 According to this list, I'm a fairly seasoned domestic traveler. I've been to the following locations: Las Vegas, Orlando, Key West, and New York City. My favorite vacation hot spot out of the top ten winter destinations is Key West, Florida.  No questions asked. Key West is the perfect tropical vacation to relax and let go. If you choose to drive, I'd recommend stopping at the No Name Bar as well as taking a few other pit stops along the way to get a first hand view of the spectacular view. 





Least Expensive Winter Week to Visit: January 18 - 24: $3,684

·       Value Hotel: Eden House – $382 avg. rate, when booking on TripAdvisor
·       Must-See Attraction: Key West Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour – $30 starting rate, when booking via TripAdvisor.

All to often, I hear others talking about vacationing. And frequently I hear the common response, "next year."  How many years will you put off?  Collect moments not things..
