Have you forgotten what the sun feels like? Are you tired of being cooped up in your house as you slowly watch the first pristine snowfall turn into gray slush? If so, maybe it’s time to head to sunny Florida for a winter vacation.

We have five ways you can escape the cold with a trip to Universal Orlando Resort.

1. Visit an Island Paradise at Universal’s Volcano Bay

Universal’s Volcano Bay has heated water throughout the park during the seasonal times — no doubt heated by the Krakatau Volcano. Imagine floating through 85 degree waves at Waturi Beach as palm trees sway and you’re soaking up the sun. Also, if you seek the island thrill you can also drop 125 feet on Ko’okiri Body Plunge.

2. Explore Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure Without Breaking a Sweat

Plus, did we mention they’re all close in proximity to the parks and include complimentary transportation?!

4. Explore Dining and Entertainment Options at Universal CityWalk Without Shoveling Through Snow

Break away from shoveling snow and shovel food into your mouth instead at Universal CityWalk. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy decadent milkshakes from The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, sport fans can enjoy a cold one (or two) and watch their favorite team at NBC Sports Grill & Brew, foodie lovers can try “Burgushi”, a fusion of burger and sushi from The Cowfish Burger Bar. With 25 different dining options, there’s something for everyone! Make sure you also check out the entertainment like the dueling pianos at Pat O’Brien’s.

5. Relax and Enjoy the Complimentary Transportation
