It's frigidly cold here in Boston—the temperature hasn't made it out of the teens as of late—so it really shouldn't surprise you that we've got warm, sunny, tropical (you get the point) locales on our minds. Last week, we wrote this piece on escaping winter in Virgin Gorda. And then it hit us—how do you escape winter if you don't have a passport? Well, your first order of business is to get one. Honestly, we couldn't even live without ours. But that doesn't mean that while you wait, you're limited to the 50 states when it comes to finding a place to thaw out. As long as you have a valid photo ID, you're free to explore these U.S. territories:

  • American Samoa (located in the South Pacific Ocean)
  • Guam (located in the western Pacific Ocean)
  • Marianas (located in the Pacific Ocean, south of Japan)
  • Puerto Rico
  • U.S. Virgin Islands

Bon voyage!
