There’s a lot to love about winter, from exhilarating days on the slopes to cozy nights in front of the fire. But we all know there can be a downside, too – like, when was the last time you saw the sun? If the long winter has got you feeling a little down, it’s time to start planning a warm winter getaway to help elevate your vibes. Here at StorQuest, we’ve put together a few of our favorite destinations where the sun is always shining.
Long Beach, California
When temperatures are falling across the country, Long Beach, CA, is one place where you can count on year-round sunshine. Located in the heart of Southern California, this sandy beach city is ready to explore, from award-winning beers overlooking the ocean at Ballast Point Long Beach to historic tours of the retired ocean liner, The Queen Mary, Long Beach is the perfect place to soak up some sun. So grab your surfboard and wetsuit out of storage and hit the beach for an afternoon of legendary swells this winter.
With plenty of warm days to spare, Miami, FL, is another winter getaway you can always count on. With the combination of beautiful beaches, ice-cold drinks, and plenty to do outside, Miami is a premier winter destination. Whether you prefer being a part of the roaring crowd at a Miami Heat basketball game, kayaking on the crystal clear water, or checking out some awesome art at Art Basel, Miami is just the paradise you need right about now.
With temperatures averaging in the 80s, humpback whales seen on the horizon, and warm Hawaiian waters, Honolulu is another incredible place to escape the cold. If you’re in search of the perfect wave, winter brings massive swells to the North Shore. If you’d rather watch the pros fly down these monster waves, head over to Sunset Beach for the Vans World Cup of Surfing, which takes place Nov. 25 - Dec. 6. So dig your feet in the sand, leave your winter coats at home, and head to Honolulu, Hawaii, for an unforgettable winter experience.
Palm Springs, CA
While other vacation destinations are starting to wind down during the winter, Palm Springs continues to be an attractive escape for those looking to heat up. With the combination of perfect temperatures, world-renowned golf courses, and plenty of epic hikes, there’s something special about this desert oasis during the wintertime.
Sedona's mild temperatures are perfect for a winter visit, because you'll be spending all your time outside. Between the fantastic hiking at Red Rock State Park, the Jeep tours, and visits to the infamous "vortexes," you're not going to want to waste time inside. Check out the art scene downtown, or visit the legendary Chapel of the Holy Cross, designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. You'll never get tired of Sedona.
