Fort Lauderdale, FL

Fort Lauderdale lies along the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the New River, 25 miles north of Miami. Its warm tropical weather attracts many people throughout the year. For sun-worshippers, the city has six miles of beaches. There are also many recreational waterways with extensive boating facilities, access to every conceivable watersport, a variety of fascinating museums and trendy restaurants, and an array of entertainment venues.

Key West, FL

Ernest Hemingway made wild, colorful Key West his home, and you will want to do the same. Home to modern-day adventurers, artists and poets, the island’s charming Old Town teems with restaurants, bars and unique shops. Add pristine coral reefs, coconut palms and a laid-back attitude that’s truly contagious, and it’s easy to see why so many visitors to Key West never leave.

Nassau, Bahamas

With dazzling beaches, turquoise waters, colorful past and vibrant Junkanoo culture, Nassau is a great place to sun and sightsee. The city is on New Providence Island; just offshore is Paradise Island, home to luxury hotels and resorts. Visit the luxurious Bahamian resort, Atlantis, on Paradise Island. Interact with amazing dolphins at Blue Lagoon Island, one of the largest dolphin habitats in the world. Go on a glass-bottom-boat tour for a glimpse into the underwater world of the Bahamas. While in Nassau, experience the wonders of a majestic coral reef or the intrigue of a sunken wreck on a dive excursion.
