Mardi Gras in St. Louis?!? Top Travel Spots for February || Thrillist Travel Guide


– February is the
shortest month of the year, which basically means
you need to be choosing your vacation days very wisely. Luckily, we can help you with that. Hello internet, my name is Wil Fulton and this is “Thrillist Travel Guide,” where we not only teach you
how to be a better traveler and, in turn, a better human being, we tell you where you
should be going specifically whenever you feel those itching
little pangs of wanderlust. To be quite honest, February
is a great month to travel. It’s short, it’s cold in most of the country, and you’ve gotten through
one month of the year, so you deserve to treat
yourself to a little break from reality, or at
least, that can be the excuse you use to justify buying a plane ticket. Every month, Thrillist’s
travel team handpicks destinations that you should be visiting right (beeping) now. February is no exception,
so without further unnecessary setup, here
are our expert picks for some of February’s top vacation spots. First up, let’s start with a shocker. OK, I realize that a trip
to Missouri in February with its less-than-tropical climate sounds more like a sick punishment than a well-earned vacation. But we do have some reasoning here. St. Louis is home to the
best Mardi Gras celebration outside of the Big Easy. Some contend it’s a little less crowded, and by extension, a little
more fun for visitors who aren’t interested
in fighting off crowds to score some sick beads. Outside of that, St. Louis
has some great restaurants, a slew of solid museums, and of course, their legendary arch. This is the perfect
excuse to visit St. Louis in your lifetime and check
the arch off your American landmark bucket list. – Well, look at it this way honey. This is a part of America
we never get to see. – Next up, for those who want
to fully embrace the winter, in this case, specifically
fresh pow pow, brah, consider Vermont. On the East Coast, it’s
pretty much a given that Vermont has the best
slopes for all your skiers, snowboarders, tubers, and
people who just like to chill in the lodge drinking hot toddies. Which is totally fine, by the way. You can also embrace even more
obscure winter sports there. We’re talking ice climbing
or even a day-long dog sled through the Vermont wilderness. And of course, the cherry
atop your Vermont trip should always be a stop at Ben
& Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory for reasons that should
be painfully obvious, even in winter. ♪ No need to imagine ♪ – For those looking for
something a little more romantic than pummeling down a
ski slope and potentially busting your (beep),
we’ve got Venice, Italy. Now February is an extremely solid time to book a trip to Venice
for some very valid reasons. First of all, those Instagram-ready alleys are way less packed in the
earlier months of the year. So you can get that profile
picture you’ve always dreamed of without some dumb tourist gawking in the backdrop. Secondly, the cooler
temperature means, well, to put it bluntly, the
city will smell less bad. If you’ve been to Venice in warmer months, you’ll know those gorgeous
canals don’t always smell like a bouquet of roses. In February, this will
be less of an issue. All factory preferences aside, February 16th marks the
kickoff of the Venice Carnival, which is a ton of food, fun, floats, and, well, you probably get it. It’s a big party and you’ll wanna be there if you have any semblance
of fun in your body. Now that we’ve given you a
taste of what our list entails, you probably wanna see the
rest of the picks, right? You can click the link to the article that will be somewhere around this video to find out why other destinations like Elko, Nevada, or Belize
made our list this year. Hopefully, Belize is a no brainer. It’s warm, it’s nice, it’s cheap. Who wouldn’t wanna go to Belize? I actually might go to Belize right now. I’m takin’ off. I’m Wil Fulton and that was
