Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Florida

You can get anywhere you want to go on two feet (or two wheels) in this cheery beach town just south of Fort Lauderdale. As part of the community’s charter, no new buildings in town can exceed 33 feet tall, so you won’t have to worry about high rises blocking your view of the turquoise waters. Instead, retro renovated hotels dot the shoreline and a bustling downtown emanates from the oceanfront drive. Sit down for drinks, dinner, and live music with your toes in the sand at Aruba Beach Café or take the gals for dinner and dancing at Mickey’s Downtown piano bar. Don’t feel like making the trek home when the night’s over? Call the town’s free shuttle to pick you up and deliver you to your door.
