Seeking sun, sand, and surf

Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States
0 Kudos
Seeing sunshine in February after leaving snowy Syracuse was such a delight. I booked a last minute trip to fly down and stay for 5 days. All I wanted to do was soak up the sun and swim. I've never been to Fort Lauderdale before, but I found it very easy to get to places. I traveled alone, always felt safe, and enjoyed walking to places nearby. I walked the beach every morning with a cup of coffee in hand, laid out at the hotel's pool, swam, and just wished I lived there. Unfortunately, I had to return home and was greeted by a massive snow storm a week later. Ugh! I can hear Fort Lauderdale calling my name...

B Ocean Fort Lauderdale
This was an excellent location right on the beach. The hotel had many amenities including a bar, a restaurant, a deli, and a store. My room was very large, clean, and modern. I enjoyed my stay very much.


Bahia Cabana Restaurant & Bar
I had the best bbq ribs and potato salad here. I sat on the deck overlooking the water and watched the boats come and go. The wait staff were terrific. I would definitely go again.
Kelly's Landing New England Seafood
The lobster rangoon were delicious! This is a great little restaurant with outdoor seating also.


Hello Gorgeous!
This is a small women's boutique with clothes I would not typically find in Syracuse. I did spend a small fortune. Luckily, I left room in my suitcase!
East Las Olas Boulevard
There are plenty of places to shop and eat along this street. There are also historical sites and museums.
Sawgrass Mills Mall
After an afternoon of sun and swimming, I headed out to this outlet center. It was huge with so many stores I don't have anywhere near me at home. Too bad I had to limit what I bought because of my carry-on luggage.
