Vacation: Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida

Pin It

Florida, where I have lived for over twenty years, is a fascinating state. Of course, it has wonderful weather, so many activities and fabulous wildlife but today,I’m writing about the small town of Lauderdale by the Sea. This is a wonderfully quaint resort and ideal for family vacations.

Close to Fort Lauderdale, as its name suggests, this is a low-rise resort and many of the building and quirky Mid Century Modern. It has a wonderful beach (and a fabulous café that must not be missed), superb fishing and is well-known for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Lauderdale by the Sea is more than just a vacation resort – it is a genuine community. So many activities, fairs, exhibitions and events are organised locally for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. The small stores add to the friendly, community spirit.

For those who are looking for nightlife, Fort Lauderdale is just a short drive away and Lauderdale by the Sea is a great base camp for road trips to Miami, the Florida Keys and all points north, of course. But many,particularly families, will find everything they need for a fabulous beach vacation right there in the resort.
