Moms Just Wanna...Get a Break | 24 hours in Lido Key, FL

Friday, May 25, 2018

We all know that being a mom isn't easy.  I had been feeling really overwhelmed lately and needed a break in the worst way.  My sweet husband watched our girls and I headed to Lido Key, Florida with a couple of girlfriends.  We were only gone for twenty-four hours and it was just what we needed.

Even with a storm strolling in, we had a blast and you couldn't beat the view we had.  Shout out to Holiday Inn for accommodating us to a Gulf view room and delicious snacks.  The hotel is gorgeous and the perfect location for heading to the beach or walking over to St. Armands Circle for shopping, restaurants and spas.  Our room had that coastal feel that you want when vacationing on the water and we couldn't get over the chairs in the lobby.

There are so many incredible restaurants in St. Armands Circle that it was hard to decide where to go.  We stumbled upon The Terrace at Surf Shack and ended up staying there all night.  They had live music which was extremely entertaining and the food was delicious.  They have a large taco menu and we all tried different ones.  I had the Key West Cuban Scallops and Bangin Shrimp tacos.  Sooo good!  And of course, in true pregnancy fashion, I ended the night with turtle ice cream from Kilwans.  Yum!

I love that we didn't have to drive far to feel like we actually got time away from our kids.  I came back home feeling refreshed and recharged.  We stayed out late without the consequence of having to get up early.  It was nice to sleep in, drink my coffee hot and take a walk along the beach. 

This would also be the perfect spot for a romantic getaway and I definitely plan to go back with my husband.


  1. What a fabulous getaway! I'd love to take a girls' trip like this but my besties all live on the opposite side of the world. Maybe one day we'll need to do a trip to Hawaii so we can meet in the middle!
