For a winter getaway, head to Camelback Inn in Arizona's Sonoran Desert, where the daily highs average 75 degrees. Located on 125 acres in Paradise Valley, the inn offers private hiking trails and meditation areas and 453 guest rooms and suites. The Scottsdale property, a JW Marriott Resort & Spa, also has six all-weather lighted tennis courts, two 18-hole golf courses designed by Arthur Hills, and a spa offering loofah treatments, an adobe clay purification wrap, or a traditional massage. Five restaurants serve everything from Southwestern fare with a Mexican twist to American steakhouse cuisine with a French influence. Children can hang out at the kids' pool or playground. Rates from $279. 800-242-2635, http://www.camelbackinn.com
