Over lunch yesterday, a friend and I lamented the fact that we had to wear rain boots, winter coats, scarves and hats just to go outside. It’s been that kind of winter in New York–cold, rainy, and grey–and we just wanted to get away and get some sun. So, naturally, we went back to our desks, checked Fodors.com for dream vacation destinations and planned our fantasy trips. If you’re feeling the same way, here are some of the fun destinations we found on the Fodors 2012 Go List that will help you stay active while you’re getting some sun:
- One of the top destinations on Fodor’s Go List for 2012 is Cusco, Peru! Climbing in the Andes? Check. Trekking through mountain villages? Check. Eating ceviche after a long day of sightseeing? Check. There’s a lot to do that will keep you moving and healthy on vacation.
- If you don’t want to leave the 50 states, try a trip to Hawaii. If you’ve ever dreamed of surfing, Oahu is the place to go. grab a board, hit the surf and feel the burn the next day.
- Feeling adventurous? Book a trip to Rwanda. There you can hike all day through a bamboo forest to see Gorillas up close and personal. The Safari tourism in Rwanda is eco-friendly to boot, so you’ll be doing the earth a favor too!
- I truly believe that the best way to see a new city is on foot, and Milan might just be perfect for that. Aside from the amazing architecture and art, there’s a ton of designer window shopping to do! And when your feet hurt from walking all day, it’s the best place to get a new pair of shoes!
