Three Beaches In Florida

As I may have mentioned, we have spent the last 3 of our winter breaks in Florida. (Here’s a whole post about why winter break in Florida is a good idea!) We spend a lot of time by the pool in my parents’ neighborhood, but we also went to the beach a few times. My top beach recommendations in South Florida are: Hollywood, Miami Beach, and Deerfield Beach.

Hollywood Beach

We always like to go to Hollywood Beach and rent a surrey! It’s a winter break tradition. This time we also just walked on the boardwalk a bit.

I might have a thing about bikes on the beach.

We returned a different night for the surrey rental!

Miami Beach

Although we have gone to South Florida 3 years in a row, it’s been many years since I’ve been to Miami. Our good friends moved there this past summer though, so we headed down to visit them! Then we spent the day in the area. This was the only beach where we actually went on the sand and into the ocean.

Deerfield Beach

The last beach we visited was Deerfield Beach. I like this one because it has a grassy area to sit and the ocean isn’t too far down from the sidewalk!

Dave and I also walked at Deerfield Beach at night, and I was a big fan of the holiday decorations!
