The Best of South Florida: Best Places To Meet Your Signifigant Other
If you're looking for love in all the wrong places, look no further. Our Best of South Florida is dedicated to all the single men and women. Tonight, we found The Best Places To Meet Your Signifigant Other... sealed with a kiss.
Just ask the expert... when it comes to matters of the heart, you have to be at the right place, at the right time.
Dr. Ruth says, "Wherever there is the possibility in the park, at the zoo."
And there's no place that makes people feel warm inside like our viewers Third Choice - Starbucks on Lincoln and Merridian.
"It's very personal."
"You have so many people that come here, and they're just here to relax."
Relaxing and receptive.
At this place, conversation and coffee go hand in hand.
"It's a great place to meet people...wonderful."
"One table becomes two and two tables become four and six."
And soon, you have a room where everybody is meeting everybody until they meet that somebody special.
"I've seen people come together over a cafe mocha, a drip coffee, over anything we have - an orange juice."
And if you don't fall in love... you'll at least love the coffee.
And you'll love to know our viewers' Second Pick is an entire road - Las Olas in Ft. Lauderdale.
"Usually, theres nice weather. Tons of people to meet. Beauitful places."
And wonderful places to eat.
If you're more the romantic type, Las Olas is awesome at amore'.
"It's absolutely wonderful. If I hand an engagement ring right now, I'd plop it down on the table."
But whether it's an engagement or an engaging evening, Las Olas can quickly turn lonely singles into hand-holding couples.
"It's a different era, a different feel, its more romantic."
And what can be more romantic then bright lights and little boutiques.
Heck, even an after dinner drink can be special.
"This is for lovers, this is a special place to go."
But the most special place to meet that somebody special ...
"Welcome to South Beach where love is always in the air."
That's right, our viewers' Number One Choice is where else but South Beach.
"People fall in love because of the trees, the street, the art, the culture, we have nice cafes."
From those nice cafes to the incredible clubs, South Beach has something for everyone.
"You can always find women in the clubs who are willing to do whatever youd like... really."
Well, we don't know about that.
But we do know South Beach has a way of making relationships sizzle.
"It's just in the air, the water, the sand."
"It's just the amniance of the outdoor places to go to eat."
And you're not going to meet someone unless you put yourself out there... so why not grab a latte or a gelato and stroll Collins Avenue to see who sees you and who you see... "Hi I'm Laurie."
"Theres just so much to see as well. Theres different shops, theres art galleries."
And there's always so many people on South Beach so you can always make that special love connection.
"The fact that everybody's from everywhere and for the most part they get along."
"Because I'm here. Guys like me make women fall in love."
Next week, get ready for what could be our most colorful topic.
We found South Florida's Best Tattoo Parlors.
Also, you can now vote for South Florida's Best Thai Restaurant.
