When most people think of South Florida, they think of places like Miami, South Beach, and West Palm Beach. When I went to South Florida last year for my 23rd birthday, I might have discovered the most beautiful part of South Florida. The beautiful city of Ft. Lauderdale is located right in between West Palm Beach and the city of Miami. Surprisingly, such great location still doesn’t bring much traffic to the city of Ft. Lauderdale. Most people who come to visit Florida, unfortunately, overlook this hidden paradise.
When I first went to the city of Ft. Lauderdale, I was trying to get away from all of the traffic on the highway. I got off on an exit that was in the city of Ft. Lauderdale; The first thig I saw was the great nightlife environment that they had down there. I wasn’t alone on the trip. I brought my best friend with me. JJ my best friend, is also my dog. I don’t always travel with him but it was winter time, and I didn’t want to leave him home alone for two weeks.
Riding through the city of Ft. Lauderdale that night was so beautiful that I decided to cancel the reservations that I had at the hotel in Miami, and I booked at one of the hotels in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. I knew I had made the right decision right after I booked the room. I saved over $125 by switching my hotel to Ft. Lauderdale from Miami. The only negative part of the new hotel was the fact that they were not pet-friendly. Which means I had to find a doggie daycare for JJ.
I asked the hotel manager for advice since I wasn’t from the area. She told me that she has a cousin that works at a pet grooming school in Ft. Lauderdale called Merryfield School Of Pet Grooming. She told me that her cousin is friends with most of the pet daycare centers in the city and that she would be able to find me the best place for JJ for the week. He found me the most luxury pet spa that I had ever seen in my life. It was like a vacation for dogs. This place had everything from swimming pools for the dog to even a doggie jacuzzi. I wasn’t sure if I had gotten the best deal here or if JJ had the best deal.
