Traveling down to Florida and especially Fort Lauderdale and Miami is always an uplifting experience. It was here in MIami that I got to witness the New Orleans Saints win the Super Bowl. The entire week is still one of my personal highlights.
Fort Lauderdale is a great place to relax. The Ritz is highly recommended and their food is great. You also have to check out the Hard Rock Cafe. The operation is great. The staff extremely friendly and their restaurants are well managed.
If you like Italian food I would highly recommend Casa Di Angelo The food is awesome and the service is also terrific.
The bar scene is fun and for a great night out the Yacht Club is fun for drinks and food. Check out the Elbow Room for a fun night in a very casual setting with live music. Highly recommend a trip to Club Liv in Miami if you get the opportunity.
Fort Lauderdale is definitely worth a visit and if you want more excitement Miami is only 45 minutes away. Enjoy.
