10. San Diego, California

Although it’s a larger city, San Diego definitely earns its well-deserved reputation as a great winter vacation destination. It truly has everything – city atmosphere with gorgeous beaches, amazing food, and a deeply American historical boardwalk.

The two most popular beaches are Pacific Beach (which has great surfing waves) and South Mission Beach, where the people watching is almost as good as the wide stretch of white sand leading down to the water.

Make sure to samples San Diego’s regional style of burrito – characterized by a wide variety of proteins and fillings, along with a healthy helping of guacamole.

11. Sedona, Arizona

From the earliest days of the native Sinagua, Yavapai, and Apache tribes, Sedona has been considered a site with great spiritual power. It still attracts practitioners of New Age medicine and spirituality, who are drawn to the powerful vortexes that are said to populate the area.

In the town center, you’ll find plenty of shops offering local crystals, workshops on spiritual topics, and all manner of unusual health and wellness treatments. If this isn’t really your scene, check out the excellent hiking areas that surround the town, and watch the sunset illuminate the red sandstone structures that are the area’s most popular feature.
