@wanderswithyouembedded via

Sometimes Vegas is the perfect escape--especially when you stay in a gorgeous hotel for an insanely affordable price. This package includes roundtrip airfare and hotel, leaving you plenty of money for the casinos! What better way to end a trip than coming home with more money than you arrived with?

Okay, so we know that's not likely to happen, but on the upside, they do give free drinks if you sit at the slot machines long enough!

Unwind in Los Cabos

Price: From $649 per personDuration: 5 nights

@secretlifeofaggieembedded via

This oceanfront resort gets you all the benefits of a foreign beach escape without the sticker shock. Once you arrive, everything you need is covered in the cost, including fresh seafood, theme parties, pool time, and margaritas to your heart's content (or your liver's threshold).

@coraskinnerembedded via

These funky woven loungers will keep you comfy between dips in the pool. After a few pitchers of margaritas, you can just slip into a siesta here until someone eventually shakes you back to consciousness. The ocean is a short stroll from the resort if you can make it--close enough to walk out barefoot wearing nothing but a swimsuit and a smile--and there are more chairs on the sand ready for beach lounging and further napping.

This trip is truly one for the bucket list. It has a 4.5 rating from over a thousand traveler reviews. Explore Hong Kong and Taiwan with seasoned guides to give cultural context to destinations as you experience them.

Activities include visiting a Buddhist monastery, exploring Kenting National Park, and visiting the Liuhe Night Market in Kaohsiung (pictured below). This market opens at 6 pm and reveals a nightlife unlike anything in Washington--where tourists shop at night for handmade crafts, cameras, knives, fresh seafood, and even live animals. While we don't recommend buying any live animals, this popular attraction is sure to offer some intriguing options for souvenirs.

See the Northern Lights in Alaska

Price: From $1,349 per personDuration: 5 nights

@myfast24embedded via

Witnessing the Northern Lights is one of the most spectacular and rare phenomena that a person can see in a lifetime. On this trip, you'll see them on two different evenings from two separate locations, allowing two opportunities to capture this incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience. So, for you, this will be a twice-in-a-lifetime experience!

Also known as "Aurora borealis" in the northern hemisphere (and "Aurora australis" in the southern hemisphere), this otherworldly light display is caused by electrically charged particles from the sun colliding as they enter Earth's atmosphere. Pink and green are the most common colors, but purple, red, and blue have also been reported. With two chances to view them, you're likely to see a range of colors.

@taynatonetteembedded via

You'll also get to see rural Alaska from the famous Alaskan Railroad and visit wildlife at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center or the zoo, depending on your travel dates.

Stay on the famous Queen Mary boat in Long Beach

Price: From $413 per personDuration: 4 nights

@jsforthegoodlifeembedded via

This vacation from Cheap Tickets is an ideal winter getaway for those of us in the chilly PNW. You'll get to enjoy the Calfornia sun without the fast-paced bustle of Los Angeles--although it could be a fun day trip if you want to rent a car while you're there!

The price includes airfare, plus four nights on the historic Queen Mary--a luxury ship built in the 1930's that's hosted such guests as Bob Hope and Winston Churchill and carried troops in World War II before retiring to the harbor in Long Beach.

@thequeenmaryembedded via

The ship now serves as a floating hotel and event venue. A visit to the Queen Mary at Christmastime is especially festive, with the vintage charm of the boat coming to life with vibrant decorations and holiday entertainment.
