some basics to get you started

Taxes: 6% sales tax on purchases and 5% tax on hotel rooms in Broward County. (The lowest tax burden in the US according to the Global Business Travel Association.)

Weather: With more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year, flip flops and shorts are a common sight in the hotels and beaches. 

Power Converters/Adapters: If you're visiting from outside North America, you may need power converters or an electrical adapter for any electronics or appliances you want to bring.
