2014’s Hottest Vacation Destinations

We pride ourselves on transforming our clients’ backyards into their favorite destination. It is hard to have that same sentiment when there have been 20+ days with below zero temperatures this month and snow keeps falling. Winter sifts the snowbirds from the general Minnesota population and many look to escape to a warm climate for a week or two for a spring break vacation.

The places listed below have been projected to be 2014’s hottest family destinations, click here for the top 10.

Norway

I don’t know that I’d get the travel agent on the horn to book a plane out tomorrow as Norway experiences snow and cold weather much like the Twin Cities. The climates may be similar but Norway has mountains, waterfalls and fjords.  The country has a huge fishing community which we suspect will resonate well with Minnesotans. Regardless, Norway seems like a beautiful safe destination to bring the family. Check out 11 most famous things about Norway here.

Aruba

We would definitely be willing to leave for Aruba at a minute’s notice. Bring your beach toys as your visit will be packed with a ton of family-friendly oceanside activities. This year also marks the 60th anniversary of the Aruba Carnival, the islands largest annual event.  The Aruba Carnival format/schedule is similar to St.Paul’s Winter Carnival and events are underway now!
