The weather is finally breaking in New York, but nothing can compare to the sunshine and relaxation of a trip to Florida. Consider it your “Spring Fling” getaway, everyone needs their own version of Spring Break to relax & recharge. Personally, I need to sit on a beach at least once a month! #TravelObessed
Florida is the best getaway for anyone living in the NY, NJ and CT area, as it is a quick flight and easily accessible. The first place that usually pops in your head is Miami, but let me be clear, Fort Lauderdale is really the place to be. I believe that Fort Lauderdale has more of a relaxing environment, cleaner beaches, 5 star restaurants and wonderful hotels for families or a romantic weekend.
I had the pleasure of staying at the Sonesta Hotel, located directly on Fort Lauderdale’s beach. First let me start my saying what a great location the Sonesta is located in! You are in walking distance to some of the best restaurants, bars/night life and shopping the area has to offer. (no need to have a car when you stay here) The hotel itself has a great family-friendly atmosphere, yet can also be extremely romantic for a couples getaway. I loved the on-site outdoor pool and cabanas with a full pool bar, that really made me feel like I was “officially” on vacation.
Did I mentioned the INSANE views of the ocean from the rooms the Sonesta offers to guests? I would highly suggest staying in a King Corner Suite (picture located above). Waking up to the ocean, and watching the sunset at dawn from my window was an incredible experience. Overall, I would highly suggest this hotel for your next Florida trip. What are you waiting for?!
