There’s no better place to visit this summer than South Florida.

In addition to the well-known beaches, there are tons of activities in the area each summer.

The music scene alone is legendary this year! South Florida will be home to many concerts, including Ariana Grande, Dave Matthews, Jennifer Lopez, Hugh Jackman, Florence and the Machine, Vampire Weekend, New Kids on the Block, the Jonas Brothers, Shawn Mendes, Mary J. Blige and Nas, Lil Wane and Blink-182, Khalid, Kiss, Iron Maiden, Queen and Adam Lambert, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Hootie and the Blowfish, the Rolling Stones, and more. These shows will all take place between May 31 and Sept. 6.

In addition to concerts, South Florida will also be graced appearances from various comedians this summer. The area is also home to museums, golf, boating, parks, culture, water parks, great shopping and restaurants – for adults and kids alike.

For these reasons, and many more, South Florida should be at the top of your list when planning your summer vacation, or even just a quick weekend getaway.

But don’t let the fear of “sticker shock” get in the way of your Fort Lauderdale vacation. Many hotels, even beach front resorts, offer fantastic rates, enticing people to visit the Sunshine State. Some packages even include meals and tickets to various activities. Whether you come down to enjoy our beautiful beaches or world class entertainment, Fort Lauderdale really has the best of both worlds.

So this summer, pack your bags and be sure to include beautiful South Florida in your travel plans!
