Sochi, Russia: Resort town that offers a bit of everything

SOCHI, Russia – “You really don't feel like you're in Russia when you're here."

With the palm trees blowing in the wind, and the sun shining off the water, it's hard to believe this is the same country associated with sub-zero temperatures and several feet of snow.

“It's quaint. It's not a huge city. Any huge sky scrappers they've had were recently built.”

Melinda Pitsaros is an event manager for Ludus Tours. She said Summers in Sochi are the best time to visit the city, giving you plenty of warm weather activities.

“There's amusement Parks, and hot springs, it's very warm on the coast. There's also Apartments you can rent throughout and stay as a family to come to the beach for the week, there's Bed & Breakfasts that revolve around the vacationing family.”

Not all warm weather fun, the nearby mountains provides plenty to do up in the clouds.

It's tough to find a place that offers Summer and Winter activities year-round, unfortunately due to the Winter Games, most of the those cold-weather activities, especially the ski slopes are being used.
