For the full tourist experience, splurge on a weekend getaway that’s not too far from home but has all the amenities of an exotic escape. Part of the Opal Collection, Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa’s newly renovated rooms are up to 30 percent off for Florida residents and include access to tennis and pickleball courts, a peaceful pool and hot tub, seasonal spa treatments, and beachside chair and towel service. Bonus: The resort is dog-friendly! Be sure to make a reservation at the new ocean-side Latitudes restaurant or have lunch alfresco at the more casual Sandbar, where the waitstaff can deliver a sandwich or cocktail right to your beach chair. 

At PGA National Resort, choose from 21 new cottages designed by Serena & Lily or a resort guest room or suite; Florida residents receive 15 percent off reservations. PGA is a one-stop food mecca, with three stellar restaurants right on the property. James Beard–nominated Chef Jeremy Ford serves up perfect steaks and more at The Butcher’s Club, Chef Lindsay Autry brings Southern comfort at Honeybelle, and Birdie’s Diner offers classic Americana fare. If golf is your jam, need we say more? With six on-site courses to choose from and special golf experience packages (see “Hit the Links” on page 58), PGA National is a golfer’s dream.

Guests seeking R&R after a day of golf (or those who just want to indulge in some self-care) can enjoy the newly reimagined 40,000-square-foot Spa at PGA National Resort. Relax in the Himalayan salt rooms, enjoy a 50-minute Watsu therapy session, refresh your skin with a customized HydraFacial treatment, or soak in the spa’s mineral pools. The 50-minute Golfer’s Massage loosens stiff hips and shoulders using acupressure techniques and stretching to improve your golf swing and enhance flexibility. The resort’s Signature Spa Experience package includes a daily $200 spa credit, guest room or suite accommodations, and exclusive access to other resort amenities.
