Calling South Florida Home

Calling Delray Beach, Florida her home since 1997, Beth has traveled the state extensively enjoying sunny skies, pristine beaches and cobalt blue waters. Delray Beach, located just to the north of Boca Raton, is a quaint seaside town removed from the hustle and bustle of less intimate cities. Freelance writing has allowed Beth to travel to many of the Florida destinations the she writes about. Key West, located at the bottom of the Florida Keys, is by far her favorite Florida destination and she makes every effort to get down there at least six times a year. The colorful characters on Duval Street, nightly shows at Sunset Pier and Hemmingway's beautiful six-toed cats all merge together to create one of the most unique tropical towns in the country. Beth has also written extensively on infamous South Beach. Less than an hour drive from Delray, SoBe, as the locals lovingly refer to it, is considered one of the hippest and hottest cities in the world. People watching from one of the numerous cafes along Ocean Drive is a wonderful way to pass a lazy afternoon. Museums are abundant for art lovers. Beth frequently visits the Art Deco Museum, which pays homage to Miami Beach's decades-long love affair with the Art Deco movement. Beth often makes day trips to Fort Lauderdale enjoying the savory restaurants and quaint shops on Las Olas. Central Florida, particularly Orlando with all of the amusement parks, is another favorite stopping point. The West Coast of Florida boasts crystal clear waters. Tampa Bay, just a three-hour drive from Delray, offers all sorts of fun-filled vacation activities. During football season Beth heads over to the left coast to cheer for the Buccaneers.
