Start in Americaâ€™s First City, where the Bunnery Bakery & Cafe fi lls the air with the aroma of pastries and fresh bread. For a dose of history, visit the 17th-century Castillo de San Marcos National Monument; donâ€™t miss re-enactors in ornate Spanish military uniform as they fi re a cannon and antique muskets. Take a free tour of St. Augustine Distillery, a smallbatch vodka and gin producer housed in a circa-1907 ice plant, and refresh with Moscow Mules and grass-fed burgers at The Ice Plant Bar.
Rest your heads at the art-fi lled Casa Monica Hotel. In the a.m., motor two hours south to Orlando, where you can take a free yoga class at Lake Eola, catch a Broadway musical at the spanking-new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and dine on Florida oysters and farm-to-fork fare at The Rusty Spoon. Rest up at EO Inn, with views of Lake Eolaâ€™s fountain lights. Rise in the morning for the journey to Everglades National Park, where you can race through the mangroves and track gators with Captain Jackâ€™s Airboat Tours. Unpack the car and savor sparkling wine and sunset views on the wide beach of Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, just outside Naples. Youâ€™ve earned it.
On your last day in Vegas, tuck into brunch at chef Michael Minaâ€™s new resto, Bardot; the indulgent menu features a parfait layered with escargots and foie gras. Stumble out of your food coma and into the calm of Mandarin Orientalâ€™s spa, where the private, two-hour Double Happiness Ritual goes down in a candlelit couples suite. End your romp at Lâ€™Atelier de Joel Robuchon. The man at the helm is heralded as Franceâ€™s Chef of the Century, and Zagat named the restaurant the best in town.
