10 Warm Winter Getaways for Families That Won’t Break the Bank

Reader's Digest Logo By Melissa Klurman of Reader's Digest | Slide 1 of 11: For free activities that kids love, this Florida destination can't be beat: Dubbed the 'shelling capitals of the world,' Sanibel and Captiva Islands have long been known as meccas for shell collectors. Thanks to the destination's geography and the east-west orientation of the water, the waves catch incoming shells of all shapes, varieties, and colors. They arrive daily by the hundreds of thousands, many of them fully intact. For kids, it's like trick-or-treat on the beach; for parents, it's a free and safe activity that comes with built-in complimentary souvenirs. And of course, there's the warm surf and sea location, and easy to reach location.

Pack your bathing suit and take your family to one of these easy-to-reach sunny destinations in the United States and the Caribbean that are as easy on your wallet as the warm sun is on your skin.
