbor."

If you're looking to dust off your passport, though, they suggest you check out Cancun, on Mexico's Caribbean Ocean to "Swim with the dolphins, brave a salsa lesson or just lie on the beach, hoping your vacation never ends."

They also recommended an international vacation in Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, noting that "with 40 miles of beaches, a vibrant nightlife and an array of all-inclusive resorts, Punta Cana is an enticing—and affordable—winter getaway."
