Ok parents, this may seem a little unconventional (and more like something you'd find in Cosmopolitan™ magazine) but I've got a little quiz for you on the subject of romance. (You do remember what romance is, right?)
- The last time we enjoyed a quiet dinner together was ___?
- The last time we slept in was ___?
- The last time my spouse and I leisurely strolled and held hands was ___?
- The last time we enjoyed a pool deck free of squirting guns and kiddie pools was __ ?
One of the many hotels of choice is the Marriott Hollywood Beach. They have fantastic Florida Resident rates. AAA members can save big as well with rates from $119.
Can I tell you how gorgeous the beaches are? And the water was so clear and warm! Just walk right out of the hotel, cross the pedestrian-only Broadwalk and you're on the sand. The hotel has chaise loungers and cabana rentals, or just opt to bring your hotel pool towel and lie on the sand. I can't remember the last time I got to do that without lugging shovels, buckets, beach balls...it was nice!
Bike rentals are also available right on the Broadwalk for either 30- or 60-minutes, and they even have those bikes with the surrey fringe canopy tops. Love that. It's a great way to see the entire 2.5 mile Broadwalk with all its shops, bars and restaurants. (We found great fish tacos at Nick's, you should find them too.) Segways? Yep, you can rent those as well (but the bikes have beverage holders which allows you to hold hands as you pedal along...)
