The nation's capital cleans up well for the holiday season. The White House Christmas decorations and holiday lights rival the spectacular showing at Rockefeller Center. The wide avenues make for majestic evening drives and the paths along the Potomac River by gothic Georgetown University make for scenic winter walks. Add plenty of indoor shopping malls, access to the city via high-speed train, an efficient public transportation system, and some of the best museums in the world, and Washington D.C. makes for an educational and entertaining winter vacation.
It's never too early to start planning that romantic Valentine's escape for that someone special (or at the very least you should be looking for that someone special to join you on that getaway). In 2006, the day of love falls on a not-so-romantic Tuesday, so in theory you can choose your getaway and celebrate a little early, or a little late, or just spend the entire week professing your undying love on a secluded beach, by that fireplace in the mountains or maybe somewhere in between.
Off-season winter trips to Tokyo are no different than traveling to New York or Paris when the weather turns cold. Normally a city of lights and noises, Tokyo in the winter is rife with electric splendor that makes it the most high-tech looking city in the world. Temperatures range from the mid 50s to the low 30s (Fahrenheit), so bring a winter coat and some sweaters, or buy them there. Tokyo is an incredibly fashionable city with magnificent stores; high and low fashion, and a great youth culture very in-touch with hip music and film.
Low fare prices to Rio de Janeiro, Japan, Washington D.C., San Diego plus system wide sales for AirTran, ATA and United.
