23. Fort Lauderdale, FL
Why you should go: Forget what you’ve heard about Fort Lauderdale’s spring break reputations. Did you know it’s also nicknamed the yachting capital of the world? Located on Florida’s east coast, just north of Miami, Fort Lauderdale hosts the world’s largest boat show in late October/early November. But you can visit Shipwreck Park, an underwater rotating art exhibit built around a shipwreck, year-round.
Why it’s a steal: The average airfare to Fort Lauderdale sits around $254 between December and March. Hotel rooms go for an average of $240 per night.
Where to stay: Built less than a year ago, the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach is a 290 all-suite resort with rooms starting at $241. Its 20,000-square-foot oceanfront Sky Deck offers incredible views of its North Beach location, and guests can take advantage of Conrad’s 1/3/5 program, featuring 1-, 3- and 5-hour itineraries.
