Visit Florida With Me!

Where should I go for Spring Break? 

This spring break, my friends and I are deciding to take a beach trip to Florida. After deciding on visiting Florida, we realized we were not sure where in Florida to visit, because there are so many great places! I have not been to Florida since I was maybe four years old, visiting Disney with my family, so I decided to weigh my options and figure out which place is best to visit! I know spring break is not for a couple more weeks, but I’m really excited about this trip and I can’t wait to share my options with you guys!


The city of Miami is located in South Florida and is famous for its strong Cuban influence. In general, we all know that Miami may not be the best place to visit during Spring Break. However I still think it’s a beautiful city to visit and explore. 

Despite it just being a beautiful city, it’s also famous for its warm weather and its beautiful beaches, so there’s a lot of water activities, famous landmarks, and attractions to visit, like the iconic Miami Tower!


West Palm

West Palm Beach is a strong candidate in our decision-making, because the flights are way cheaper than other places in Florida. West Palm Beach is a city in South Florida, and it is famous for its typical palm lined beach trees that go up and down the strip of where bars, restaurants, clubs and attractions are.

 There’s actually a very famous Museum along the strip that displays American, European, and Chinese arts called the Norton Museum of Arts. West Palm has a lot of nightlife activities, cultural attractions, shopping areas and fantastic fishing spots.

Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is a city on Florida’s Southeastern coast and it’s known for its beaches, boating canals, and culture. The strip of Fort Lauderdale is lined with restaurants, bars, boutiques and luxury hotels. Fort Lauderdale was another strong candidate because a lot of families live here in terms of culture and vibe. It’s a lot calmer and cheaper.

Although all three places are within Florida and look very similar regarding the pictures they all have different styles of culture related to each part of Florida specifically. I’m really excited to visit Florida and explore all of the beautiful parts I never got to, especially the beaches! I know I did not put Orlando on this list but that’s because we didn’t even consider it because we decided to just visit Florida and not actually go to Disney. However,  I hope that all of you guys have the best spring break and regardless if you’re going on a trip or not I hope that it’s very relaxing and re-energizing for you!
