Discounted getaways to escape frigid temperatures

ST. LOUIS – If you're like us, you're dreaming of warmer climates during this latest arctic blast, so we decided to see how far two adults can get away on a limited budget.

This deal through CheapCaribbean.com gets two adults to Mexico for four all-inclusive nights for $959.
