Fort Lauderdale Travel Guide

My mom and I took a quick little trip to Fort Lauderdale a few weeks back and I hadn’t been there since I was about 5 years old. That’s where my dad grew up running the roads and my grandma still lives so it was fun to be back! I can’t wait to go back with my dad this year to see what kinds of trouble he made and where. LOL!

Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Ft. Lauderdale

This past week, my mom and I had the opportunity to go stay in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. We absolutely LOVED our time there. I’ve been to a lot of hotels on the Florida beaches and this one was by far my favorite! It’s one of the only beachfront, boutique resorts on the Fort Lauderdale beaches, without A1A and traffic between the rooms and water! That is what we loved so much about it – you literally walk right outside – and you have sand between your toes!

Our Anniversary Weekend at One Ocean

Lane and I had the best anniversary spending it at One Ocean, a boutique hotel in Atlantic Beach, Florida, and I don’t just say that because it is sponsored. I say this because we absolutely love the hotel, restaurant, and spa so much that we have been there multiple times! We love the aesthetic with calming blues and sea tones and we LOVE how it’s situated right on the beach for easy access.
