Scenic.  cooler than Brooklyn. I don't know what there is to do there.  Buut it's a shot drive from there to New Hampshire, with more things to do.
Vermont has alot to do. Teddy bear factory, nice farms so we did apple picking. I believe there were more factories over there as well.

Since there's no dedicated thread for Hunter mountains I'm posting here. Any ideas what to do in Hunter mountains when it rains? Any great indoor activities??

Bermuda apparently has beautiful snorkeling.
What else is there to do there?
Would you recommend it over a place like Cancun? 
What about shabbos? Would it be wise to stay over a shabbos?
Thanks!

I would recommend Bermuda over Cancun because it is a more relaxing place while Cancun is commercialized.  Cancun is easier for Shabbos if you want a minyan and kosher food because Bermuda has no minyan and very little kosher food just in the supermarkets

Looking for something zika free

For pesach there are so many programs but for sukkos almost nothing

Jan time for a couple, for 1.5 weeks
Prefer some water/beach and some activities to do.
Not Thailand or South Africa

(ability to find mileage availability for J or F would be a + ;D)

There is a program in South of Spain, close to Seville and Gibraltar. It's run by Kdeluxe.

I've stayed at this hotel (with a different program) couple of years ago and it's stunning - just a bit of a shlep when flying from the US.

What are your other requirements ---- budget, food, minyan, travel time etc....
Mexico/ Central America, Hawaii, New Zealand/ Australia, Caribbean (lots of places) and the list goes on.
