4. Marco Island
Southwest Florida has the distinction of having the same great weather as Greater Miami, without actually having to BE Greater Miami. Which means 85 degrees in December, but no traffic, low crime, nice people, and soft, white sand beaches leading to clear, turquoise water. It also means you’ll lower the average age of every restaurant you go into by a decade just walking through the door, and past downtown Naples, you won’t find a whole lot to do other than enjoy the beach and paddleboard around.
Where you’re staying: Marco Island Marriott, which in addition to being the top hotel on this picturesque resort island, also has a Workspace on Demand program that'll rent you a chickee hut for business meetings.
