A warm vacation in direct-flight from MSP

Minnesota winter has drained me of the will to live. Help me find a warm, US vacation. Criteria inside.
Warm. Above 60 is fine.
I have some specific criteria for this, mostly revolving around that fact that this will be my first plane ride in almost 10 years. I'm terrified of flying, but I'm more terrified of not seeing the sun again, so here we are. (As a note, I don't need any help with the flight phobia - I have coping skills covered for that).
Beach town would be a plus, but not necessary. I don't need to go in the water, but it would be nice to be near it.
In the continental US.
Direct flight from Minneapolis/St. Paul. I want to make the flying/traveling portion as stress-free as possible because I'm the worst on planes.
I don't care about hiking, sports, special attractions or anything physical. I just need to drink, eat and be warm somewhere. The only attraction I care about is liquor.
Safe enough for an inexperienced, single traveler
I'm a liberal 30-something woman who likes music, art, theater, history and did I mention liquor.
What say you, MeFi? I'll take anything at just about any price range. The only city I'm not too interested in is Vegas, which I know would fit some of my criteria there. I want to leave in the next month. My work schedule is flexible and I can work from anywhere, so I can take off whenever the timing is right.
