It seems Orlando's consistently warm weather and screaming good deals are reason enough for Northerners to come and defrost their frozen toes. On Friday, TripAdvisor announced that Orlando is the No. 1 winter travel destination for U.S. travelers – beating out Las Vegas, Cancun and Key West.

TripAdvisor mainly looked at search interest and average weekly cost. So, for Orlando, the week of Jan. 16-22 was listed as the least expensive winter week to visit, with an average cost of $1,870. Travelers would end up spending 14 percent less than if they booked during most expensive week, March 13-19.
