Sick of snow? Lobby for summer!

Have you spent too much of your winter digging out your car or shoveling a path down the driveway? Does the sight of a snowdrift make you cringe? Are you fed up with single-digit temperatures and weekly snowstorms?

If so, it's time to vote for summer! We're not really sure who created this hilarious faux-political campaign video attacking winter (paid for by "spring and fall"), but we're all about escaping cold weather right now. Watch the video below and then keep scrolling for some great, warm-weather deals.

Political campaign for summer:

While we wait for warmer seasons, here are a few deals to get you through the last of the chilly months:

How about a cruise to the Bahamas? Norwegian Cruise Lines' Norwegian Jewel sails from frigid New York City, stopping in Port Canaveral, Fla., as well as Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas. Imagine yourself relaxing onboard for seven nights starting at only $399 per person—plus government taxes and fees of $139. Keep in mind that all your meals, entertainment and port charges are included and you can book anytime.

Feeling a bit more adventurous? You could spend a long weekend in Turks & Caicos, starting at $560 for four nights at the Sands at Grace Bay. Instead of putting on two sweaters and a coat, break out that bathing suit and spend some time at one of their three swimming pools this winter.

For those of you who prefer domestic travel, there's always Hawaii. Pull out those flip flops and that cheesy Hawaiian shirt you've been hiding in the back of your closet and head to the island of Oahu for three nights at the Ocean Resort Hotel Waikiki. Airfare is included in this deal but you must travel between March 14 and April 22. Rates start at $440 per person with additional fees depending on which city you fly from.

So, how have you been coping this winter? If you could take a trip to a sunnier spot, where would you go?
