There's something to be said for the land down under. There's the attractive people, the beautiful beaches, the cool accents and, of course, the fact that their summer is during our winter.

If you're looking to escape the rain, wind, and snow that comes with the season, Sydney is the perfect getaway. One of Australia's largest cities, it's full of incredible food, thriving nightlife, and (notice this coming up again) plenty of beaches to catch some sun. Of course, it also helps that it recently ranked as one of the world's safest cities and has ridiculously-huge milkshakes. Though, if you're going all-in, better make note that the Aussie's call them freakshakes.
