THROUGHOUT THE PANDEMIC, it’s fair to say that travel has been well-missed by most New Orleanians. Flights were canceled, planned rearranged and trips postponed.

This spring and summer welcomes hope of travel so dust off that luggage! For planning— whether some time in the sand or a bigger adventure afar—the below are options to get you started.

DESTIN BEACHES OFFER GREAT ESCAPE
Spring is in the air and everyone is ready to enjoy the outdoors. And what better place to breath in fresh air and feel the sunshine on your skin than the beach? While there are many beach options, many New Orleanians have discovered the beaches of 30A, Miramar Beach and Destin are worthy of the drive.

The upscale Gulf-front condominium features spacious two- and three-bedroom condos with large balconies overlooking the beach. The Gulf-front pool and hot tub, lighted tennis court, and dedicated beach access create a dreamy coastal escape.
