Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Orlando, Florida
Move over Mickey Mouse! Florida’s latest attraction is the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, located in Orlando’s Universal Studios. Designed to look exactly like Hogwarts and the village of Hogsmeade, the park allows families to shop at Ollivanders, Honeydukes, or Zonkos. If thrill rides are more up your alley, take a magical journey through Hogwarts on “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” or tackle dragons with the high-speed thrill ride “Dragon Challenge.” Three hotels allow families to stay close to the action: the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, the Hard Rock Resort, or the Loews Royal Pacific Resort. Families who stay on-site and show their hotel room key can skip the regular lines and use the Universal Express lines all day!
Orlando – Disney World
Disney World does a lot of business during the winter and it is easy to see why. Cheap flights seem to always be available and the weather is some of the best in the country during the season (the average high temperature in January is 36 degrees in NYC, 72 degrees in Disney World). Add in the fact that Disney World is one of the premiere family vacation spots on the planet, and you have plenty of reasons to make the trip to see the Mouse. Runners should take note that the Walt Disney World Marathon is held every January — just make sure to register early, as it fills up fast.
Winter is the most popular time to visit Phoenix, and there’s no question as to why. With consistently sunny skies and high temperatures hovering between the high 60s and mid-70s, this desert metropolis offers a little taste of summer. While the rest of the country is donning thermal underwear, you can be teeing off at one of the Valley of the Sun’s many golf courses, stretching your legs on Camelback Mountain or getting pampered at one of the dozens of top-notch spas found throughout the city. However, because Phoenix has become a coveted snowbird destination, be prepared for high prices and low availability.
