Winter in Connecticut can be overwhelmingly cold, which is why we migrated to the warm, sunny beaches of Fort Lauderdale during our last Christmas break (back when I didn’t have a blog!) As lifelong New Englanders, it was hard to imagine Christmas without snow. We didn’t see a single Christmas tree or ornament in Florida either. Instead, there were palm trees and I was going coco-nuts for them!

We stayed at a hotel directly across from the beach and our room had a panoramic view from above. Everyday, we were greeted by the soft sand, warm waters and gentle waves. At one point, we counted a flock of 80 seagulls sleeping peacefully next to us!

There was a decent amount of things to do in Fort Lauderdale. When we weren’t at the beach, we took a boat tour to look at mansions and mega yachts. Then we walked down Las Olas Boulevard to window-shop and look at local art.

Overall, our trip was laid-back and relaxing!

    Fort Lauderdale looks beautiful! I live in Pennsylvania and we are looking at several more weeks of cold weather and a snowstorm, so I am definitely in the mood to escape to the beach!!

      It sure does! We’ve had quite the amount of snow storms in Connecticut, too.. Can’t wait for the summer!
