Fares are cheapest out of New York, with the lowest round-trip flight we've found at just $299. For that price, it may be cheaper to fly to Greece than to Florida. Flights are operated with one stop by a number of carriers, but the best deals will be on Star Alliance carrier, Lufthansa.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or an OTA.
