Summer is "super" easy, "super" fun and "super" affordable. Greater Fort Lauderdale is offering a $25 gift card to offset rising gas prices, when visitors book a minimum two-night hotel stay, May 1-September 30, online at sunny.org or through facebook.com/visitlauderdale.
To further enhance the stay, a free "Beach Starter Kit," including a beach towel, beach ball and flip flops, as well as Super Summer Savings with 2-for-1 specials at attractions throughout the destination is also included. When combined with summer hotel value rates and air service from 50 U.S. destinations, the forecast for summer is sweet.
"Double your pleasure for half the price at more than 25 top attractions with our Super Summer Savings program. Visitors will find hotels at great prices, including family-friendly Superior Small Lodgings, making it possible for everyone to have an adventurous and activity filled vacation," says Nicki E. Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The 2-for-1 offers provide visitors with options to play, explore, relax and revel in experiences from the ocean to the Everglades. Nature enthusiasts can kayak, tackle stand up paddleboard, get lost in a butterfly or flamingo garden, experience an airboat through the Everglades or dive into crystal clear waters and explore the destination's 75 underwater wrecks. Spa time comes with a deep-tissue massage. Sightseeing includes getting up close and personal with sharks at the new and exciting SHARK exhibit at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale. Night time ends with a fun and funky live Polynesian dinner show.
