Fort Lauderdale Named Among TripAdvisor's Top 12 Places To Travel For Big Savings During The Holidays
Snowbirds headed to South Florida for the holidays should consider skipping Miami and staying in Fort Lauderdale this month.
That's because TripAdvisor has named Fort Lauderdale one of the 12 best places to travel this December for those looking for big savings.
To come up with its list, the travel review website compared the average weekly rates for a stay at a two-bedroom vacation rental within popular destinations in the U.S. and Canada for December 2016. TripAdvisor then named vacation alternatives for travelers on a budget.
Fort Lauderdale beat out Miami, with weeklong travelers saving an average of $322 a week, according to the report.
"Stay 30 miles north to save big on accommodations (not to mention attractions!) in Fort Lauderdale. Reviewers have noted that the prices are more economical, the city is less crowded and the nightlife has its own distinct appeal; the beaches are even designed to accommodate bars and restaurants," TripAdvisor's article reads.
Other Florida destinations holiday travelers should opt for, according to TripAdvisor, include Key Largo instead of Key West, Kissimmee instead of Orlando, and Bonita Springs instead of Naples.
