Hakone, Japan

Hakone, Japan is the best place to vacation in February. Hakone is only about 45 minutes away from Tokyo via public transportation, but it is a relaxing hot-spring town in the mountains and feels a world away from the big city. It's wonderful to visit in February because Hakone is a hot-springs town, where you can spend your time relaxing in natural hot spring water and viewing the gorgeous scenery. (February's temperature tends to hover around 0-5 degrees celsius in Hakone, so bring your coat and enjoy your hot springs; you won't freeze.)

I've been there twice before and would happily go again. If you go, definitely consider staying in a ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn that offers private hot springs facilities and on-site, delicious dining. Also visit the Hakone Koawkien Yunessun, a literal hot-springs park where you can bathe in red wine (among other things).

February is the best time of the year to visit the region. You'd get to indulge in the last bites of summer, with kids already starting school and the year unfolding in full swing -equals... fewer crowds!

After spending a week of long sunrise strolls at the beach, vivid sunsets, wine-tasting, swimming, and road-tripping, I must say Margaret River is beyond stunning. From Meelup Beach to Yallingup's limestone caves, the Injidup natural spa, and the Busselton Jetty, I'd go back in a heartbeat -and may never leave again!

The best way to get to Margaret River is to fly into Perth and pick a rental car or hop on a bus -around 3 hours- to the town of Margaret River.

Dunsborough is another well-located base to start your trip! When talking about the future of the region, it'd be great to include more public transport to get around towns.

The compound is located in beautiful and scenic city of Muscat, Oman. With crystal clear blue skies, pollution free, lowest pandemic country and backdrop range of mountains. Day activities are many but my favourite was driving to a secluded beach where you can hire a boat and see the beautiful colorful reefs or scuba dive in crystal clear waters of the gulf of Oman. There are also day trips to the desert for The Dune experience.

Steamboat Springs, Colorado

February is an extra special time of year to visit Steamboat Springs, Colorado where you can enjoy all the things that can make winter in the mountains so fun! While this town is popular for its expansive ski mountain resort, the town itself is full of charm and history and there is a vibrant community of locals that doesn't make it feel so much like a touristy town.

The Winter Carnival takes place in February, where you can enjoy events around town including music, food, late-night bonfires with s'mores, snow sculptures, and a ski-jumping jamboree on the local hill downtown. Don't miss seeing the Diamond Hitch Parade -- where people, vehicles, and animals (including horses) pull people through the snow-filled downtown streets on skis doing all sorts of tricks and jumps.

Another must-see is the Night Extravaganza which takes place at the local ski hill downtown and includes illuminated skiers parading down the mountain in lighted-suits and sparklers. The night is topped off with fireworks in the wintry sky that illuminate the snow-covered mountains below. And after all that fun, you can soak those tired muscles in the natural Strawberry Hot Springs tucked away in the mountains just a few miles from town.

Paris, France

My wife, Shauna, and I visited Paris, France in February of 2019. This was our first time traveling anywhere across the Atlantic Ocean to a place Shauna has always dreamed of visiting. And we both loved it! So much that we plan on making Paris a yearly trip from now on.

We loved our visit and everything that Paris had to offer. However, we did end up visiting there during some of the Yellow Jacket protesting. The protesting has since slowed down, and hopefully gotten things under control to make our next visit even better.

Two things that we loved the most and would recommend to anyone going is the No Diet Club tour, and the Seine River Dinner Cruise. We did both of these activities early on our trip and so glad we did. We got to see a vast majority of the city, and really take in the culture early on. This allowed us to enjoy our stay even more, and also allowed us to go back to some of our favorite spots we visited. Next time we plan on doing a bar crawl early on!

Key West, Florida

Traveling in the cold weather months is the best! February is one of the slower traveling months so you can get amazing deals on flights and hotels.

Florida gets all the press for the perfect place for February. Let everyone else go there. And San Diego gets all of the press for the perfect year-round vacation spot, but you’ll enjoy less people and more beach at this northern San Diego County coastal village. My husband and I have been lured back year-round over a dozen times.

Every single person we ever encountered there is friendly. We have never had a bad meal. If you can tear yourself away from the beach and the town’s European charm, there are so many things to do so nearby, from ogling the surfers the next town north in Oceanside to unleashing your inner child at Legoland just outside of town. You can even pop into San Diego: dreamily gaze at the breathtaking coastal scenery while riding the COASTER rail into Old Town San Diego.

Yosemite National Park, of course.

Conditions need to be just right for Mother Nature to put on her fantastic annual display at Horsetail Fall, know as the Firefall.
