Myrtle beach is very kid friendly. Most hotels have indoor waterparks, some have bowling, arcades, etc... I stayed at Dunes village resort, was great! It has 2 indoor waterparks that are excellent for kids... The beach will be too cold cuz its approx 50 degrees there, but can prob play in the sand.... Also its not too far from miami...

Nope, just pool/beach
Try one of the smaller islands in the Bahamas. (Not NAS). Some have direct flights from Florida or some you have to fly to NAS and a short cheap skip over from NAS. Its Zika free and you can find beautiful private beaches with nobody anywhere in sight. (not much to do other then beach). You will have to bring your own food.

Thanks! Looks interesting, what are the options for Shabbos?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I love checking out new places. Seeing as I’m not originally American, I would really like to do the 50 states.
I always had this idea to do with my family. Every summer 1 kid could choose any state. We fly/drive there and over a week or 2 we check out a couple of states surrounding it.
In Europe this is so much harder as you’d have to bring food wherever you go. In the US, you can get kosher food everywhere.
Good idea?

I love the idea but I think some states are probably pretty boring
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

If people live there it must have something interesting. I happen to like going to these ‘boring’ places just to see how other people live.

Would love any ideas about a not cold (warm is ideal, but 60-70 degrees works also), baby friendly destination in November. Celebrating wife's and 1 year old baby's birthday in early November and we'd love to take advantage of the free flight for baby.

What might be a good idea for sightseeing, culture, and possibly beach time? We live in Southern California and we're willing to go almost anywhere. We would have about 10 days and would like to keep airfare to about $750 per person.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Lol. Yes, you are correct. I failed to mention we have been a million times and we're going for our anniversary in August.

We're hoping to do something internationally and not in Mexico (we go there quite a bit also).

Sun-Thu, end of January. 2 days in Rome, the rest somewhere warm and relaxing. Nothing in particular, just a nice Airbnb villa with a pool or thereabouts.

Any suggestions? Southern Italy doesn't seem warm enough that time is the year. Maybe Greece? Southern Spain? I've never really looked at that part of the world...
