This year I chose to enjoy my winter break in the Sunshine State: Florida! While here with my girlfriend and both our parents, we compiled a laundry list of fun things to do including a tour of the Everglades, a fair amount of golf, a sampling of fine restaurants, and a 1-day charter fishing trip along the mangroves (a highlight of my trip).
