5 Places to Spend Endless Summer Days

Wish summer was longer? Perhaps you can stretch summer a little longer this year by taking a trip to destinations with a tropical climate. You can even take road trips to some of these destinations.

Here are Travelmath’s 5 places to spend endless summer days:

One: Key West

Key West has a tropical maritime climate with average daytime winter temperatures hovering around 75 to 80 degrees, while most of the northern states are facing subzero temperatures. Key West is 166 miles from Miami and 822 miles from Atlanta. It is served by nine airlines.

But the best ways to enjoy Key West and the Florida Keys is to fly into Miami International Airport (MIA) and drive from Miami to Key West. Get a convertible and enjoy the sunshine and fresh warm air.

Two: Miami

Miami’s winter daytime temperature averages around 75 to 77 degrees from December to February. You don’t have to bring your heavy jacket or thermal underwear when visiting Miami in winter.

Airfare to Miami tends to be higher during winter months. Use the cost to drive tool to find out if it is cheaper to fly or drive from your hometown to Miami.

Besides beaches, Little Havana is one of the top attractions in Miami. Don’t be surprised if English is not spoken at Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) the main road in Little Havana. Most residents are immigrants from Cuba and other parts of Latin America and they speak mainly Spanish.

Enjoy the Latin food, music, dance and hospitality without the need to fly into a foreign land or packing your passport. Visit Maximo Gomez Park, also known as Domino Park. Watch the locals play Cuban dominoes. Check out Paseo del las Estrellas (Walk of the Stars) and find out who are the famous Latin American actors, writers, artists and musicians.

Three: Big Island Hawaii

The average daytime winter temperature in Hawaii is 78 degrees with an approximate 10 degree drop at night. According to GoHawaii.com, temperatures can drop dramatically at higher elevations. For example, within a day in the Big Island you can explore the tropical rainforests in the Hamakua Coast, the cool uplands of Waimea, the volcanic deserts of Kau and the sunny beaches of Kona.

There are two airports serving Big Island. Hilo (ITO) on the east of the island and Kona (KOA) on the west. Kona is a bigger airport compared to Hilo and it is served by nine airlines.

Take a road trip around the island and check out the Hapuna Beach Park, Historic Kailua Village, Waimea, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, coffee plantations and more.

Four: Belize

If you like to experience a different culture without the need to take a long flight we recommend a trip to Belize. Belize City is only two hours 47 minutes from Atlanta and four hours 6 minutes from Newark New Jersey.

The average temperature is around 75 degrees from November to January. To find a list of things to do, read 4 Ways to Find Relaxation in Belize This Winter.

Five: Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s average temperature is around 70 to 81 degrees. The Pacific and Caribbean coastal areas are warmer than the Central Valley.

The country does not have summer or winter seasons. But they have rainy and dry season. The best time to go is from November to February, which is also during our winter months.

We recommend spending time at the beaches in Guanacaste Province, Jaco, Cahuita and Nosara. Take time to enjoy nature at the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and Arenal Volcano National Park.
