You've lived here long enough to develop an aversion to Bourbon Street. But get wise to a hidden gem nestled amongst the bars and souvenir shops with today's deal: Pay $15 for $30 to spend on food and drink at Rita's Tequila House. Rita's specializes in Tex-Mex cuisine and drinks not common among the tourist traps on Bourbon Street. Get started with a plate of Yuca Fries, which comes topped with homemade Queso, sour cream, fresh-chopped bacon, and pico de gallo. The restaurant also serves up a variety of fresh fajitas, quesadillas, and Mexican pizza, which comes piled high with your choice of freshly marinated meats, lettuce, queso, pico de gallo, and black olives. But with a name like Rita's Tequila House, the spirits are the star of the show: This Quarter establishment serves up more than 135 tequilas. Whether you're noshing on some Tex-Mex fare or sipping an exotic tequila, the candlelit courtyard is a world away from the rowdy Bourbon Street scene.

The Destination Home to a white-sand shoreline that sweeps into the Gulf of Mexico, Sandestin has an impressive view from its station in the center of the Florida Panhandle. As part of the area's Emerald Coast—named for the greenish blue hue of its calm currents—the town boasts plenty of action both on and off land. While fishermen cast their lines away from the shore, beachgoers spend their days parasailing, kayaking, and cruising on luxury liners. Further from the salty air, golfing, outlet shopping, and wine tasting make for plenty of fun in the sun. The Digs Located on a lush spread of 2,400 acres, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort was voted a Fodor's Choice property in 2011 and 2012 for being "its own little world." Upon arrival, hop aboard the resort's complimentary trolley service en route to your fully furnished condo before renting a pair of bicycles to cruise to the seven miles of beach and bay coastline. In the morning, practice your swing on one of the resort's four golf courses, set out on a hiking trail, or jump into one of four pools. As the sun sets, head to the resort's Baytowne Wharf, an open-air entertainment hub comprised of restaurants, art galleries, stores, and bars located just steps from your accommodations.
