10 Hot Places to Visit in may

1. Fort Lauderdale, Florida

High: 78 degrees

Low: 62 degrees

One of the largest cruise ports in the world, Fort Lauderdale is truly an international beach destination. Catering to a mature and upscale crowd, this is one of Florida’s top destinations for high-end shopping, elegant cocktails, live music, and of course, the beach.

Water is the way of life in Fort Lauderdale, as it’s built on a canal-like canal system (the Venice of the Americas, anyone?). This brings a luxury yacht vibe, bright hotels, and top-notch restaurants.

Most of the activity buzzes around Las Olas Boulevard, which is lined with high-end shops and restaurants. Tip: Be sure to have brunch at the Big City Tavern, a local rite of passage. We heard the Crab Benedict cakes and banana Nutella French toast are to die for.

2. The Maldives

High: 84 degrees

Low: 79 degrees

The Maldives is paradise, dotted with lagoons, luxury resorts, overwater bungalows, and sky-burning sunsets.

The best attractions in the Maldives are really its top-notch hotels, which are among the best in the world. One even has its own underwater restaurant.

But visitors will want to start in the capital, Malé, which is the best place to see local life. Drink in the vibrantly colored houses, aromatic markets, and culture of the National Museum.

Scuba diving is an obvious attraction in a nation that is mostly made up of ocean space. Feeling adventurous? Try Hammerhead Point at Rasdhoo Atoll for some of the best hammerhead diving. Rasdhoo Divers is a local dive shop that organizes tours to see the sharks.

Kauai, Hawaii

3. Kauai, Hawaii

High: 78 degrees

Low: 66 degrees

For outdoor adventure in a delightfully warm climate, it has to be the island of Kauai. Not for resort lovers, Kauai will dazzle those who live for adventure, helicoptering through the emerald valleys and ziplining through the treetops, hiking waterfalls, and zigzagging around towering cliffs.

Begin your Kauai adventure by setting the scene with a Blue Hawaiian helicopter ride through Waimea Canyon. Adventurers can also hike the 11-mile Kalalau Trail for an up-close look at the rugged cliffs. Note: As of June 17, permits are required to walk the full trail. For a lower-impact experience, consider taking a dip at Poipu Beach Park or Kalapaki Beach.

The natural environment of Kauais has remained relatively untouched. No city exceeds 10,000 people and no building is taller than a coconut tree, which is required by law.

4. Cape Town, South Africa

High: 84 degrees

Low: 63 degrees

When it comes to choosing a February getaway, none can be as perfect as Cape Town, South Africa. The weather is particularly attractive, with warm, sunny days and cooler nights. The end of the holiday season in Cape Town also means that children are back in school and residents are back to work. All the reasons you came to see Cape Town will be decidedly less crowded and flights are likely to be cheaper.

The sparkling city, a congruence of culture and cuisine, looms large on the epic and iconic Table Mountain National Park. Cape Town is also a haven for surfers, hikers, mountain bikers, and more. It is also a beautiful mix of cultures that blends the traditional African heritage of the area with its Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and Hindu influences.

On the outskirts of the city are two of South Africa’s most prominent wine countries: Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, so if you’re an oenophile, these will be must-visits on a trip to Cape Town.

5. Hong Kong

High: 66 degrees

Low: 57 degrees

Hong Kong is a city that vibrates with magnetic energy. It’s a true melting pot of culture and can be an incredibly accessible city for travelers who are new to Asia. February is a wonderful time to visit this former British colony, with its mild and dry temperatures.

Hong Kong is a cross between the traditional and the modern, where towering skyscrapers jostle alongside ancient temples. Foodies flock to Hong Kong to sample everything from late-night street food to elegant Michelin-starred dining. It’s also a shopping mecca, where you can get everything from night market trinkets to tailored suits and dresses.

Hong Kong is also a wonderful destination for active travelers. Away from the apartment buildings and towering steel structures, there is a vast network of mountainous national parks and forests filled with hiking trails that open up to impressive views of the city. 40% of Hong Kong is green space. Two of the best places for visitors to Hong Kong are Dragons Back and Lion Rock Country Park.

