July 4th weekend – have you been to Bermuda, Islamorada, or St. Simons?

Jump to last reply

**(Also posting this on United States forum for Islamorada and St. Simons)
Due to working different shifts, etc. my BF and I have not had a July 4th weekend off together in years, until this year, so we’re looking to do a quick-ish getaway from Chicago. We’re looking at Bermuda, Islamorada, and St. Simons. We’re looking for lazy days at the beach/pool, eating & drinking in our suits, then just a nice place for dinner at night. We’re in our early 40’s with no children and are partial to adults only resorts, but are fine with family oriented as well if the amenities are there. I’m not asking which I should pick, as obviously that will need to be our call, but just looking to see if you’ve been there (particularly on the July 4th weekend), what the beaches are like (hearing Keys are rocky?), or even what you would recommend instead?
To give you an idea of price point & scale, we’re trying to stay under $400/night (Bermuda is more), moderate to high end. We’re looking at the following hotels:

Bermuda: Cambridge Beaches, Elbow Beach, Royal Palms
Islamorada: Ocean House, Casa Morada
St. Simons: Ocean Lodge, The King and Prince
