Summer

Fiji - Click this link to find the temperature, precipitation, and pictures

Dazzling sands, perfect palm trees and waters so blue they glow: if you don’t see them with your own eyes, you’ll swear Fiji’s beaches have been airbrushed. While stunning stretches abound, it’s on the islands of the Mamanucas and Yasawas that you’ll find Fiji’s most heavenly heavyweights. These beaches are a posterchild for Paradise, luring thousands of visitors keen to discover their own South Sea idyll. The appeal of the islands stretches beyond holiday happysnaps; their reefs, bays and sublime sands have provided cinematic eye-candy to films including Tom Hanks’ Cast Away and 1980 teen-dream classic The Blue Lagoon.

Savannah - Click this link to find the temperature, precipitation, and pictures

Like a proper Southern belle with an electric-blue streak in her hair, this grand historic town revolves around formal antebellum architecture and the revelry of local students from Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). It sits alongside the Savannah River, about 18 miles from the coast, amid Lowcountry swamps and mammoth live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. With its colonial mansions and beautiful squares, Savannah preserves its past with pride and grace. However, unlike its sister city of Charleston, SC, which retains its reputation as a dignified and refined cultural center, Savannah is a little gritty, lived-in, and real.

Yellowstone - Click this link to find the temperature, precipitation, and pictures

They grow their critters and geysers big up in Yellowstone, America’s first national park and Wyoming’s flagship attraction. From shaggy grizzlies to oversized bison and magnificent packs of wolves, this park boasts the lower 48’s most enigmatic concentration of wildlife. Throw in half the world’s geysers, the country’s largest high-altitude lake and a plethora of blue-ribbon rivers and waterfalls, all sitting pretty atop a giant supervolcano, and you’ll quickly realize you’ve stumbled across one of Mother Nature’s most fabulous creations.

Winter

Whistler - Click this link to find the temperature, precipitation, and pictures

Named for the furry marmots that populate the area and whistle like deflating balloons, this gabled alpine village – and 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games venue – is one of the world's most popular ski resorts. Nestled in the shade of the formidable Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, the wintertime village has a frosted, Christmas-card look.

Aspen -  Click this link to find the temperature, precipitation, and pictures

Here’s a unique town, unlike any place else in the American West. It’s a cocktail of cowboy grit, Euro panache, Hollywood glam, Ivy League brains, fresh powder, live music and lots of money. It’s the kind of place where no matter the season you can bring on a head rush in countless ways. Perhaps you dropped into an extreme vertical run, or stomped to the crest of Buckskin Pass in under three hours? It could also come while relaxing at the local music festival, peering down into the bowl of a superpipe or climbing an ice wall. It’s possible the horse-drawn sleigh took off too fast for you while you were peering over at yet another $10 million estate, or that cycling to the top of Independence Pass has left you exhausted but smiling.

Amsterdam -  Click this link to find the temperature, precipitation, and pictures

Seventeenth-century buildings. Joint-smoking alien sculptures. Few cities meld history with modern urban flair like Amsterdam.

Two wheeling is a way of life here. It's how Amsterdammers commute to work, go to the shop and meet a date for dinner. With all the bike rental shops around, it's easy to gear up and take a spin. If locals aren't on a bike, they may well be in a boat. With its canals and massive harbour, this city reclaimed from the sea offers countless opportunities to drift. Hop in a canal boat (preferably an open-air one) or one of the free ferries behind Centraal Station for a wind-in-your-hair ride.
