As a December baby, I am all too familiar with the bday trip struggle. Italy is cold, New York is cold, and nothing else seems remotely worth the trip.
This may seem like a major first world problem, but to anyone born between November and February it’s down right dreadful.
NOTE: Average weather is from November – February
1. Bora Bora
Average Weather 83°
Known for their glamorous overwater bungalows, Bora Bora easily makes the list. Spend your birthday in the clear blue waters snorkeling, jet skiing, and swimming with sharks!
2. Cape Town
Average Weather 81°
With wine tasting, brunch, and the famous Long Street, you can spend your special day drunk and happy. Grab the girls and head Africa’s southern tip!
Average Weather 86°
From Nadi to Yasawa Islands, Fiji has multiple adult only resorts to celebrate your new year of life. Get a flossy Instagram pic at the Sofitel pool or check out one of the many day cruises and river safaris to see all the country has to offer.
4. New Orleans
Average Weather 66°
So it’s not the warmest city in the bunch, but after personally celebrating my big two five on Bourbon Street, I couldn’t leave it off the list. There is a party everywhere and every night in NOLA. When you top that with amazing cuisine and affordable prices, there’s truly no other place to go.
5. New Zealand
Average Weather 72°
New Zealand is a country filled with adventure. Head to Huka Falls for glorious waterfall views, Rotorua for some zorbing, or the Glowworm Caves for underground kayaking. Close out the night with birthday shots in Auckland and Queenstown for a real memorable (or not so memorable) vacay.
Average Weather 84°
Australia’s west coast suburb is a little known gem. Take a day trip to Rottnest Island for the perfect balance of sun and sand, then cruise down to Murray Street or Scarborough Beach to party like it’s your birthday… hold up it is.
Average Weather 88°
The LA of Asia is flooded with luxury shopping, rooftop bars, and sunny skies. Clark Quay has a strip of bars for a drunken scavenger hunt, while Sentosa beaches are perfect for zip-lining or bungee jumping.
Alright birthday girl, the world is your oyster. Be sure to let us know in the comments where you decide to celebrate your birthday!
