18. Austin, TX
Why you should go: Austin rarely gets snow and sees winter temperatures in the 60s, but its best attractions are good year-round: Pose in front of its iconic murals at Jo’s Coffee, South First, or East Seventh; bar hop on Sixth and Rainey Streets or visit the breweries in Eastside; catch live music everywhere from Stubb’s to The Continental Club Club; and chow down on BBQ at Franklin Barbecue, Freedmen’s, or Micklethwait Craft Meats.
Why it’s a steal: Median airfare to Austin from December to March hovers around $255. You can book a room for $179 per night on average, a 15 percent savings over the fall months.
Where to stay: Located at the corner of Sixth and Brazos Streets, The Driskill is at the heart of Austin’s food and music scenes. You can even hear live music in the The Driskill Bar 365 days a year. Rooms during the winter start as low as $159 per night.
