The Beach, Fort Lauderdale
Favorite thing: A great place to let your inhibitions go. Walking down the beach in nothing but a thong or g-string swimsuit is the life and is quite regular. From time to time you will see topless girls soaking in the sun without problems. This applies to women and men. So go and enjoy yourself and work on the best tan possible.
One of the greatest things about Fort Lauderdale are the beaches. Although most of the beaches are public beaches, there are some private ones. Jason took me down to the beach just before the hurrican hit. The waves were beautiful and the wind refreshing with the hot son. My only complain would be that I didn't go for a swim due to the water's choppiness from the oncoming storm. It was very beautiful regardless. I took a stroll down the beach to collect my usual seashell while Jason went for some waters. I didn't notice that he was snapping pictures as I was walking back.
Fondest memory: Standing with Jason on the pier and looking out over the ocean.
Take a second and imagine your Honey Moon's best day ... Got it? Well, the day we went to Fort Lauderdale was exactly the opposite!
We had some inconvenience with our lugagge during the morning and nearly skipped going to Fort Lauderdale... but at last we did go and it ended up being the most romantic day of our Honey Moon !
So, remember , don't get discouraged because some things don't go "perfectly"in your trip , they may turn out to be just great!!!!!
Naturally my fondest memeory is the sand and surf!!! I am attracted to the water like a bee to honey!!! Florida has the prettiest beaches and I would guess the longest beach anywhere in the world. (if you stretch them all together). I have been to beaches all over the world, and my favorite are definitely in Florida.
You must see these in person to truly appreciate them.
The main beach of Fort Lauderdale has its own little 'Center' of some sort, yet there were people everywhere, even though the weather was kinda mild.
This beach reminds me alot of Manly Beach down in Sydney.
Go the beaches near Las Olas Boulevard...it's the best place to relax in Fort Lauderdale. You can also go to Flamingo Gardens...it's got about 60 acres of all kinds of wildlife...like gators, flamingos, and birds. My favorite was going to the Everglades...we got to feed about a dozen semi-wild gators and they would swim up within inches of the airboat we were in. They would eat marshmellows of all things. Go figure!
Fondest memory: The everglades
Hit a beach concert, even if they are some old band from the 50's its the beach and fun music (and most often free!) Rent some, or bring your own rollarblades too, and go around the main strip and hit the resturants and bars.
Fondest memory: The fourth of July parties on the beach, and the people who just said, 'hey want to join our barb-q?' Hey, free food and new people is always fun!
Fondest memory: My favourite part of this trip was just getting away to enjoy some sunshine. Especially the day spent at Dania Beach and John U. Lloyd State Recreation Area. It was warm and sunny, we sat on the beach watching and listening to the waves come in, absolutely peaceful.
Fondest memory: My favorite thing? The palm trees! None of those in the Midwest! You know, I do like living in the Midwest. It is so central to everything in the USA and therefore road trips become second nature but I love to see what other states have to offer and I think it's so cool! I guess that is why I love to travel so much!
Favorite thing: when you are in Fort Lauderdale, take advantag of the beautiful beach. It has recently had a $26 million dollar renovation.
Favorite thing: Nearby beach town Pompano beach, had alot less people, and it wasn't as lovely as its nearby friend Fort Lauderdale beach, yet its a nice resort type of place.
Favorite thing: Vegetate on the beach. This was definately a 'de-stress' holiday. While we did do a little clubbing, it was definately an afterthought.
