Had enough of slush, snow, biting winds, and being all bundled up at home? With spring and summer still quite worlds away, escaping the dreariness of winter seems like it can only be a dream.

So, here are some great winter escape dream destinations that will chase those blues away and make everyone else green with envy that you can sport your favorite summer dress and bikini while they're back home in the cold.

Cancun, Mexico

Just south of the border are the perpetually warm beaches of Mexico. Party on the beach all night, or visit some Mayan ruins with the family. Whatever you do, the perfect Yucatan climate is the best way to forget your winter troubles.

Jamaica
Relax, enjoy the music, and bask in the sea of smiles and good company that you'll find in Jamaica. From hiking to swimming, to lounging with a tropical drink in your hand. It will be hard to go back home.

Boracay, Philippines

An oldie but goodie tourist favorite. The white sands on this Philippine destination is littered with high-end resort, a wild nightlife, and gorgeous sunsets that keep you coming back for more.

Beach going not really your style? Check out these destinations that take you far away from the sun tanning crowds.

Peru's Sacred Valley


Find your inner peace and take part in some authentic healing rituals in Peru. You'll emerge refreshed, re-energized, and feeling like you're ready to return home and face anything -- even the nasty cold of winter.

Cambodia

Unleash the Indiana Jones explorer in you by visiting the ancient temples in Angkor Wat dating back to the Khmer empire in the 9th through 13th centuries.

Blue Mountains, Australia
Or head for the clouds and climb up the Blue Moutains of Australia. You can either hike up or take a ride up in the Katoomba Scenic Railway or the glass-floored Scenic Skyway cable car.

Austin, Texas
Catch some great bands playing in the Live Music Capital of the World. This college town is a great place to unwind, listen to good music, and get a good dose of sunshine any day of the year.

Las Vegas
You just can't go wrong with a weekend getaway in Vegas. The Strip, the lights, the shows, free entertainment, and the money! Las Vegas has it all!

Florida Keys
America's Carribean is waiting for you to enjoy. Go on a cruise, go scuba diving, or just lay back with the 112-mile-long chain of islands at the bottom of Florida's mainland.

Hawaii
Once you step outside and get greeted by the turquoise blue waters and gentle swaying palm trees, you'll realize that getting away from the cold weather was so worth the effort.
