South Florida Magazine Publishes Staycation Guide

We are all about catering to tourists and helping them enjoy the South Florida experience to the max, but we also know that plenty of reasons exist to enjoy a good staycation, especially in South Florida. The popular Ocean Drive magazine recently provided a guide to the “ultimate Miami staycation”. Let’s explore some of the highlights that made the guide.

We’ll kick things off in the Brickell and downtown area of Miami. Seaspice is one of the places mentioned. Overlooking the Miami River, this place is open Tuesday through Friday for happy hour from 5 pm to 7 pm. Bring along a friend or loved one and toast to life or anything you may find toast-worthy while enjoying the beautiful vistas.

Also making the list is a longtime local favorite: Vizcaya Museum and Garden. This historic landmark features the beautiful mansion itself and over forty lush acres of impeccably maintained gardens that are absolutely picturesque and will likely have you snapping multiple selfies.

Let’s move on to Miami Beach. If you’re looking for some live performance art, the Faena Theater emulates the feel of an opera house in Europe and often features shows centered around cabaret performances.

After you’ve visited the Faena Theater, grab some Korean grub at Drunken Dragon or key lime pie at the South Beach staple Joe’s Stone Crab. The latter has desserts and its stone cab is a must-have if you have a seafood palate.

Whether it’s a staycation or vacation, we can help you find the right South Florida vacation rentals. Should you need something more specialized, we also offer Miami Beach vacation rentals.

Florida Spring Break Continues to Be Popular

As more people receive the vaccine, travel has begun to see adoption again, including Spring Break vacations. With its gorgeous beaches and countless recreational opportunities, it’s no surprise that Florida remains a popular Spring Break and year-round vacation destination.

Air travel is now increasing in popularity. The Transportation Safety Administration announced earlier this month that it screened over one million passengers at airports, the largest number of people screened in a single day since early March last year. However, analysts in the airline industry claim that this only reflects about sixty percent of the pre-pandemic volume.

Although figures suggest people are becoming more familiar with flying, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to warn against unnecessary flight, including for those who have been vaccinated.

Road trips are also an excellent option for spring break and some other travel this year. Some people may expect to use their stimulus checks to go on holidays, which will be good news for Florida’s tourism industry. Road trips also provide a way of traveling without the risk of being near others for an extended period.

Remember that we have a host of South Florida vacation rentals available for those wishing to experience South Florida during the spring or the upcoming summer season. We can help guide you on some of the hottest (no pun intended) places to relax and unwind like Miami Beach, Coconut Grove, Fort Lauderdale, Downtown Miami vacation rentalsand more. We also offer a medical tourism package for those wishing to visit South Florida for health or cosmetic procedures.

Check Out These Florida Beaches

If the recent temperatures have been any indication, beach season has largely marked its arrival. With spring break looming on the horizon and warm weather predicted for the next few months, we figured now would be a nice time to share some notable beaches in “The Sunshine State” of Florida worth visiting as you explore South Florida vacation rentals. Plus, relaxing with a beach towel provides a great way to social distance and soak in some vitamin D.

We’ll begin with Delray Beach. It is one of the few cities in the United States with a downtown found directly on the water, giving visitors the best of all worlds: gorgeous beaches and the cerulean Atlantic Avenue, which has an almost infinite number of places to shop, dine, and drink. Every year, more than three million people head to the beach, yet Delray doesn’t succumb to the common overcrowdedness found at other beaches. Delray Municipal Beach is mere miles to the east of I-95 and it remains a highly accessible experience.

Just two hours or so north of Miami is Sebastian Inlet State Park, comprising more than three miles and spanning thousands of acres. It’s gained a reputation for being a surfing and fishing hotspot, attracting people from all around the world looking for big waves and a big catch. Whether you prefer to sunbathe, snorkel, swim, or even go beachcombing, there is something for everyone here. Best of all, there is even camping available so that you’re never too far from the ocean.

Sanibel Beach is northwest of Miami and is known for being one of the top places in the country for shelling. Its location means you’ll feel like you’re in an isolated area soaking in the sunshine.

Should you have any questions about finding property such as Florida Keys vacation rentals, we’re here to help.

South Florida Doctors: Let’s Partner Up

We previously announced our SoFLA Vacations health-minded travel package aimed at those looking to visit sunny South Florida for medical tourism. We’d like to take this blog opportunity to reach out to doctors and local South Florida practices that may be looking to provide their services to such tourists and generate business. This may present a fantastic opportunity to significantly boost referrals and exposure.

