Florida’s proximity makes it an appealing option to Canadians. Whether you want to fly, take a road trip, or bring the family RV, getting to the sunshine state is incredibly accessible. Florida is one of our favourite winter getaway destinations. With vibrant seniors communities, it’s perfect for snowbirds who want to spend the whole season down south. With exciting attractions like Walt Disney World, it’s also perfect for families on a weekend getaway. With warm weather, sun, beaches, lively nightlife and entertainment, really it’s just perfect for everyone!

For Families: Of course, families will love going to Walt Disney World, but there’s plenty of other things to do in Orlando. Instead of staying at the resort, try renting a place nearby so you can get day-passes to Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and experience the other great museums, shows, and attractions Orlando has to offer.

For Seniors: If you’re looking for white beaches, sunshine, and the perfect mix of outdoor recreation activities and relaxation, look no further than the Emerald Coast. With several senior communities, golf courses, and snowbird clubs, Florida is the destination of choice for many Canadian snowbirds.

For Adults: Whether you want a romantic getaway with your partner or a rowdy getaway with your pals, Fort Lauderdale is your one-stop-shop for a fun vacation. With tons of live music, a great art and nightlife scene, casinos, excellent trails, shopping, and of course all the sand and sun you want in a Florida getaway, Fort Lauderdale has all the makings of an exciting adult trip.

The Caribbean

There are so many great places in the Caribbean for the relaxing winter break you’re dreaming of. The Caribbean boasts beautiful beaches, as well as incredible resorts for any type of vacation. Whether you want a romantic getaway, an adventure with your friends, or a family trip, the Caribbean has you covered.

For Families: The Dominican Republic, aka the adventure capital of the Caribbean, is the perfect destination for families to discover together. Explore the rain forests zipline, take in the coast by snorkelling or surfing, and sightsee the island by rock climbing or mountain biking. The Dominican Republic is the best destination for an active family vacation you’ll never forget.

For Seniors: Saint Lucia offers tons of relaxing resorts for seniors. Why not stay at one of the island’s all-inclusive resorts this winter? With a plethora of golf courses, tennis, sailing, birdwatching, and rainforests to explore, Saint Lucia can give you the relaxing beach vacation or tropical adventure you’re dreaming of at your own pace.

For Adults: Why pick one Caribbean destination when you can hit up several on a cruise! There are plenty of adult-only cruise lines for friends or couples to socialize and experience the best of the Caribbean.
