pelicanSpring is here. Well, maybe not officially, but if the crocuses, daffodils, and forsythia are any indication – it’s Springtime! So it’s not too early to start planning your summer trips. And if you are looking for a bargain – you might want to consider Floridain the summer time. Summer in Greater Fort Lauderdale is “super” easy, “super” fun and “super” affordable. Because beginning May 1 – September 30, Greater Fort Lauderdale offers savings with 2-for-1 specials at attractions all over the place with their ‘Super Summer Savings’ program.Some of the finest beachfront resorts in the country are in Ft Lauderdale, and generally speaking, their rates are whole lot lower May through September than they are September through April. Airfares are lower, too – with flights from over 50 U.S. destinations.

And once you get there, there’s a lot to do: 34,000 accommodations at a variety of hotels, luxury spa resorts, and Superior Small Lodgings reflecting a “beach chic” vibe, 23 miles on beaches, 300+ miles of Inland waterways, thousands of restaurants, and pretty active arts and culture scene,and of course: SHOPPING!

The 2-for-1 Super Summer Savings program provides visitors with options to play, explore, relax do everything from kayak, and paddleboard. scuba, spa or sightsee. Kids will love getting up close and personal with sharks at the new and exciting SHARK exhibit at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale.

Will it be hot and humid? well, yes. But Florida is nothing if not air conditioned. And there’s all that ocean to dive into to cool yourself off. Another benefit? Fewer crowds, and business owners and restauranteurs happy happy happy to see you.

Sounds like a good vacation to me.
