Watercolor, Florida, Destin
Here's a great place in the panhandle area of Florida. They say the sand is like sugar, and they are so right. The WaterColor Inn was our choice of hotel there, and we were definitely pleased with our choice. The hotel has a great beachy feel (as it should, since it is on one of the most pristine beaches on the east coast), the price was definitely affordable (I would put it in the upper medium cost level), and the location was fantastic.
There is plenty to do, an easy walk to the town, with plenty of bars, stores, restaraunts. Easy to get to, plenty of airlines fly to the panhandle area, it's in Destin, so depending on where you are coming from, you have a couple of choices on where to land.
Since it's North Florida, it's a bit cooler than what you would expect, depending on the time of year, so check the weather. The water is turquoise, and the sand is the color and texture of sugar. Plenty of areas to walk and be alone, or share with your other half. Take a good book and relax.
Here are some pictures of the WaterColor Inn and the beach.
