Recently, the Fort Lauderdale daily newspaper,
the Sun Sentinel, publised a list to the
"ten places to take out-of-town
guests". It is a very useful guide to some
of the best Southeast Florida attractions. To

have decided to add our own comments and
suggestions about places to visit:
section: please add Aventura Mall to this list! It is very
convenient for most visitors as it is located
close to the beaches and is one of the largest
and nicest malls in SE Florida.
4) Windy? Rainy?:
what about a good book by one of the local
authors? It seems that there is no one better
than Carl Hiaasen, the Miami Herald
columnist and author of humorous crime novels
which are set in the area. You'll love him! Also
read his Herald columns (under opinions).
Or what about listening to the outrageous Neil Rogers on WQAM (560 AM)? Offensive, but funny.
6) South Beach: it is crammed full in the
evenings, and it is almost impossible to find
parking. A better bet is to go in the morning -
much less hassle and you can still have a nice
breakfast at the News Cafe, one of the most popular and
inexpensive restaurants there.
10) Do not forget downtown Hollywood, Hollywood Blvd. and
Harrison Street. Huge changes in the last few
years and good fun in the evenings with good
restaurants, shopping and music.
possible, try to take in a Miami Dolphins game, even if you are not
crazy about this sport. The atmosphere is good
and spectators are well behaved. Incidentally,
fans arrive well before the start of the game to
hold mini-parties in the parking lots, bringing
their own portable barbecues and cold drinks.
