Look Forward to a February Vacation to the Bahamas
February is cold in Canada, but that does not mean the rest of the world is. The month of St. Valentine has many other festivals and celebrations happening worldwide. Some places have sun-drenched sandy beaches, or wide-open hot savannahs, filled with wild animals. This makes for ideal February vacations. Some are far away, while others are a short flight away from Canada.
