We'll be flying to Florida three weeks today, spending 4 days in Lauderdale and then returning to Key West for 10 days, staying at Alexander's as usual.
I like the Lauderdale-Key West combo.
I like that Lauderdale is not as isolated as Key West and, of course, need to do some serious shopping.
And there is a great restaurant in Lauderdale, Sublime, which we love. The owner is usually on site all evening, mad as a box of frogs, sipping away at her drink. She is great.
But Lauderdale is far more normal than Key West, easier to live in, but I'm not sure if I wouldn't get bored living there all the time.
