South Beach Wine & Food Festival

While the rest of the country begins to freeze as the winter season looms, Miami stays bright and sunny for its annual wine and food festival each February. Avoid winter’s chill by soaking up a few more days of warmth and sampling some of the region’s best grub from local chefs, wineries and breweries.

Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Save money on expensive plane tickets to Europe or Asia, and visit Orlando, Fla., instead. For six weeks, Walt Disney World’s Epcot park serves food and wine from more than 25 countries, and also hosts cooking classes and wine tastings for park-goers who have a bit of wanderlust.



New Orleans Wine & Food Experience

Looking to eat well and do a bit of good for others? This May will mark this festival’s 25th year of serving international food and drinks to its attendees while also giving part of its proceeds to local causes.

Top Lightweight Coats for Spring

As spring comes around in full force, people opt for a lighter coat that can protect them from the wind and rain of the season. In the beginning, there are still cold days to get through, but, as the weather shifts, it becomes more unpredictable with bouts of rain and sunshine. This unpredictable weather can make it hard to know how to dress properly, but it’s always a safe bet to own a couple light and versatile jackets to get through the season. Lightweight coats don’t need to be expensive to be effective. Many buyers will opt to buy less expensive coats because they don’t get used often. However, any coat purchased for spring weather will also be useful in the fall.

Here are six places to go without leaving the country for an awesome Cinco de Mayo 2019.
