Winter blues can drag down even the most upbeat of people. Why? It’s not the cold—the winter blues are actually related to shorter days and the long winter nights. While light therapy is a common and effective treatment to combat the winter blues, Tripbase has some winter vacation ideas for those of you have also been bitten by the travel bug.

Head south… way south:

While the northern hemisphere is experiencing both the shorter days and colder weather of winter, the southern hemisphere is experiencing the opposite—it’s summer and sunshine in half the world right now! There are many great travel destinations south of the equator. Here are a few hot spots that we wouldn’t mind waiting out the winter in:

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Great nightlife, great food… and gorgeous Portenos strutting their stuff down

picturesque streets.

Cape Town, South Africa

Amazing beaches, outstanding bars and clubs and a happening culinary scene.

Sydney, Australia

Fantastic restaurants, fabulous nightlife, and sunny shores.

Or a little less south:

A Caribbean vacation is a great way to beat the winter blues. Check out Puerto Rico, where you’ll find absolutely beautiful beaches, a vibrant culinary scene, and exciting nightlife. Or if you’re a nature junkie, get your fix while you get some sun—head to St. John in the Virgin Islands.

Make like the snowbirds and head to Florida:

Florida is a popular winter destination for tourists all over the United States, Canada, and the world. It’s hard to think of a better place than Miami to wait for the winter to pass. So check out the flights to Miami and head to the beach baby!
