Jamaica and Arizona are perfect winter destinations
I`m the first to show thin skin when the mercury drops, so I know that planning a warm-weather vacation can be a therapeutic way to soften the approach of winter. But I`m getting fussier. A long stretch of beach, by itself, is no longer enough to satisfy me—particularly if local character is lost to big-name hotels and chain restaurants. And booking an all-inclusive resort, no matter how posh, will seem too confining if the property is isolated. Those are my peeves, and you`ll have your own.
