Top 5 Beach Destinations to Escape the Winter and Tips to Get You There

We recently met up with travel bloggers Diana and Hope of MVMT Travel Beyond Bounds at The NY Times Travel Show.  As part of our Escape the Winter campaign this week we interviewed Diana and Hope about their top 5 beach destinations to escape the winter and tips to get you there.

Day Trip to Tortola, BVI

During our trip to St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, Carrie and I decided to take a day trip to the neighboring island of Tortola, British Virgin Islands.  Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands and is famous for its white-sandy beaches, one of which we visited!  Many of the British Virgin Islands are within easy reach of the U.S. Virgin Islands, with frequent ferry services and boat excursions to many of the islands.

Scuba Diving in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands

St. John, with its warm turquoise waters and white sand beaches, is the perfect destination to get away and spend a couple of days relaxing at the beach.  In search of something more active we decided to go scuba diving, something I was really looking forward to on this trip.
