New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – If you’re looking to escape the winter cold, Florida’s Paradise Coast might be exactly what you’re looking for. CT Style Host Natasha Lubczenko recently spoke with Paul Beirnes, Executive Director of Naples, Marco Island Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau about the sun and the sand in that area, and what you can expect to see right now.

Paul describes Southwest Florida as truly warm and inviting, and he tells our viewers about some of the features of this area that really set the destination apart, and why Connecticut folks might want to come give Paradise Coast a try.

He says, “We have 30 miles of white sand beaches, like ribbon, running all along southwest Florida. We are actually located just below Fort Myers, running through the towns of Naples, Marco Island, and Everglades, an absolutely spectacular area.” “What’s really unique about this destination is, over the last 50 years, so many people have moved down here and the destination has grown in its maturity. Whether it’s dining, shopping, arts, culture and of course, as I mentioned earlier, spectacular beaches.”
