There’s something about the stretch of time between Christmas and spring that feels positively never-ending. Days drag on, the cold weather refuses to leave, and even the most charming things about your city start to annoy you.
The cure: Get out of town. And we’re not talking a quick drive to the nearest B&B. You need a true vacation, complete with some indulgences and brag-worthy experiences.
Of course, one vacation definitely does not fit all, so we’ve rounded up our favorite getaways for 2014—and then grouped them into three categories: destinations for couples, families and friends traveling together.
Each trip offers its own unique perks—and all ring in under $2,500 (exclusive of airfare). Most important? They’re guaranteed to banish those winter blahs, leaving you feeling rejuvenated.
