We are a couple in our early/mid 40s who need a 4 day getaway for some R&R. We have been to Key West and LOVED the fresh fish (we're foodies), small town feel and shopping and dining options.
We will have a car (if we can get a deal). I want to book soon to let my husband's boss know he'll be off (surprise for DH). It's our first time in this area; been to the Keys (loved it all), Orlando area and Ft. Lauderdale/Miami areas (loved too, but looking for different feel - too much big city).
We're looking for the following:
~will get a hotel or willing to rent a place right on the beach perhaps to have a kitchenette/walk out to beach/privacy
~nice pool (overlooking beach or close to beach)
~access to great local dining (fish)
~will drive out one evening for outlet shopping
~evening neighborhood walk around/drinks/dining (not a requirement; we could drive there one or two nights if it is within an hour)
Someone mentioned Siesta Key area to us, but on a map it looks far from anything. We'll take suggestions even if it doesn't meet all the criteria; I am willing to negotiate on criteria.Edited: 9:17 am, March 16, 2013
