No matter if you're trying to find warmer weather, or just get out the rat race for a few days, we could all use an escape from the winter blues. In this article you'll find a variety of locales and options to help you unwind this winter. No matter where you go, it's key to try to find a way to let loose and de-stress from your day-to-day life.

1.Punta Cana or Cancun-It’s hard to find more beautiful beaches and get more bang for your buck than these two hotspots. They both feature options to stay at all-inclusive luxury resorts. You have access to amazing watersports like snorkeling or scuba diving. And best of all, because they are both competing for your travel dollar, you can really get the most for your money!

2. Caribbean Cruises-A great way to beat the winter chill is to relax and unwind while cruising through the Caribbean. Popular for families of all ages, cruises are competitively priced and a great way to bundle all that you need—accommodations, transportation, and meals! Also saving you some headaches, no passport is required for cruising.  And who knows, you may run into jack sparrow!

3. European River Cruises- While not exactly warm enough to sunbathe or swim, the temperate climates of the Mediterranean will still help you escape the cold.  These cruises are another all-inclusive way to tour a few or many of the popular port towns Europe has to offer. Enjoy the sights of a multi-destination trip without worrying about coordinating hotel stays, plane, or train rides.

4. Italy-You can’t help but fall in love with the food, culture, and history of Italy. From picturesque Italian countryside to bustling marketplaces, Italy has something for everyone. There is also a wealth of places to explore; turn down a random street corner and you may find yourself in the courtyard of a beautiful 600-year-old church. The possibilities are endless!

5. Staycation- If you are simply looking for a place to relax and unwind without having to travel long distances, consider a long weekend at The Stone Hill Inn in Stowe. Enshrined in the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame in 2015, the Inn is situated on 9  acres of woodland, meadows and gardens with each room featuring its own fireplace to keep you toasty. You may find your time so peaceful, you might forget that you’re only a 45-minute drive outside the city.
