Miami Beach, Florida: Hit the Beach

Nothing boots the winter blahs like catching up with your friends while sipping cocktails under the Miami sun. Book a private hotel cabana for the day and relax. Activities like paddleboarding, kayaking, and cycling along the beach are time well spent Be one of the beautiful people in South Beach. Take in the Art Deco scene there. Crandon Park Beach on Key Biscayne is a calm alternative to the SoBe scene, with walking and biking trails, beach-volleyball nets, shelters for shade, and barbecues. After dark, go for a drink in the ritzy hotel lobby of the Fontainebleau, Delano, or Eden Roc hotels, where there’s always something going on. At Tapas & Tintos, once the dinner crowd leaves, the tables are taken away and the salsa dancing begins.

Caribbean: Take a Cruise

Where else but on a cruise can you and your friends, married or not, loosen inhibitions and jump into a conga line (“feelin’ hot, hot, hot”) and ask a cabin butler to unpack your bags or pour your Merlot? Cruising with your friends is an easy vacation. It’s all-inclusive and the itinerary is already set. You can stick together or go separate ways before meeting up for dinner to swap stories.
One option is to take a cruise based around a theme you all love. Take a Broadway or country-music-themed cruise, baseball and football greats,, cruises with exclusive jewelry-shopping events, cruises for Christian women, and enrichment-themed cruises with lectures and workshops.
