Aaand We're Back

vieques puerto rico

So it was 86 in Puerto Rico and it's 20 degrees in Chicago today ... just great. We jetted off to a little island off of San Juan called Vieques and let me tell you, this place is beautiful, I will share all of my favorites tomorrow (spoiler: there are wild horses!).  

The nice thing about Vieques is it's only a 4-5 hour flight from Chicago, so you don't need to take weeks off of work.

A few other nearby destinations totally worth heading to as we enter this second (!) polar vortex ...

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic – this place has amazing beaches and a rich culture, you can even visit their cocoa bean plantations.

• Nassau, Bahamas – you've probably heard of the massive wonderland called The Atlantis Resort, but did you know you can stay for (much) cheaper across the street and still have full access to all of those glorious pools?

• Without leaving the states, head to the super chill/hip/beautiful Soho Beach House in Miami. Every inch of this place is perfectly rustic yet polished, with their perfectly serene pool and full service beach front (bonus points for the amazing Cowshed products throughout).

Stay warm! (or get outta town).
