This week’s show airs from a lesser-known Floridian coast…the Emerald Coast. Peter reports from the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort on airline consolidation, winter weather cancellations and new emerging airlines that will change the face of shuttle flights.
Plus, he’s also joined by a handful of locals who share highlights you might consider booking a ticket for, from Blue Marlin fishing to gumbo cooking. And, Florida is just a starting point for some exciting destination picks from author of the world’s best-selling travel book, Patricia Shultz.
