Why go anywhere else when you already live in paradise?
Oleta River State Park
If you love the great outdoors, enjoy an active lifestyle, or just want somewhere to unwind, this natural enclave is the perfect choice. Located in North Miami near Sunny Isles Beach and Aventura, the park spans over 1,000 acres of pristine subtropical environment. Its namesake river is one of the best places to canoe and kayak, with access to the Intracoastal Waterway and Biscayne Bay. The park also boasts some of the best wilderness bike trails, as well as prominent triathlons and other extreme sports. Other highlights include a bayfront beach, cabins for overnight stays, and an outdoor center for renting kayaks and other equipment.
Las Olas Boulevard
Fort Lauderdale’s main thoroughfare, Las Olas runs from Andrews Avenue in the Central Business District to A1A and Fort Lauderdale Beach. Its one-mile stretch of commercial venues includes lively breezeways and courtyards full of bars, nightclubs, boutiques, art galleries, and fine dining establishments. Cultural attractions include ten major international art galleries, two world-class museums, and the historic Riverside Hotel, which includes the original 1930s structure and a modern tower. A weekend stay at this cultural landmark will give you immediate access to the multitude of attractions in and around the area. There is something to find with every stroll.
The international capital of cool, South Beach, aka SOBE, is the leisure destination of choice for millions of visitors from around the world – and it is just right at your front door! This lively and cosmopolitan community has something for everyone, from its world-famous beachfront to the world-class clubs and lounges that line iconic Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue. Check out the largest collection of Art Deco architecture, or visit one of several museums that commemorate everything from Jewish heritage to modern art and local talents. South Pointe Park and its newly renovated pier offer a nice place to unwind and exercise, while Lincoln Road ranks as one of the region’s most popular open-air malls. The wide selection of colorful boutique condos, as well as modern resort-style high-rises, means there will be somewhere to stay for every price point and preference.
These are just a couple of the highlights of where you can vacation closer to home. If you lived in South Florida, you could enjoy all this from the comfort of your residence.
