Charles McCool, McCool Travel ( Facebook : Instagram ) suggests Mississippi Gulf Coast. Someone should have told me years ago about this magical land with gorgeous beaches (with remarkable sunsets), 500 year old majestic oak trees, the freshest seafood to be found anywhere in the world (#BigShrimpin), and a funky artsy laid-back vibe.

Or a cocktail in one hand while I sit on a hotel balcony watching the sun set, followed by a seafood dinner at a beachside restaurant. Hotel Pass Christian sits top of my list in this regard, a new boutique hotel offering 10 comfortable coast-style rooms with the Elysian Salon
