Choosing the best winter vacations

There's certainly no shortage of awesome winter vacation ideas out there. In fact, packing the bags between December and February can mean soaking up the rays on tropical beaches just as much as exploring snow-mantled mountain ranges and snuggling up in fire-warmed alpine lodges. And you shouldn't have to fork out loads for the luxury of jetting off around this time, either – winter vacations are known for being relatively easy on the wallet, provided you pick the right spot.
