  • Fall Break vacation!

    "We had a really good time staying at the Shores of Panama! The kids had never been to the beach before and I am thrilled we were able to make such great memories at your establishment. The condo was equipped with everything we needed and being on the ground floor was awesome because we didn't have to worry about the little ones and the balcony. The unit was clean and the pictures accurately displayed what the condo looked like. The unit could use a fresh coat of paint but it is still lovely, just normal wear. I would recommend adding a DVD player for the living room (we just moved the one from the bedroom to the living room for family movie night). The owner was really great with getting back to me about questions we had checking in ( even though he too was on vacation). I would certainly recommend staying at the Shores of Panama to friends and family! Thank you so much and we look forward to next years vacation!"

  • Fun@ cinnamon

    "We had a wonderful time with our minny family reunion and baby baptism. The oceanfront condo was great and located next to walkway, which was great for my 87 year old mother-in-law. She coukd walk to the beach. The condo could use some new pots and pans, they were old teflon scratched up. Also it would have been nice to have a dustpan to sweep up the sand.<br/>"

  • Tropical Paradise

    "We chose this area for our winter vacation because we wanted a rural experience away from the crowds. During the winter, southern Florida is rife with snowbirds and the coastal areas have row after row of high-rise condos. But the central region is the old/forgotten Florida and it truly is a nature lover's paradise. If you're looking for a wilderness adventure, this is a good place to be. A labyrinth of paths snake through the ten acre property/jungle with a surprise around each corner - towering bamboo trees, huge bird-of-paradise plants with leaves/fronds as big as a man, ancient live oaks draped in Spanish moss, palmettos, vines, tall pines, magnolias, and many strange flowers that defied our identification. Wild citrus trees were laden with ripe grapefruit and oranges. A gurgling creek bisects the property and from a wooden bridge we watched a river otter disappear into his den. There is also a natural pond with a large alligator in residence. The home is tastefully decorated with charming high-end folk art - treasures in every room. At twilight we watched wood storks settle into the pond for the night. Sand hill cranes flew low overhead toward their roosting area. The nights were alive with frog and cricket chorus, and many other-worldly sounds. Excitingly eerie! There are no security lights here (good!) so when it gets dark it REALLY gets dark. The stars were incredible at night - Orion straight overhead. We explored the area marshes, beaches, and forests with our car, our bikes, and our canoe. When we paddled the area creeks and rivers we felt like we were in the Amazon - wild and exotic. A nice thing about the local creeks and rivers is that the slow currents allow you to paddle in either direction, eliminating the need to spot a car. The waterways are so remote that you're unlikely to see cabins or other signs of civilization. Just what we wanted! We had a very pleasant stay and the owners were charming and very attentive. If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable home in the woods, come to this place."

Florida South East Travel Tips

Southeast Florida is known as one of the best beach spots in the U.S., and it truly has something for everyone. If you’re looking for a party spot or a nice place for family travel, you can find it all here. Check out these great vacation locales:

Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is likely the most family-friendly locale in Southeast Florida, with plenty of cozy bed and breakfast options near the beach. And of course, there are abundant beaches to choose from! Check out the main beach and the popular Fort Lauderdale Beach Promenade, which recently underwent a $26 million dollar renovation. Aside from lounging on the beach and playing in the sand, take the kids for a stroll on the promenade, watch serious beach volleyball players compete and have lunch at Oasis Cafe or Shula’s on the Beach.

If you want a quieter beach to take the family to, head to the John U. Lloyd Beach State Park at Dania’s Beach. It’s less crowded, has gorgeous views and is an excellent swimming spot. There are also 250 acres of barrier island to explore via guided nature trails.

At some point, head into the city and shop on popular Las Olas Boulevard. The kids will love Kilwin’s Chocolates and Ice Cream for delightful sweets and Basics for souvenirs. Other fun family-friendly activities include taking a ride on the Fort Lauderdale Sun Trolley, checking out the Museum of Discovery and Science and embarking on a cool boat tour with BlueFoot Pirate Adventures, where the kids learn pirate slang, enjoy pirate face painting and set sail!

Miami and Miami Beach

Miami and it’s counterpart just across Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach, have things for both families and partiers.

For kids

Take kids to the Miami Children’s Museum, a delightful place with hands-on activities that teach about different professions. They can run a pretend vet clinic or learn what firefighters do, among other things. There’s also a nice playground here. Planet Air is an awesome spot for older kids to let out their excess energy. It has a huge trampoline park, more than 30 ropes courses, rock climbing facilities and bungee trampolines so kids can get some air in a 6,000-square-foot space. There’s also the Miami Seaquarium, the Lion Country Safari and Jungle Island where you can get up close and personal with exotic wildlife. For an off-the-beaten path feature, check out Wynwood Walls, an area in midtown Miami known for its beautiful art. Kids can run freely around whimsical life-size murals. For a cool treat, head to The Frieze Ice Cream Factory in Miami Beach. Do your souvenir shopping at Bayside Marketplace, an excellent little collection of souvenir stands, clothing stores and sweet shops.

For adults

Miami is renowned the world over for its excellent nightlife and party scene. If you’re heading to Miami or Miami Beach with a group of friends, don’t miss out on these awesome clubs, bars, restaurants and other places for adults:

- Grab dinner at glamorous hotspot The Forge, a rococo-style steakhouse with a Parisian facade and serious celebrity chops.

- Head to Little Havana for a taste of authentic Cuban food, shops and cigars.

- Hang out on South Beach. The iconic Miami hangouts are Joe’s Stone Crab, Opium Garden and Nikki Beach Club.

- Visit the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens on Biscayne Bay. It’s a European-style estate with beautiful artwork and antiques that really stand out among the beachy and relaxed feel of Miami.

- Look for celebrities at fabulous renowned restaurants, including Casa Tua, Prime 112 and Soho Beach House.

- Hit the clubs! Miami is known for its lavish nightlife, and some of the best are Myntlounge, Mokai Miami, LIV and Rokbar Miami.

Palm Beach and West Palm Beach

These side-by-side locales are best known as cities where older adults retire to enjoy the warm weather and relaxed lifestyle. Whether you’re visiting family or just looking for a quiet, pretty place to vacation, there’s plenty to do and see in the Palm Beach area.

Check out the stunning Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, a 73-room mansion completed in 1902 that is an excellent representation of the Gilded Age with its grand staircases, original artwork, and gold-brushed ceilings. Take a tour and see most of the original furnishings and learn more about the life of this railroad magnate. The photo opportunities here are spectacular. Lay out on the beaches of Peanut Island and John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, stroll in the Mounts Botanical Garden, shop on Worth Avenue and take the kids to the perfect little Palm Beach Zoo.
