48. Nice, France
Why you should go: Take in the Mediterranean without sharing the French Riviera’s beaches with throngs of summer tourists. The balmy Cote d’Azur is home to France’s biggest Carnaval festival, which takes place from February 16 to March 2.
Why it’s a steal: You can fly to Nice for a median airfare of $681 between December and March. Hotels cost an average of $126 per night, a savings of five percent over the fall months.
Where to stay: Don’t judge a hotel by its exterior—Hotel Windsor has a ton of personality, with 30 of the 57 rooms individually designed by different artists. There’s also a heated outdoor pool so you can take in the views no matter the temps. Rooms start at $104.