Disclaimer: Since June 2023, there have been small- and large-scale political demonstrations in several areas of Hong Kong. The protests are generally peaceful, but the latest update from the U.S. State Department urges travelers to monitor local media and avoid areas where demonstrations are taking place. In addition, on October 4, the government declared that any protests that take place without authorization are considered illegal. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings and be careful if you’re around large gatherings or protests.

6. Tenerife, Spain

High: 69 degrees

Low: 58 degrees

The Canary archipelago is made up of seven volcanic islands, the largest and best known being Tenerife. Tenerife is the jewel in the crown of the Canary Islands, known for its white-sand beaches, beautiful resorts, and a laid-back lifestyle, even by Spanish standards. The local cuisine and wine are top-notch, with fresh seafood, tropical fruits, and the ubiquitous mojo sauce, a garlic and chili sauce that accompanies just about everything.

Tenerife is dominated by Mount Teide, a volcano that reaches over 12,000 feet (the highest peak on Spanish soil) and is popular for hiking, astronomy tours, and spectacular views between the cable car and the summit. Teide National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most beautiful natural landmarks in the Canary Islands.

7. Greater Palm Springs, California

High: 75 degrees

Low: 48 degrees

Vacationing in Palm Springs means enjoying the playground for celebrities from the 1950s and 1960s. Palm Springs has a retro vibe that coexists well with the area’s 21st-century luxuries.

February is a wonderful time to visit Palm Springs because the weather is, in a word, perfect. Think cooler temperatures in the morning and warm, sunny temperatures during the day, so you don’t have to worry about the hot desert sun. It’s a prime location for golf and a haven for campers, specifically in Joshua Tree National Park. There is also camping on Lake Cahuilla and other activities such as fishing, hiking, and horseback riding. Speaking of hiking, La Quinta Cove has a variety of hikes that vary in difficulty, all with stunning views of the landscape.

8. New Orleans, Louisiana

High: 66 degrees

Low: 47 degrees

You don’t have to be in the Mardi Gras mood to have a good time in New Orleans in February. (Although it interests you, it’s February 25, 2023.)

New Orleans is a year-round dining favorite, with old-school classics like oyster poboys, as well as elegant, refined fare at high-end restaurants like Herbsaint. It’s a city of music and partying, from Mardi Gras festivities to Jazz Fest. It really is one of the great American cities with a mix of Caribbean, African, and European influences that is as American as it gets.

Stroll past historic architecture, take a trolley through the French Quarter, marvel at the mansions of the Garden District, and listen to trumpets blasting until the wee hours along Frenchman Street.

9. Los Cabos, Mexico

High: 81 degrees

Low: 61 degrees

With so many warm-weather places to go in Mexico, it can be almost impossible to choose! Look at Los Cabos this winter. Not only is it an absolutely stunning place where the red rock desert meets the deep blue sea, but new hotels are opening left and right.

New hotels worth your consideration are the Hard Rock Los Cabos and the Nobu Hotel Los Cabos (a joint venture between famed Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro). Los Cabos is also developing the east side of the Baja Peninsula, known as the East Cape, and a Four Seasons has recently opened there.

Los Cabos is an outdoor paradise. While many of the beaches aren’t suitable for swimming (because of the strong surf), there’s jet-skiing, snorkeling, kitesurfing, scuba diving, hiking, and more. Consider a visit to Cabo Pulmo National Park, a diver’s paradise and one of the last remaining boho beach getaways in this part of Baja California.

10. Savannah, Georgia

High: 64 degrees

Low: 45 degrees

Sophisticated Southern charm meets plenty of American history in this beautiful Southern town. After all, Georgia was the 13th and last British colony. Imagine iconic antebellum mansions, moss-covered oak trees, green space, cuisine, and craft breweries. Let’s continue. Savannah is a stunning city known for its delicious soul food, vibrant arts scene (home to the Savannah College of Art and Design), and mysterious past. That’s right, many of its historic buildings are haunted.

If you like shopping, Savannah is the place for you, especially if you like boutiques. Many of the boutiques in Savannah are dedicated to local produce. Visit Satchel, which is owned by SCAD graduates and known for its handmade leather goods.

Get a taste of Savannah in a glass by sampling some of their locally brewed beers. Southbound Brewing Company, Coastal Empire Beer Co., and Moon River Brewing Company are just a few to mention. There’s also Ghost Coast Distillery, Savannah’s only operational distillery.
