4. Kauai -Hawai’i
If relaxing on the beach all day doesn’t interest you, opt for Kauai for your winter getaway. Kauai has towering cliffs, gorgeous valleys, and waterfalls that you can hike your way up. If you want to be impressed, take a helicopter tower over the island to get a bird’s-eye view of the gorgeous island. If heights aren’t your friend, take a sailboat ride around the Na Pali Coastline to get your fill of postcard-worthy pictures.
