#2 Other Florida Locations – Known as the Sunshine State, Florida has many world-renowned beaches along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Florida became a popular winter tourism destination for sun-seekers from colder climates over a century ago and has gained even greater popularity since.
#3 Whistler, BC - Famous for hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics, Whistler has been a favorite ski and snowboarding destination for decades. Whistler is consistently ranked as the number one mountain resort in North America: With two spectacular mountains, world-class skiing and boarding, four championship golf courses and a wide array of shops, restaurants, vacation rentals, chalet rentals and accommodations there is plenty to keep a visitor busy, all year long. Add to that the spas, hiking and biking trails, and you might not want to leave.
