Thread: Warm Winter Getaway

    Warm Winter Getaway

    Just curious, where are some great places you've visited to get away from the cold weather. We've done Maui, Oahu, Disney World, Caribbean cruises and went to a great vrbo by Cabo in Los Barriles, Excellence resort in Dominican Republic. Thinking about Costa Rica maybe next year.

    New Orleans, South Beach and Savannah are just a few. It all depends on what you like to do.

    Disney World/Universal was great cuz it's very accessible. Went around Halloween and it was very warm during the day but could get pretty chilly at night, to the point I'd be shivering. Had to pack jacket and blanket when I headed out in the morning.

    Went to Punta Cana, DR, early this year and it was pretty nice. Not entirely accessible but they tried.

    My travel companions complain about humid, hot weather but I rather like it after my injury, I think, because I don't really sweat and can't feel the stickiness all over me. Rare perk.

    I much have been living in MN. too long as Nebraska sounds like a nice winter break. It was -8 earlier, close to zero now but still around -20 Windchill.
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    Went to a Costa Rica resort a few years back, it was "fairly" accessible, but anything outside it was pretty tough, had to roll down the streets in the city because the sidewalk had like an 8" curb and no cuts anywhere. We had fun, mostly because a lot of family was there, but it is a beautiful place. Key West is a laid back place to visit, most places you want to go are readily accessible, with some places a little harder.

    Thinking a trip to Phoenix, Arizona could be good end of March. Make a couple nights in Fountain Hills with friends then to Sedona for a few. Any recommendations? I'm the wife to my dear C4/5 complete husband. We enjoy sight seeing, eating , little gambling, and entertainment like live bands etc. I like some shopping not so much him. He may get into the art stuff a little like the hand blown glass and things of that nature. I the the Talking Stick Resort or one of those good to stay at?

    Phoenix can be hit and miss for cold in March some years its plus 70 some times in can be in 50s.

    I wouldn't stay at the casino as its nice but smoky and over prices but lots to do in that area..
