South Florida Places to Go and Things to Do
Clean Beaches, Sunny Days, and great temperatures make South Florida a vacationer's playground. During the summer temperatures don't usually go above the 80's and there is usually a breeze. When it does rain, it's usually for a short time and then blows over. The ocean breezes keep most of the rain off of the beach, so if it seems rainy out west, try the beach anyway...it might be sunny! If not, there are always great shopping trips to Sawgrass Mills.
The beach is always clean!! Staff cleans it every morning. Sand is soft. Its beautiful!!! Lots of great restaurants and shops directly across the street that are easy to get to. It's fun to stroll along.
