When the snow starts falling, vacations to warm and sunny places usually comes to mind.
"Even though there isn't a lot of snow out there, this cold weather is definitely getting people to think about warmer places in the new year," stated Kellie Smith with Marlin Travel in Drumheller.
Smith mentioned that Mexico is still one of the most popular winter destinations.
"Cuba is picking up and some of the Caribbean Islands are starting to become popular. Even though the American dollar hasn't been favorable to us, Hawaii is actually kind of popular for the new year. I'm surprised with the exchange, but it's gorgeous there. You're pretty much guaranteed your weather anytime you go there," Smith outlined.
Although we all want to escape the cold winter weather, make sure to take pre-cautions before leaving such as unplugging electronics and ensuring the safety of your home.
