Being in NYC during the winter can sometimes be the worst! If you haven’t walked in NYC while those freezing winds are hitting your face then you might not want to make a trip here in January or February. A lot of locals are gone during that season and come back closer to spring– I know, what a luxury!
Where Do New Yorkers Go?
Florida seems to be the place for the locals to go. The flight is only about 3-4 hours or so– depending where you go. I don’t know about you but that sounds better than 6.5 hours to LAX.
Lets Be Real
Of course in my case I couldn’t leave for a couple months, but I could leave for a couple weeks! Going from wool coats and scarves to swim shorts and tank tops and stepping in NYC slush to feeling the warm sand creep between your toes– sounds really good.
Where I went
I flew to Dustin, Fl. Stayed at a condo on the shore and had a very relaxing time. The great thing about Destin is that it’s not crowded. You don’t have to deal with all the tourism that you get in Miami. Trust me, coming from NYC you definitely want to stay as far away from tourist asking you for directions. Sometimes it’s nice to be the tourist for a change.
A friend suggested this city to me and said that it was a go-to spot when you need to destress and forget about your problems! Destin might seem quiet and deserted for those that live in smaller cities, but for us New Yorkers, quiet is unheard of. A nice little break from the rat race is kind of our guilty pleasure. So give Destin a shot when you can!
