@AlmostMrsDoc:  I’m honeymooning in the FL keys in Feb – might be hard to find reservations on late notice (this is kinda spring break time) but that’s my suggestion 🙂

Why does it have to be the US? 

You can find some great deals to Cuba, DR and Mexico out of YYZ. We are doing a week at a wonderful resort in Cuba for $1k, all in. Think you’ll be hard pressed to beat those kind of prices in the US

If you want the beach then the Florida Keys would be my suggestion as well for the warmest weather in Feb but make sure you go early or you will hit the Spring Break crowd (and Spring Break prices!)

Otherwise, weather in Florida can be temperamental in February.  Some days will be in the 80s while other’s may be in the 50s or lower if there is a cold front.

Why not try somewhere like Savannah, GA which will be somewhat warm compared to Canada?  It’s pretty romantic and relaxing that time of year.

@beachbride1216:  God I love Savannah. Would have loved to get married there. That said, it’s not a cheap vacation.

@AlmostMrsDoc:  Have you checked out Tripcentral.ca? They have Florida vacation packages that are affordable (you’ll have to look into what they include).  That is my go-to site for finding reasonable travel deals (my travel agent matches any prices we find there, so I get the benefits of an agent should anything go wrong, with the good deals of a web-based service)

 @SeaSalt:  Savannah can be reasonable if you use priceline to bid on a hotel or check out The Thunderbird Inn.

If you are really going for a budget trip then why not fly into Orlando and check out Daytona Beach?  Lots of deals there in early February so long as it’s not the week of Valentine’s Day.

@AlmostMrsDoc:  I think FL is pretty nice that time of the year, if you want US only, but if you check http://www.expedia.com you can find quick, cheap deals in the US for quick getaway….if you dont mind having a beach, then try Vegas.  I never been there, but hear wonderful things!! GL and have fun

I hate to say this, but you’re not really going to get dependably warm, cheap, and also in the US. Like others have said, Key West is incredibly nice, and arguably one of the warmest places to go in the US during that time, but unfortunately that is the high season of all of south Florida, and all the prices are going to be astronomical. I live about 4 hours away and I have a love/hate relationship with Key West… it’s so beautiful and wonderful to go, but even the tackiest super-8 motel nowhere near a beach runs $150 a night during the low season. And that’s not even taking into account the unpredictable FL weather in the winter. I was just down in Naples/Sanibel and some of the highs were in the 50s during the day.

Must it be in the US? You could really get some nice caribbean islands, or even Costa Rica for so much less than Florida.

@AlmostMrsDoc:  What about San Diego or Palm Springs here in California? It won’t be warm as in 90 plus degrees but you can probably count on 70’s and sunny. February is the down time for those two places and you can find reasonable deals.

I’d fly into Orlando or Tampa and drive to St Augustine; that should be about a 90-minute drive if memory serves me.  St Augustine has nice beaches, a lot of history/culture, and quite a few great restaurants and bars, but it should be lower season and relatively quiet. Won’t be super hot but should be at least warm in the daytime.  I can find B&B’s for under $150/night for random weekends in January.

Florida is the only place I can think of that’s really warm and very, very affordable.  Try Expedia or Priceline Name Your Own Price for hotels.  My dad once got us an oceanfront resort for $15/night in Daytona.
