With the blustering winter in full swing, it’s time to click your heels and go to Florida.

Resort credit can be used at any of the onsite restaurants, at the Meadows Golf Course or Nicklaus Design Golf Course, and at the Serenity Spa.

About the Hotel: The only Marriott on the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2009 Gold List for U.S. Resorts, the posh Bay Point Marriott was built around a wildlife preserve, right on the shores of Panama City Beach, with gorgeous views of St. Andrew’s Bay. This 316-room resort (including 60 golf villas) features spacious accommodations with flat-panel cable televisions, mini-refrigerators, balconies and porches, seasonal in-room dining, and creative options like blackened grouper and grilled rib eye with herbed maple gastrique on the menus in the resort restaurants.
If you don’t feel like lounging by one of the three palm-tree-lined outdoor pools, indulging in a Serenity Spa day, or perfecting your backswing, you can hit the tennis courts, rent a fishing boat, go parasailing and kayaking, or take a dolphin excursion tour. Pier Park outdoor shopping mall is only a few miles away, housing boutique, one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants.
