A must is 1500 South, which opened in March 2016 under the course of James Beard Award winner Art Smith. Naples is also the jumping-off level from which to explore Marco Island, the largest of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands. Visit the masterful Wynwood Walls or the innovative art at the Institute of Contemporary Art — each are free to enjoy. It may be the obvious Florida suggestion, but it can’t be denied that Miami is doubtless certainly one of the state’s greatest locations for a weekend getaway. Weather alone puts it into the working with deliciously warm temperatures in the winter. I grew up in California and there’s a lot right here for me still to explore!
