5 Best Fort Lauderdale Hotels

5 Best Fort Lauderdale Hotels 


As a Fort Lauderdale resident, you get a lot of visitors. You live where people vacation and they want to come and see you! The question I get all the time is “Where should I stay?” While there are many great options here, the answer depends completely on what kind of trip you want to have. Today I’m sharing 5 of the best Fort Lauderdale hotels for the ultimate South Florida vacation.

1. Riverside Hotel

www.riversidehotel.com
Where old Florida charm meets new modern comfort. The only hotel on Las Olas Blvd, this location can’t be beat. Stroll the Riverwalk and watch the yachts float down the New River. Admire the coral fireplaces over a cocktail at Preston’s Lounge and then take a walk on Las Olas where you’ll find art studios, boutique shops, restaurants and cafés on every block. Be sure to order the fish dip alongside your cold beverage and just try to resist the enticing late-night smell of Kilwin’s ice cream.

2. The DalMar

www.thedalmar.com
An urban, luxury resort with a focus on wellness and self-care. This is a perfect place to treat yourself. Enjoy the spectacular views of the city skyline while you sip a rooftop cocktail at Sparrow or grab a bite in your bikini at The Terrace Grill. You’ll feel refreshed after a soak in their saline swimming pool and if you really want to namastay here, catch a flow at their onsite Yoga Joint with one of South Florida’s very best yoga teachers. 

3. Pelican Grand Beach Resort

www.pelicanbeach.com
If it is comfort and relaxation that you want, this is your perfect getaway! One of the only hotels east of A1A, directly on the sand. Start your day with breakfast overlooking the Atlantic ocean then float down the lazy river or take a dip in the sea. Get comfy under an umbrella on a complimentary beach chair or visit the calming rooftop spa with a live ocean soundtrack. Don’t forget to grab a scoop at the old-fashioned ice cream emporium. Life’s a beach

4. W Fort Lauderdale

www.marriott.com
Pool parties here are iconic. If your dream vacation looks anything like spring break then the WET deck, sitting 5 floors up and overlooking the ocean is just the place for you! Hit a bootcamp class or rent a beach cruiser bike before the day-drinking begins. Refuel at El Vez for Mexican fare and margaritas or if you’re feeling fancy, go for a true culinary experience at Steak954. But don’t stare too long at the jellyfish tank. It’s mesmerizing!

5. The Ritz-Carlton

www.ritzcarlton.com
It’s easy to feel as if you’re actually on a ship while enjoying the breeze from your ocean-facing balcony. You’ll be lulled to sleep at night by the sounds of the surf and awaken to a sunrise over the ocean. Rent a bike to explore the nearby neighborhoods, cruise down A1A, lounge poolside in a private cabana or head to the beach to get some sand between your toes. The Spa uses local elements like cleansing sea salts, marine mud and tropical nodes of citrus to replenish and nourish. No doubt, this nautical oasis will leave you feeling one with the sea.

5 Best Takeout Options in Denver Colorado

5 Best Takeout Options in Denver Colorado


The 4th of July is going to be a little different this year. Celebrating Independence Day while socially distancing and staying home means for many of us, takeout! Besides, what’s more American than cheeseburgers, pizza, and fried chicken sandwiches? To eat a meal cooked by someone else in a kitchen other than your own is a momentous occasion these days and choosing a restaurant is a decision I do not take lightly. Today I’m sharing 5 of the best takeout options in Denver, Colorado. I hope you find a new favorite!

1. Park Burger

www.parkburger.com
This burger will make you proud to be an American. Whether you go classic or specialty, the flavor is unmatched! I couldn’t resist “The Fun Guy” topped with sautéed mushrooms, Swiss cheese, haystack onions & truffle-garlic aioli. Double down with some crispy parm truffle french fries on the side, a fizzy yerba mate to wash it all down and complete the experience with a homemade marshmallow bar for dessert. This burger will leave you totally satisfied and you’ll be coming back again soon.

2. Blackjack Pizza

www.blackjackpizza.com
This Detroit-style, square pan pizza brings back all the nostalgia of Pizza Hut in the 1990’s. Blackjack has it all and for those who just can’t choose a specialty pie, you can pick two with no upcharge! My pizza was half “Good Deal” with pepperoni, mushrooms, red onion, green pepper and Italian sausage and the other half was “Hawaiian” with ham, pineapple and extra mozzarella cheese. A small feeds two people perfectly with six slices and four delectable, crunchy, cheesy corner pieces. It’ll be your new Friday tradition.

3. Birdcall

www.eatbirdcall.com
The “Southern Chicken” with pimento cheese spread and southern coleslaw is crunchy, tangy, and when dipped in a side of their Birdcall sauce, makes the perfect bite. The location in Whole Foods at Union Station is completely contactless. You pay up front with a credit card and take your own order on a touch-screen. In about 10 minutes, you’ll see your name on the TV screen telling you which bay your order is in and ready for pick-up. Bubbly fans, don’t miss their organic soda fountain. If you get one of their spicier sandwiches, don’t forget the Oreo milkshake to cool down.

4. Leevers Locavore

www.leeverslocavore.com
Whether you want an easy sushi lunch, a surf and turf dinner or you’re making a decadent cheese board, this is the place to get all of your supplies. Everything in the store is local, natural and fresh. They have a vast selection of Colorado-made products and you are sure to discover something new. I always grab some cold cuts and a bag of frozen rainbow corn. Their produce section boasts variety so you can stock up on your plants but I also suggest you grab a strawberry whoopi pie. It’s called balance.

5. Safeway

www.safeway.com
A sensory experience from the moment you first smell it. Please allow me to reintroduce you to our good old friend, the rotisserie chicken. Safeway’s version of this comfort food is only $7 and whether you choose rosemary, BBQ or traditional, it is perfectly delicious every time. Hot sliced chicken with crispy, seasoned skin is just the beginning. Leftovers make the best sandwiches, chicken salad, lettuce wraps and you can even make bone broth when you’re all done. Rotisserie chicken really is the gift that keeps on giving. Be a hero tonight and bring one home!