As a reminder, the travel package provides all-inclusive rooms or condominium units, transfers to and from all medical appointments and procedures, a wheelchair and/or walker, grocery and/or frozen meal service, and bedding sheet and liner packs. Health visits by healthcare providers and local practices also comprise part of the travel package, which may be a great way for those in the healthcare or plastic surgery industries to improve referrals and raise business during the pandemic.

Medical tourism provides a great way to get whatever work you may need done while enjoying the experience of new surroundings. South Florida is already recognized for being one of the top tourism destinations in the southeastern United States.

The travel package is a convenient choice for those who would rather focus on their procedure and recovery rather than on the specifics. Doctors or practices interested in partnering with SoFLA Vacations to offer their services or skills are encouraged to contact the company.

Remember that even if you don’t need medical procedures, we offer plenty of South Florida vacation rentals in cities like Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and more. Should you be in search of a summer vacation property, we encourage you to contact us to find out what is currently available. Alternatively, you can check out the properties on our website and book a stay directly at places like the BeachWalk Resort and the historic La Finca, to name a few.

Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale Are Ready for Spring Break

With the upcoming arrival of spring break, many people will likely be descending upon South Florida to enjoy the warm weather, the beaches, and a potentially much-needed vacation. With the various circumstances going on, however, cities like Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale are both implementing rules and safety guidelines so that all “spring breakers” can enjoy the experience as safely as possible.

In Fort Lauderdale, for example, the ultra-popular A1A that runs parallel to the beach is undergoing some changes. For starters, ridesharing will be prohibited and anyone caught violating this risks receiving a citation. Instead, there will be a designated pickup and drop-off area set to be located at Las Olas Oceanside Park, itself located at 3000 East Las Olas Boulevard. Barricades will also be used to encourage social distancing.

Over in Miami Beach, the beach will be accessible from 7 am to 7 pm and there will be no coolers, inflatables, alcohol, tents, or tables permitted on the beach. All sidewalk cafes must close by midnight. Furthermore, after 10 p.m., all box liquor sales will end across the entire city.

If you’d like to spend spring break or the upcoming summer in South Florida, we’re ready to help you enjoy a perfect vacation. Contact us today.

A Vacation May Do Wonders

A holiday vacation is highly beneficial in helping the body and mind take a load off and relax. Might it be the solution to marriage difficulties as well? An article in the South Florida Reporter from last year seems to indicate that this may be the case. Nearly three in five Americans said that taking a holiday rescued their relationship.

A survey of over1,900 participants paid close attention to travel patterns and it was found that more than half of respondents had more intimate encounters with their partner during the holiday compared to when they were living their everyday lives, after analyzing the results. In comparison, there were a larger number of compliments and upscale meal dates given and received.

Marriage proposals tend to be popular during holidays, and more than forty percent of respondents said they wished their spouse would propose during the holiday. A South Florida holiday rental could be a great experience for you and your partner with spring and summer quickly approaching. We can connect you to some invitingly relaxing places throughout South Florida.

Simple Tips for a First Vacation Rental Experience

If you’re willing to travel, we want you to enjoy the South Florida experience the way a local would, resting and basking in the sunlight. You will first need to select the right one before you can move into your holiday rental, and that means just keeping in mind a couple of pointers.

To begin with, similar to searching for a hotel, make sure you search early, a couple of months in advance if possible. As the case tends to be in places like South Florida that are constantly in demand, the best vacation rentals can be booked quickly and they fill up fast

When you have narrowed down the hunt for holiday rentals, make sure to read the contract meticulously. This is imperative as it will probably detail what costs you have to pay for as well as any liability that could cause harm or whether you may have to shell out money for cleaning. Be confident that while you stay in the vacation rental, you are well aware of whether you’ll be responsible for paying utilities or other extras such as cable television.

Don’t hesitate to take a couple of rental pictures the day you visit and make sure to walk around and take a good look. Having photos means that something that may not have been caused by you isn’t charged to you.

Florida Keys Experience Becomes One Woman’s Home

A Business Insider article shares the story of a woman who was living in Maine. She was working as a therapist part-time and also writing on the side, with plans to publish another book after already having one on the market. Eventually, the woman decided to quit her therapist job and concentrate fully on making writing a career. That decision also included a move to the Florida Keys where the couple decided to try living on a sailboat for six months.

The six months have now become five years and the woman calls the move to Florida “the best decision ever”. Among the reasons why she is so happy with the move, she cites the weather in the Florida Keys which allows her to spend more time outdoors, something that is further enhanced by the fact that she lives on the water. The woman praises the fact that she can enjoy the weather “all year long”.

While you may like where you live, the Florida Keys are a great option when you’re considering a vacation. Conact us to learn more about what vacation rentals may be available.
