Florida is to New Yorkers as water is to plants…LIFE SAVING (at least in colder months). A seasonal refuge for East Coasters… so much so that when northerners move south for the winter they are labeled, Snow Birds. Just be sure to avoid this paradise in late summer when it’s unbearably humid hurricane season!
I didn’t get to know Florida much when I lived in Los Angeles as the five hour flight seemed like a lifetime away and Vegas or Cabo so much more convenient. However, since moving to Manhattan I quickly learned the value and necessity of this close getaway! In just three hours you leave blizzards and bone chilling temperatures for sunny beaches and bold bikinis.
There are many cities to love in South Florida, including sexy Miami…But for me Palm Beach seems to stand out from the rest. A classy and exclusive destination with gorgeous beaches, luxurious spas, and delectable bites. Not the most budget friendly of places, but that’s what West Palm is for.
