When a winter chill takes over the northern states, escape to Lake Havasu State Park, AZ, where the 60- to 70-degree temperatures will make you question whether you ever want to leave. As the park's name implies, the main attraction here is Lake Havasu and its scenic shoreline that welcomes winter campers. Arizona parks are popular this time of year, but you're sure to find a nice spot along the 45-mile lakefront, sometimes called the Colorado Coast. The beaches, boats, and campground grills beg you to sit back and relax, but there's also ample opportunity to get active. Hiking trails abound, as do bass-fishing tournaments in January. The Grand Canyon is another good pick -- even though it might be snowing on the rim, drop a mile down and you'll be in desert terrain (nights will be chilly, though).
