Perfect for families wanting to escape the cold and make holiday memories in the Florida sunshine. Omni Amelia Island Plantation’s Winter Wonderland is fun for all ages with little ones loving Santa’s Workshop and the family-friendly splash deck on the largest pool deck in Northeast Florida, while parents enjoy luxury oceanfront accommodations, ten superb restaurants and lounges, 36 holes of championship golf and an award-winning tennis program and full-service salon and spa.

Everyone loves music, and this holiday season we’re paying homage to some of the masters of this universal language.

VIE had a great time at the #Baytowne Wharf Beer Festival at #Sandestin this weekend. This year’s event featured more than 60 breweries and the selection was incredible. We weren’t the only ones who thought so. The gorgeous fall weather, beautiful setting, and lively entertainment resulted in a strong turnout. The festival has become one of the “don’t-miss” events of the year and if you’ve never experienced it, we urge you to put next year’s festival on your calendars
