Are you looking for the perfect vacation for the entire family?
South Florida has some hidden gems you may have missed or not heard about. Well, we found the sweet spot after spending some time at the Driftwood Beach Club Fort Lauderdale.
One of my new favorite Lauderdale-by-the-Sea hotels. This quaint retro motel from the past has everything you would need for a family vacation.
There are One Bedroom, Two Bedroom, and Studio accommodations. Our one bedroom was plenty of space for us. A full kitchen featuring a stove, fridge, dishwasher, and coffee maker. Everything you would need to cook a meal is provided along with dishes and utensils. Two gas grills are located outside for grilling tasty family dinners.
When was the last time you jumped off a diving board?
I think it was in my neighbor’s pool when I was about 9 or 10 years old. Well, The Driftwood Beach Club has one and it was probably the most popular part of our vacation.
It’s the largest heated swimming pool in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea with plenty of room for floats, rafts and grabbing rings from the bottom. I think I enjoyed lounging on the pool deck the most having a quiet moment while the others hosted a cannonball contest.
Across the street, you’ll find private access to the beach. Lounge chairs and beach umbrellas are available for your convenience. No lugging a bunch of stuff around.
The tiki hut lounge is perfect for sipping rum cocktails and as the sun goes down while you challenge your family to a game of shuffleboard.
Walk to Anglin’s Square and check out the local restaurants, boutiques, and ice cream shops. The fishing pier is a fun treat at $2 for adults and $1 for kids.
If you are flying in and renting a car, there is a Publix Shopping Center, CVS Pharmacy and Dunkin Donuts down the street.
This was one of our best family staycations on a budget. If you are visiting family in South Florida or looking for a cheap family vacation, the Driftwood Beach Club is your destination for making memories and having fun.
