Does the cold weather and snow have you feeling down? Are you craving an escape? You need to get yourself to Florida! The Emerald Coast is full of cute, seaside towns that are sure to banish your winter blues! Although all of the towns are great for getaways, two in particular stand out as ideal winter destinations.
Seaside is an idyllic town with plentiful sun, surf, and sand! The streets are lined with shops selling unique goods, the food is fantastic, and the beaches are pristine. The town is gorgeous but also eclectic. You'll feel like you're in another world when you're there!
Seaside is less crowded in the winter, which is a huge bonus, but it is also more adorable in the winter! The town decorates for the holidays and the results are positively heartwarming. Rumor has it the sunsets are better in the winter!
