Where: Merritt Island and Palm Beach, Florida

When: November

With: Husband, parents and friends

Generally when we visit a new city, Miles and I like to pick a different neighborhood each day to wander around. So for our third day in Copenhagen, we decided to go to Christianshavn because it looked so cute from our boat tour the day before.
