2. Storm Waching - Head to Tofino, a town on the west shore of Vancouver Island. Witness 30-foot waves, rain and cold wind. (Hey, some people like it!) Deals are available at Mackenzie Beach Resort from $96 per night.

3. Lighting-up the Sky - Witness lightning up close and personal at The Lightning Field in New Mexico. A one-night stay in May in a cabin next to the field goes for $150 per night.

4. Ready for the worst weather? Mt. Washington holds that title, with wind speeds reaching a record 231 miles per hour in 1931. Travelers can sign up for day or overnight EduTrips that include lodging, meals, transport and classes at $459. Day trip entrance fees are $23.
