There are plenty of places to visit and lots to do in February. There is the Quebec Winter Carnival, the Art Deco Weekend of New Zealand, the Imagine Children’s Festival at Southbank in London, and more. There is something for everybody in February, whatever the age.
Here are some of the best places to visit in February.
Turks and CaicosAlmost all the Caribbean Islands are fantastic destinations, and February is a good time to visit all of them. Choose Turks and Caicos, because there are fewer people here. It’s a slice of paradise with glistering waters, sunny days, and sandy beaches. Spend your Valentine’s Day here.
Sydney, Australia – February is still cold in the northern hemisphere. Why not head to the south to escape the polar winds and chill? There aren’t many better cities to visit than Sydney. And if you can extend your trip, then you could go to Melbourne, see the Gold Coast, and visit the Great Barrier Reef as well. It is sure to be a fantastic trip.
New ZealandAnother option in the southern hemisphere is New Zealand, a country steeped in incredible natural beauty. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy classic outdoor adventure in the country. Go on a camping, hiking, or fishing trip, or cruise around the islands and the hidden coves. February is the end of summer here, so the weather will be perfect.
India – India is a country with a lot of variety. There are amazing nature reserves with elephants, tigers, and rhinos, plus historical sites spread out across the country, backwaters, beaches, and World Heritage Sites. The summer heat and humidity can be a killer in India, but February is just the right time to visit the country. It’s not too hot, and it’s not too cold.
Venice, Italy There is the Venice Carnival in February, which is the most happening time of the year in this unique water-city. Venice has hosted its carnevale since the 15th Century and it’s a must watch. You’ll love the extravagant event and the masks as the procession leaves Piazza San Marco. There is a Nordic walk with costumes, decorated boats, a water parade, and a masked costume contest.
Paris or London – It’s still quite cold in both Paris and London, but there are fewer tourists this time of year. as a result, you’ll get plenty of deals, including hotel deals. It makes sense to save money when you have to see and do so much in these cities.
