February is nearly here, and it’s the perfect time to get away from the cold weather. Some of the best places to visit in February are relatively affordable, have great weather, and are packed with fun activities that you can enjoy with your partner.

February is also a month of highs and lows. 

On one hand, it is an exciting time when the temperature starts to drop and spring is just around the corner. But on the other hand, we are right in the middle of winter, so temperatures remain at their lowest. This makes February a challenging time to travel.
