The holiday hangover isn't just about too much eggnog, a few extra pounds and that ugly sweater from your Aunt Linda, it's something travel companies experience as well.
The weeks after the holidays represent a sweet spot of savings, when leisure travel dips from a holiday high and stays low until the beginning of the spring break ramp-up. Popular beach and ski destinations from Vail to the Virgin Islands are actually affordable in January, before rates start to spike in February and March.
We compiled a list of deals in sun and ski destinations, with savings up to 65%. Do don't let those 2013 vacation days go to waste, start off the year on the right foot (wearing flip-flops or ski boots).
