Savannah. Charleston. Sanibel Island (FL). Jekyll Island (GA).

New Orleans is awesome too…a foodie’s dream!!

edited to add: Key West/the Keys. You don’t have to booze it up to have a fantastic time down there. Sunset boat trip, day trip to the Dry Tortugas (incredible!). Accommodations can be pricey so book way ahead of time to get a better deal.

Outer Banks, North Carolina. Go in April after Easter not in March. It is pleasant weather wise but not overly hot. Explore Duck, Corolla, Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills, NC. Great seafood, barbecue and other restaurants. Friendly people.Beautiful clean beaches.  It is presason so you can get reasonable hotels with indoor pools or private homes with Jacuzzis. Family oriented and friendly yet nice nightlife if you want to go out to listen to music. Nice shops. Fly into Norfolk, Virginia and rent a car. Virginia Beach/Norfolk are also nice for daytrips. Large Navy base there. Art museums, etc.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We’ve stayed at the Harbor Beach Marriott twice and loved it each time!

zwimmerz :  Congrats!! 

I second the New Orleans vote because it is my absolute favorite city. There’s so much good food and so much to do. I don’t even drink and I love it!

For a more beach vibe I think Hilton Head Island is gorgeous. And on the west coast I would suggest Huntington Beach. I can’t remember as much with HH Island but I’m fairly local to Huntington Beach now and there’s so much you can do without a car! There are shops and restaurants, beach activities and they even built a brand new shopping center that is super nice with higher end stores.

I would go to the west coast of Florida, specifically Sarasota (Siesta Key Beach) or Clearwater. The beaches are super nice and the vibe is more laid back and less crowded than the east coast of Florida. Major airport would be to fly to is Tampa and rent a car from there.

Sounds like CA would be great for you! San Diego and Santa Barbara are both fab (though I’d be sad to go to Santa Barbara and not drink wine)

I recommend L’Auberge Del Mar (north of San Diego) for a resort. It’s ocean side and beautiful, walking distance to lots of great restaurants and a cute downtown area, gorgeous pool and amazing spa

if you are okay will high 60s, low 70s weather then San Diego is a really nice place to visit. You could look at an Airbnb in the north park neighborhood which has tons of yummy restaurants, is near Balboa Park and an Uber away from Little Italy/downtown and Coronado beach. Pacific Beach is a very beachy neighborhood. There’s a boardwalk and lots of restaurants. 

 Venice Beach in LA is very trendy, great food and close to the beach. might be a bit of a stretch on your budget though. 

New Orleans would be a blast, more affordable than California and the food is so yummy!

If you’re outdoorsy, Sedona Arizona is really beautiful, but you would need to rent a car as it’s a bit of a drive from any main airports.
