Ponte Vedra Beach Selected as One of 10 Best Getaways in the World

 ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (Oct. 19) – Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, has been selected as one of the world’s top ten getaways without kids. Online travel adviser Cheapflights (www.cheapflights.com) issued their selections “in the spirit of parental sanity” and offered their list of best destinations for “grabbing a cocktail, kicking back and relaxing without the little rascals.” The list was distributed world wide by Reuters, the giant international news agency.  

Known for its outstanding golf, including the home of THE PLAYERS

Championship and the headquarters of the PGA Tour, Ponte Vedra is also the location of some of the world’s most outstanding resorts. Located between St. Augustine and Jacksonville on Florida’s Historic Coast, Ponte Vedra Beach has been long-known as a place of seaside luxury and pampering. Here’s how Cheapflights described it:

 

“You may think the only thing Ponte Vedra has to offer is a ridiculous golf scene – which it does – but that’s not the sole reason to visit this swanky coastal community. When not teeing off, visitors take full advantage of exquisite spa treatments offered at several multi-diamond spa resorts, hit around the tennis ball, stop off at beautifully-manicured beaches, check out quaint and unique shops, and partake in other activities you indulge in when the kids aren’t around. And no Ponte Vedra Beach experience goes without a look into the Spanish colonial history stretching back as far as 1513.”

 

The other nine destinations on Cheapflight’s best child-free getaways were: Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Lunenberg, Nova Scotia; St. Lucia, Antilles; Napa Valley, California; Portofino, Italy; Cozumel, Mexico; Stirling, Scotland; Valle Nevado, Chile; and Lavaux, Switzerland.

 

 

Located between Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, Florida’s Historic Coast offers authentic Old World charm, 42 miles of beaches, luxurious seaside resorts, world-renowned golf, historic hotels, charming bed and breakfast inns, fine dining, history on every street corner and the location of Ponce de Leon’s 1513 discovery of La Florida.
