A Ladies' Culinary Getaway to Florida’s Gulf Coast: November 13-17, 2016 Hosted by The Cooking Cottage with Onward Travel
Our pre-holiday island getaway returns for the third year in a row - but this edition is our first ever officially ladies only trip! So grab a girlfriend, your mother or daughter or sister, or come along solo and ready to make new friends… this week of eating, shopping, learning and laughing, island style, is just the right slice of paradise...
Anna Maria Island is a beautiful barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico.
Cooking Cottage co-founder Peggi has moved to Florida and she loves it there! She’s spent the last few years discovering the best of the beach so let’s head down to the gorgeous Gulf Coast to visit her. Take in the white sand beaches, laid-back golf-cart vibes and mouthwatering coastal flavors that make Anna Maria Island such a wonderful place to be!
This year we’ll enjoy some of the same highlights as the last two years, while mixing in a few new experiences and adding an extra night! Our home base will be Tortuga Inn, located in the heart of picturesque Anna Maria Island. The beach is right across the street, so take a walk on the white sand and dip your toes into the pleasant Gulf of Mexico waves. This notoriously laid back island is beloved by all who visit, and it’s the perfect place to unwind, relax and reconnect. We’ll enjoy gourmet meals, a cooking class, boat ride, visit an amazingly unique town up the coast, and more…
Our NYC Shopping Trip the Sunday before Thanksgiving is a Cooking Cottage seasonal tradition and the best way to kick off the holidays! Stock up on festive treats for entertaining and pick up some delicious and interesting gifts for everyone on your list... We encourage coolers and stow them under the bus in the luggage hold, you'll have access to them throughout the day.
