More Bang for Your Buck: Summer Vacationing in South Florida
Spending your summer vacation in town may sound boring -- but some South Florida sites can be fun and exciting -- without costing you a fortune. Tonight -- how to get more bang for your buck at the area's best attractions.
(WSVN) -- With all the sun and fun in South Florida, why go anywhere else?
If you like food, festivals, and artistic flair, then this is the place to be.
More and more people are driving to their destinations and they are trying to stay a little closer to home.
So let's start with everybody's favorite topic - food.
If you can wait till August, some of the hottest restaurants in town will be celebrating another Miami Spice Month.
You'll get a lunch for 19.99 or a dinner for 29.99 at some of the finest restauants in Greater Miami.
And if you'd like to add a little culture, why not head over to Little Havana on a Friday night.
You have entertainment, you have cultural activities, you have art exhibits, there's food and entertainment - it's a nice evening.
And if art really is your thing, then this is the place to be.
Also coming up in August, the Fort Lauderdale Art Museum will be hosting a gallery solely dedicated to the Vatican.
It's one hundred years of Vatican historic pieces and its coming to three museums in the U.S. ... and Fort Lauderdale has been fortunate enough to be selected.
Fort Lauderdale is also the place to be if you want to cruise the waterways.
For the third straight year, a host of hotels are offering a coupon to explore the coast.
The only catch - you have to stay a minimum two nights.
You can go on a jungle queen cruise, you can ride on a water taxi.
Or you can go scuba diving and swim with the fishes
This is the perfect opportunity to explore your own backyard. People are urged to take advantage of what we've got.
Another free activity -- try the Gables on the first Friday of the month.
All the galleries on Miracle Mile are open for food, wine, and entertainment.
