I have to take my SIGNIFICANT vacation to go to a million out of state weddings in a row, so I am going to make Mr. Lover take a weekend trip to the beach with me.

We have the money, but not the time, and that's goddamn stupid. Our whole lives are going to pass us by while we waste vacations on our families.

I have lived in New Orleans 7 years but barely gone east to some of the beautiful beaches in Alabama and the Florida panhandle. Anyone want to give some travel advice/experience here? I want good food, and a pretty beach, and that's it. Where should I go?
