Everywhere you go, homes, furnishings, clothes are all in color.
As soon as we found out that the Everglades were close, we were so there!!!
We ventured to South Beach (of course!). Really great area- many square blocks of art-deco buildings that have been restored.
Not being a great artist, I did not capture much of South Beach- but it is cool- lots of restaurants and shops and a beautiful beach walking area!
Speaking of walking areas, we took a water taxi ride (http://www.watertaxi.com/watertaxi/fort-lauderdale/) and ended up in Hollywood Florida:-). What a totally fun place! It is like 1960's beach walk: funky, kitchy, clean, lots of cool shops and affordable restaurants. And the water! Totally turqoise! The water taxi ride also toured the canals (Ft.Lauderdale is considered the Venice of America).
We only had 3 1/2 days here, and loved every minute. If you get the chance, check it out! Big caveat- according to Dave (and everyone we know that has been here), it is VERY hot and humid during the summer!
