Downtown areas in south Florida are so drastically different than in the north east and even mid-west. I think not being wrecked with salt and snow every winter maybe keeps things a little nicer. That, or I've got my rose-colored glasses on. These photos are from downtown Boca Raton (again) and also a place in downtown Fort Lauderdale right before we went to the airport on Sunday. It's so easy to get around this area - just thinking that the drive between these two places is less than my commute from Lancaster to Harrisburg really messes with me. In the best of ways. All the amazing food in such close proximity has got to make me the most happy person. See below photo. That's how happy I was with a cocktail I hated (it's pretty, yes, but it was an awful mix of flavors).
I had to eat at the most amazingly named place - YOLO. Again, like everything here, amazing atmosphere, but not like everything else, OK food. Amazing dessert though - which we devoured so quickly I didn't photograph.
