Springtime Travel – In Vogue

Dean, of ProperKidProblems.com, is a Fashion expert and travel maven.  See below for his favorite spring travel destinations and a photo of his top fashion picks for each of the cities.

With winter finally behind us, it’s time to think about spring travel.  Whether you’re headed to the “Big Apple” or the mountains of North Carolina, I’ve put together a quick list of stops in three of my favorite cities.  After all, no vacation is complete without an awesome brunch, a dash of regional culture and some down time without a notification from our beloved iPhone…

St. Petersburg, Florida

  • Brunch. From Key Lime Pie to PB&J, Lighthouse Doughnuts has just about any and every flavor you can think of when it comes to our favorite breakfast food dessert.  Make sure you go early because demand can be high – especially on the weekends.
  • Culture. Whether you seek a little history or a snorkeling adventure off one of Florida’s sandbars, you can’t go wrong with a day at one of America’s Top Beaches.  Who knows, you might even get lucky and have a manatee or dolphin sighting within one of the bays.
  • Chill.  We all need a day (or a week) when we can sit by the pool and soak up the sun with a good book.   From poolside service that includes complimentary drinks and sunscreen to beach beds on the brilliantly combed white sand, The Don Cesar takes “beach bumming” to a whole new level.

New York, New York

  • Brunch.  New Yorkers take Brunch seriously so book in advance.  Great spots include Sarabeth’s next to Central Park, Balthazar in SOHO, or one of The Smith’s numerous locations.
  • Culture.   Whether it be attending Open Rehearsal at the New York Philharmonic; taking a spontaneous lesson in the art of flight at The Trapeze School New York; or walking The Highline in Meatpacking, take a chance and do something interesting that will make for a memorable take-home story.
  • Chill.  Go see a Broadway Show where you can kick back in a plush velvet chair and enjoy a favorite – or new – production.

Asheville, North Carolina

  • Brunch.  Ashville is a foodie haven hosing well over 400+ restaurants within the city limits.  Top brunch/breakfast spots include Biscuit Head, Sunny Point Café, and Early Girl Eatry – just to name a few.
  • Culture.  Just 20 minutes north of Asheville lies Navitat – named one of the best zip line canopy tours in the nation.  Lasting just under three hours, the tour includes breathtaking views from 350 feet above the forest floor across ropes that stretch over 3,600+ feet.  No experience necessary – the tour is completely guided with instructors showing you the ropes from start to finish.
  • Chill.  Whether you enjoy the art of fishing or the art of sunbathing, Lake Lure is ideal for those warm afternoon days.  With vacation rentals right on the water that include access to boating and jet skiing, the town provides a quiet escape from the buzz of the city.
