Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area

2820 Co Rd 414, Spicewood, TX 78669

Overall, the south border of United States is a great place to escape a bitter winter. However, there are plenty of hidden gems other than your most famous state parks, and Muleshoe Bend is certainly one of them.

This 654-acre park features 9.8 miles of biking and hiking trails, and a breathtaking watery view by the lake. But most importantly, this region typically stays around 50 degrees during the winter season. So, if you’re getting hit by those -20 cold fronts this year, it’s time to pack up and head to Texas.

Standing in between Waveland and Clermont Harbor, Buccaneer State Park overlooks the famous Mexican Gulf and provides you with all you’d want when it comes to a beautiful off-season vacation at the beach.

Pack your large beach cart full, and remember to grab some sunscreens, because you’re about to enjoy a winter where the highest temperatures can get into the mid-60s (wait, does that still count as a winter, even!?).

Grand Canyon National Park

Arizona

Staying around the mid-40s for the most part, while Grand Canyon may not have the warmest weather for a winter getaway, it certainly has one of the most stunning views to offer across the United States.

Featuring the famous red rock where you can see millions of years of geological wonders, Grand Canyon National Park has all the sightseeing and activity options you could ask for. Plus, you can easily take a drive to Phoenix or Scottsdale, where you can pamper yourself while fully enjoying Arizona’s mild winter.

Everglades National Park

Florida

We don’t need to say too much about Florida’s weather. After all, everyone is already heading there to avoid the snowpocalypses around the States. But just in case you’re not convinced enough to make a trip yet, how does kayaking with alligators sound?

Because the park enters the dry season once December is over, the climate actually attracts various predators and wading birds. Therefore, when you drift down the water during the winter season, you’re most likely to see views once in a lifetime.

A trip to the west coast certainly counts as a winter getaway. Then, no wonder one of the best warm weather winter camping experiences can be found in the State of California.

Big Basin is best known for its marvelous redwood trees throughout the park. And during the off-season months, you might just be the only person hiking in the forest in the mid-50s weather. Imagine how peaceful and ethereal that would be.
