Charleston, Savannah, Orlando, Tampa Bay. We've done winter staycations in all of them and loved all 4.

A southern winter vacation isn't my first choice. Would prefer skiing in Vermont. If I had to go south I'd choose Southern California. Maybe Laguna Beach.

None of these if you're also looking for seasonal employment. Winter seasonal employment is in ski resort areas. I mean...maybe South FL because it's so tourist-heavy and may have a need for seasonal employees with all the snowbirds and vacationers in town. But SoCak does not hire seasonal/contract work in winter because it's a year-round economy. The only thing would be working minimum wage retail for the holidays, but good luck living on minimum wage in SoCal.

I don't even ski, but yeah, winter should be nice and snowy.

Default SoCal for sure

Too many bugs and too many Floridians in South Florida and too brown and dry and too spread out in Arizona for my taste, so SoCal wins by default, although much of the winter there is more mild than warm. Additionally SoCal is large enough to have many different kinds of places, depending on whether you prefer beaches, mountains, or deserts, and also more of an urban, suburban, or rural feel.

None of the above. I'm looking forward to the cold and snow so I will stay right where I am here in the snow belt

I might go visit the Adirondacks for skiing or Tug Hill for some serious snowmobiling action though!

I'd do South Florida - it's the part of the country I'm least familiar with (only part of that state I've been to is Disney World).

I voted for South Florida, because winter is the best season in this region. Summer is the worst.

Thatís why Southern California is the best choice. You can be in the snow and/or skiing in under 2 hours from the beach all winter long.
