Sure, it's hot in the Caribbean in summer, but consider this: The average summer temperature in the U.S. Virgin Islands is 82 degrees, according to visitusvi.com, while the average temperature in July in Boston is - you got it, 82 degrees, according to weather.com It's just a matter of whether you want to be hot here or there - and there has some pretty good beaches to stay cool on.

And that includes the U.S. Virgin Islands, which offers a "Sizzlin' Sampler" this year, a summer package with $350 in savings, which includes a $200 instant credit towards any booking for a minimum five-night stay at participating hotels, along with $50 each in certificates for shopping, attractions and dining, and the fifth night free. The promotion can be booked through June 15 for travel between June 1 and Sept 30. It's available at participating hotels and can be booked through a number of tour operators using the booking code VISS12. For info, visit http://www.visitusvi.com/package_and_promotions
