Deerfield Beach: Experience the beauty of South Florida’s beaches without the crowds. With its small-town vibe, Deerfield Beach is a best-kept secret. Excellent water quality, beach conditions and conservation policies earned Deerfield Beach a “Blue Wave” designation from the Clean Beach Council. Though life at Deerfield Beach moves at a slower pace than some other South Florida destinations, there’s no shortage of things to do. Take a break from the beach and explore the variety of dining and shopping options around town.
Pompano Beach: “The Heart of the Gold Coast” beats between Palm Beach and Miami. Pompano Beach is known for its aquatic activities with a little something for everyone. Scuba divers and snorkelers explore living coral reefs up close. Anglers cast along a 1000-foot-long municipal fishing pier. Families gather at grills and picnic tables, as children climb on beachside playgrounds. Enjoy fine dining and shopping year-round.
Fort Lauderdale Beach: World-famous Fort Lauderdale has shed its reputation as Spring Break Party Central for unruly coeds. The newly-renovated beach is now a family-friendly destination where visitors can swim, jet ski, snorkel and dive in the clear-blue water – or simply stroll along the wave wall and palm-lined promenade. Stop at any of the colorful array of shops and cafes along the coast.
