  • Fort Lauderdale

    What to do:

    Explore Fort Lauderdale with the Water Taxi. This hop-on, hop-off tour is the best way to enjoy the city’s waterways and check out awe-inspiring mansions and yachts. Plus, its route makes it easy for your girl group to grab a bite or check out the shops on Las Olas Boulevard.

     

    Where to drink:

    Swing by Stache. This mysterious speakeasy features luxe décor and bartenders with an impressive attention to detail. Order up a craft cocktail, grab a couch and relax. If you’re lucky, you may catch a cabaret show or a live band.

     

    Where to dance:

    Check out Blue Martini Lounge. Located at The Galleria on Sunrise Boulevard, Blue Martini Lounge is known for its martinis—naturally—and bumping dance floor. If your girls’ trip is ready to party, this is a Fort Lauderdale must.

     

    Where to brunch:

    Make a reservation at S3. After water taxis, speakeasies and martinis, it’s time for a well-deserved brunch. S3 is known for waterfront views, a bright, beachy feel and unique takes on breakfast classics. Try the seared tuna benedict or the pastelito French toast.

  • Miami

    What to do:

    Go on a shopping spree in Wynwood. This Miami neighborhood isn’t just full of gorgeous murals—it’s also lined with quirky boutiques and shops that have something for everyone. Be sure to stop by MIMO Market, which highlights local artists, and Boho Hunter, which features Latin American designers.

     

    Where to drink:

    The Broken Shaker is an award-winning bar for a reason. Located in the Freehand Hotel, The Broken Shaker is famous for its freshly-mixed daily punches and inviting patio complete with string lights. Order up a punch bowl for your gals and claim a table at the best bar in America.

     

    Where to dance:

    Put on your dancing shoes and head to Basement Miami. This Miami Beach nightclub has a disco ball, live music, a bowling alley and an ice rink. Come for Basement Miami’s retro feel and stay for the ice skating.

     

    Where to brunch:

    Cecconi’s at Soho House is one of the hottest brunch spots in Miami. Reserve a table on the patio for your group—you won’t regret it. It balances gorgeous design, a naturally beautiful garden setting and a healthy (and delicious!) menu.

  • West Palm Beach

    What to do:

    Book an appointment at Eau Spa. At Eau Palm Beach’s luxurious spa, you don’t just choose what kind of treatment you get. You can also customize your treatment room by choosing scents, lighting and music. Then, lounge by the pool, in the sauna or on a swing. You deserve it.

     

    Where to drink:

    HMF at The Breakers is known for swanky drinks—and swanky clientele. Dress up in your cocktail chic and explore the menu. Try one of their champagne cocktails and drink in the grand Florentine Room.

     

    Where to dance:

    Once you’ve had a drink or two at HMF, it’s time to see a different side of West Palm Beach. Respectable Street hosts iconic live music sets. Plus, the colorful murals and checkerboard dance floor provide so many great photo ops for your girls.

     

    Where to brunch:

    If you’re a fan of avocado toast, Avocado Grill West Palm Beach is a must-visit. You can order the traditional toast or truly indulge. Try the crab toast with local bread, guacamole, eggs, crab salad and hollandaise sauce. Don’t worry—there are avocado-less options, too. The peaches & cream waffles are perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.
