5 Sunny Escapes for Bookworms

No matter where you are, dreaming of a sunny destination keeps you anxiously awaiting those first true summer days where the temperature is perfect, no chill breeze chases you, and sunshine caresses you with it's warmth without burning. Why wait for that beautifully perfect day when you can live it right now? Fortunately, us bookworms have a little secret.  The pleasure of indulging in a good book isn't just a nerdy habit or a way to practice avoidance. Reading truly transports us to another place and time. 
So, if you need to shake off the last vestiges of winter and yearn to get to that truly perfect day, here's 5 places you can go right now, without moving your feet.

1. Savannah, Georgia

Ok, so this scene happens in winter, but winter in Savannah is like summer in most places.

5. The Carolinas

Miles and miles of white sands beckon.

I ambled up the beach, water splashing around my ankles as I watched the sand swirl, a kaleidoscope of patterns wherever I stepped.
