Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida for Thanksgiving Break? Yes!
November 25, 2016
My school changed our calendar, so we get an entire week off for Thanksgiving break now. It’s really cool and it allows us to travel to more fun places. We chose to come back to south Florida because we know it’s always nice and the ocean temperatures stay warm enough to swim all year.
We had no agenda for this trip so we just did whatever we wanted. We did get to go to the annual Light up the Beach at the Fort Lauderdale Beach. That was a lot of fun. There was music, pony rides, bounce houses, slides and more. It was all free and was great fun.
Below is a video of me waiting for The Free Ride.
Most of this trip was spent hanging at the pool. We did go to an AMC dine-in theater to see Trolls. That was fun and the food was good. (My grandma said it cost us $50 for the movie and food, so she doesn’t plan to go back there again for a while.) We did a little shopping, I got a new roll-y suitcase. I also got to see my pal, Rich, who drives the Free Ride up and down the beach in Fort Lauderdale. I love that thing!
This trip was over before I knew it. Six days just wasn’t long enough. I know I’m coming back again after Christmas, but I don’t want to go back to the cold weather.
