As a part of the Travel Bloggers Exchange Conference I attended this year, there were tours that allowed us to become familiar with the area. Angella from The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau (#HelloSunny) picked us up. We were starving so our first stop that wasn’t scheduled was to Tom Jenkins restaurant. A soul food staple of Fort Lauderdale. Great soul food with bbq sauce that makes you want to break out in song. Thanks Bam Bam for getting us in and out as quick as possible. The food

There may not be a utopia, but for one lifelong Florida resident, Fort Lauderdale is the next best thing. As one of the largest cities in the state and a popular tourist destination, Fort Lauderdale sits seaside in the southeastern portion of the state. With an average year-round temperature of 77 degrees, the city draws people to visit all year and though, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau's official website, tourists can plan their visit with ease. is a hub for Fort Lauderdale

One of my fondest childhood memories is on an old fishing boat floating around in the South China Sea. I remember the anticipation of watching my dad and his fishing buddies slicing up black inky squid with their glinting diving knives. Then watching hook, bait, line and sinker disappear deep into the water. Followed by the grand wait. It was thrilling to watch grown men springing into action like young school boys the moment they felt a firm tug at the end of their line. Every limb on the boat suddenly had

It’s a common lament from foreign travelers—especially Europeans—that it’s difficult to get around in most U.S. cities without your own car. In our automobile-centric young country, there often aren’t many easy options for getting from A to B on public transportation.

There are plenty of exceptions though, including some cities that don’t immediately come to mind. For tourists heading to sunny and warm Florida, Fort Lauderdale is a vacation spot where you can get around easily without your

I want to state for the record that I hate the word “shimmy.”

Unfortunately for my wordsmithing-self, it always starts as a “shimmy.” A little swing to my hips, and a bip-bop in my shoulders. During a really good meal, I can’t deny that clapping has been known to occur.

It took me years to realize that I have a Happy Food Dance. If you can believe it, I didn’t know I was dancing when I found food I loved. Maybe I’m not as in touch with my own love for food as I think I am.

I also don’t consider myself a foodie, so I

Bonnet House is one block from A1A and the Atlantic Ocean beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The house and grounds were owned by Frederic Clay Bartlett and his wife Helen-a wedding gift from her father.

You would never know that these gorgeous grounds and house lie in the mangroves near the beach.

Our amazing tour guide for this photography tour through the Bonnet House grounds was Andy Royston– the Fort Lauderdale native famous for his daily morning photos of the beach taken on his iPhone.

Get ready residents of Fort Lauderdale and South Florida: Party, Event and Wedding Season is almost upon us! Yes, the last six months may have been on the hot side, but we all know that the next six months is going to be absolutely perfect. Residents of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County look forward to this time of year all summer. Of course, so does the rest of the planet!

While people in the north are battling cold winters they seek relief by visiting South Florida. Fort Lauderdale is known as the "Venice of America" due to the numerous

What are the transportation logistics for tourists and business travelers, visiting Fort Lauderdale? In Broward County, not every hotel, resort or motel provides courtesy shuttle bus service from the airport. However, from renting a bicycle, waving down a trolley to embarking on a boat, Fort Lauderdale journeys plenty of convenient transportation options.

For those visitors, planning to travel beyond the Fort Lauderdale beach and convention center in Broward County, a dozen car rental companies reside in the parking lot at the Fort

May 15: "Best" Broward

In all things, "best" is a subjective matter. The best vehicle for dragging trash to the Southwest Regional Landfill isn't the best vehicle for dropping your daughter off at the prom. In this post, we explore five of what may be Broward County's top restaurants, all suited to very different occasions and experiences. When you've been to those that best suit your purposes and culinary needs, we're sure you'll be calling for the services of a moving company in Fort Lauderdale!

April 18: Kid's Eye View of Gulfstream Park

Gulfstream Park

I love visiting Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach. My grandpa sometimes takes my brother and me for an afternoon of horse races. It is a ton of fun to bet on the horses (but you need an adult in order to bet money).

The anticipation of seeing if your horse actually wins is very intense. When the horses start racing, you could hear the loud BOOM, BOOM, BOOM of their mighty legs as they gallop around the dirt track. The jockeys wear brightly colored shirts so it's easy to tell which horse you are rooting for. If you do win a race, I assure
