I’d like to say that Fort Lauderdale is Miami’s more mature older sister, and at many times this might be true, but if you’ve ever been to Ft. Lauderdale during spring break then you know the last word you would use to describe it is “mature.” So maybe Ft. Lauderdale could be described as Miami’s less spicy, more sophisticated sister who can still party hard when she wants to, but whose heaviest party days might be a bit behind her. And that’s important to note about Fort Lauderdale, because many people might tend to shy away from this town for a quiet beach getaway based on it’s party reputation, but the truth is this town hasn’t been the party capital of the region since the ‘80s or ‘90s.
Come check out Fort Lauderdale again and you may be surprised by the splendor and beauty of hotels like the Lago Mar Beach Resort and Club. This understated but spectacular resort is the opposite of what many people think of when they picture the sometimes rather garish image of Ft. Lauderdale from the past. Lago Mar has a prime and very secluded location in the city and is home to a 500-foot private beach of its very own, which is very impressive in this crowded beach town. Lago Mar has been around since the 1950s when it began as a small beach hotel. Since then it’s grown to become a world-class resort that has won awards as one of the world’s best places to stay such as the AAA Four Diamond Award. The resort’s accommodations range from standard rooms to incredible poolside suites and the resort itself is like a city of its own with a spa, shopping, restaurants and bars that will keep you entertained and pampered throughout your stay.
