South Beach Wine & Food Festival

While the rest of the country begins to freeze as the winter season looms, Miami stays bright and sunny for its annual wine and food festival each February. Avoid winter’s chill by soaking up a few more days of warmth and sampling some of the region’s best grub from local chefs, wineries and breweries.

Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Save money on expensive plane tickets to Europe or Asia, and visit Orlando, Fla., instead. For six weeks, Walt Disney World’s Epcot park serves food and wine from more than 25 countries, and also hosts cooking classes and wine tastings for park-goers who have a bit of wanderlust.



New Orleans Wine & Food Experience

Looking to eat well and do a bit of good for others? This May will mark this festival’s 25th year of serving international food and drinks to its attendees while also giving part of its proceeds to local causes.
