Castillo de San Marcos St. Augustine, Florida

St. Augustine, Florida made the list of National Geographic Traveler’s World’s Top 20 Places to See. The northeast Florida city, founded in 1565, is one of only four locations in the United States included on the international list. National Geographic Traveler published the list the first week of January 2013.  National Geographic’s editors praised the city of St. Augustine for maintaining the genuine “old Florida” culture and charm and preserving its nearly 450-year-old history.   Editors specifically recommended the 17th century Castillo de San Marcos, which stands sentry over the pristine Bay front, and the Lightner Museum built by Henry Flagler in 1887 in the Spanish Renaissance style. Flagler College (the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, also built by Henry Flagler), which Princeton Review listed among the country’s most beautiful college campuses, was highlighted along with the pedestrian friendly Spanish colonial St. George Street and the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Florida’s first lighthouse.

On Sanibel Island, the most difficult choice you’ll have to make is deciding which direction to walk on the beach, and how big a pail to bring for shells. It is, in other words, an ideal destination for a relaxing holiday. Travel to a  Sanibel FL bed and breakfast is best when you are determined to leave all work at home.

Sanibel is considered to be one of the Top 10 North American Islands (Conde Nast Traveler). It’s sugar white sandy beaches are a magnet for shells, due to the east-west orientation of this barrier island (most of the barrier islands run north-south). Be sure to incorporate yoga – or at the very least a lengthy swim and nap on the beach – into a daily routine while on Sanibel, for scanning the beaches for sea shells inevitably leads to the Sanibel Stoop.
