Best Beach Destinations in Florida

Growing up in Florida all of my life, I have been to quite a few beaches along each coast. It amazes me how one stretch of ocean can be so different depending on where you decided to vacation. Each little beach town brings something different to the table and it really depends on what your goal is to accomplish during your stay.

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!
