Hi,

Looking for a budget friendly travel destinations in the US in December. Can't go outside the US due to visa issues. If the place is warm, that would be preferred. Here is what I have researched till know:
1) Hawaii ( expensive)
2) Miami

Please suggest from your experiences.

    Mexico is nice. You can use revalidation to get back without needing a visa stamping

      This sounds interesting and great if it's true. Know this from personal experience?

      Yes works well but high chances of getting stuck in secondary processing for 1-2hours though they let you through eventually

      PLEASE spend some time double checking with your immigration attorney before doing this!

      If you can go to Mexico, then visit Mexico City.

      Go to Mexico city if you want culture and good food and so much more with a fraction of cost elsewhere. Or Cancun if you just wanna relax.

    New Orleans will be warm, not as busy and get God VFM. Good nightlife and also a bunch of outdoor activities to do. Jazz scene ๐Ÿ˜. Except you never know when weather will turn around and it'd rain. Take a chance.

      Budget as in cheaper than a Hawaii trip. If its more expensive than Hawaii, I would just go to Hawaii instead.

      That's an option but kind of want to explore farther destinations maybe on the east coast to make better use of the 2-3weeks time.

      You have Texas, Florida, Louisiana, and maybe Charleston SC. Anywhere north would be more cold.

    I just went to Austin late November and the weather was absolutely perfect. Food, nature and live music are amazing and thereโ€™s also a lot of quirky only in austin type of tourist spots as well. Incredibly cheap air bnb and costs in general..

    The ability to experience many microclimates due to the elevation from Scottsdale to Flagstaff.

    Awesome views & activities.
