A Day Trip Away

One of the best parts about staying in the Greater Fort Lauderdale Area is how central it is to all the best Florida attractions. While there are plenty of things to explore right near the resort, getting out there to everything in Florida can be just as rewarding as staying around the resort. Take a look at some of the biggest attractions you’ll be able to visit!


Everybody knows what to expect from Miami. Glittering shores, rich culture, tropical weather, and a nightlife that will blow you away. Miami is full of Latin music, cutting edge dining, beautiful architecture, and plenty of cultural sites. Spend some time visiting places like the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Freedom Tower, Venetian Pool, Ancient Spanish Monastery, and Gesu Church! Get down to South Beach to visit the Art Deco Historic District, where you can experience the art deco architecture, and even see the mansion where Gianni Versace lived. Check out local staple restaurants like Joe’s Stone Crab, La Camaronera Seafood, La Carreta, Knaus Berry Farm and so many others! You can even cruise down the boulevard or spend some time on the famous Miami Beach working on your tan. Miami is an experience that you will never forget.

Disney World

What else is there to say. One of the most popular destinations in the world, let alone just Florida. Full of parks with endless rides, live entertainment, food, shows, safaris, and even more than you could even imagine. There’s a reason Disney is known for its magic. Explore Epcot and all of the different parts of the world and cultures contained within (and even see It’s a Small World in person). Visit the Animal Kingdom for the fastest and biggest ride in the park, Mt. Everest, and explore the kingdom of animals. Or visit the classic, Magic Kingdom, and watch any kids’ dreams come true when they meet all of their favorite characters. Disney also offers a vibrant night-life scene at Downtown Disney, if you’re interested. Filled with restaurants, shops, and shows Downtown Disney can be a feast for the eyes, ears, and taste buds!

Universal Orlando

If you’re looking for a little more action than magic, then look forward to one of the best theme parks around. Divided into three parks, there is a lot to discover, and each part will give you a tailored experience! Islands of Adventure contains the most traditional rides ranging from the Incredible Hulk Rollercoaster, Spiderman, and Jurassic Park! You’ll also be able to experience Hogsmeade in part of the Harry Potter World experience! The Universal Studios Orlando park is also full of experience such as shows and many of their 3-D/4-D experiences, and you’ll also be able to ride on the Rockit Rollercoaster! If you’re looking to cool off, you can find Universal’s Volcano Bay Waterpark close by! Full of slides, water coasters, lazy rivers, and so many more aquatic attractions. It is the ideal place to beat the heat during the hot summer months in Florida.
