If you're craving an exotic beach escape to one of the best islands in the world, then head to Florida. ...sound strange? That's because it is. While travelers usually hit Florida for its mainland party destinations like Miami and Daytona, they don't as readily take advantage of the many islands off its coast.
The ball has dropped, the champagne has popped and the partygoers have kissed. It's a new year. Now, it's time to think about your travel calendar. Before you know it, the planet will tilt and then you'll be roasting turkey and you don't want to think, "I never got to wear that harness." That would be tragic.
When I was kid, my grandparents left Long Island and moved to Florida. At first, I was incredulous. My grandparents moved so far away from me! (I had really thought that their world revolved around me. Apparently not.) But when we took our first trip down to visit them on a school break, I began to like the idea of having grandparents in Florida.
