Good budget destination for January between Washington D.C. & Miami

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going into the Peace Corps in early February and we don't yet know whether we will be leaving from Miami or Washington D.C., but it is likely to be one of these two cities. We won't have that information until early January. We want to spend some time before departing in the US (we are currently in Europe) in order to buy a few things before departure. We are looking for a good choice for a kind of "budget" city to stay for a week in late January, probably renting an apartment for a week, but possibly in something like a Homestead or other hotel with kitchen setup.

I have been looking at VRBO/HomeAway in places like Orlando (cheapish because so many places due to Disney I assume), Myrtle Beach, Savannah (seems very pricey), etc. Price isn't the only consideration-we would probably prefer some place warm versus really cold or where snow could be a factor. We really don't know this area at all since we are from California, so any thoughts of places where we might find good deals and enjoy being for a week or so in January in the southeast would be welcome.

Thanks in advance!
