And activities are affordable there? I was avoiding FL because I felt that activities would be costly and wanted to get more bang for buck.
Not sure itís not like Miami tough

Looking for a warm destination in December in the continental us, not Miami area.
Would like a nice hotel that I can get a suite at since we will be travelling with our 2 year old. (I have Hyatt confirmed upgrades and Hilton Diamond). Was thinking Encinitas area, Alila, or PH.  Or Key West  Hyatt Residence. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hello fellow forums readers.

So I am currently in Jekyll Island. I think I have only seen it posted in the forums once or twice. If you are into remote destinations, then this place is a great option. After landing in Jacksonville, we went to Winn Dixie and Gilis Kitchen and have plenty of Kosher food for a week. Gilis has some of the best kosher food outside of Miami, NY, LA, Israel. There is a gorgeous Westin here that I highly recommend. This place does not have that many activities; there's a small water park, a turtle place and not much else. Great destination for a beach/pool bum.

Iíve got free tickets on Qatar I need to book today to anywhere they fly, but need to go through their hub (DOH).

Will have 5-6 days, travel time is already going to be tight just going to Doha (14hrs) and wife doesnít want to go to Maldives and have three planes to go through in case of emergency and need to get back. Suggestions?

Seychelles? Africa? Looked at Santorini which would be nice but already getting close to 30hrs each way for travelÖ

Seychelles sounds good. South Africa?

What time does it need to be booked by? Midnight in Doha? Or NYC?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Good point, not sure but still shows so probably Eastern.
Thinking Seychelles because the travel times maybe works better, but seems more limited in terms of point hotels. Tried to convince wife to go back to the Maldives but apparently thatís boring once youíve been there already  :o

Best European city with character for a couple to relax in for a few days. Kosher options a plus.

Thx. I'm debating between Amsterdam and Florence / Venice. I've been around a little, Venice would be the only of the three that I've been to though. For some reason I'm reticent to venture into Eastern Europe for leisure... Probably inherited that.
