Naturally, Florida had to be on our list. With warm weather year-round, gorgeous, sandy dunes, and an abundance of shore excursions, Florida is an easy, and reliable, pick.
Ian Centrone, a freelance travel writer, suggests a cozy stay in Stuart, one of many quaint beach towns in the state. He has two suggestions in the area depending on your mood and the sort of vacay you have in mind.
His first recommendation is La Dolce Vita, a seven-bed, five-bath seaside paradise. The villa is so massive it sleeps 16 people, so it’s great for a family reunion or just a spacious, quiet getaway. The villa is on Hutchinson Island, sandwiched between the Indian River to the west and the Atlantic to the east.
“Surrounded by lush vegetation, this luxurious villa boasts sweeping views of the lapping waves and golden shores of the private beach below, offering a truly serene winter hideaway. Guests can even take advantage of complimentary kayaks, paddleboards, bicycles, fishing equipment, snorkel gear, and more,” said Centrone.
