Oh look, another cold snap. Lets think warm thoughts and take a look at two sunny destinations you can get to from the St. Cloud Regional Airport!

Mesa, Arizona

With highs in the upper 60's this time of year, regional parks, hiking trails, golf courses, historic sites and more, Mesa is the perfect long weekend getaway. Mesa is only a 26 minute drive to Phoenix and a short 2 hour drive up to Sedona. There is plenty to do within a short distance of touchdown!


Punta Gorda, Florida 

Temperatures are in the high 70's and low 80's this time of year in Punta Gorda. So if you are looking to escape the cold for the week and soak up some major sun, this is the destination for you! A restored historic district, waterside shopping, military heritage museum, a wildlife sanctuary, walking tours, and more all await you in Punta Gorda! 

Excuse me while I go book a flight. Keep thinking warm thoughts and spring will be here before we know it!
