Girls Getaway...need advice on activities and restaurants

Hello!

We are celebrating a friends 40th birthday in Hollywood! We took advantage of the Groupon and are staying at The Desoto.

Any locals or repeaters know where we can get a nice dinner, and maybe some sightseeing?

We are laid back and don't want to do the bar scene or night clubs! We do have a rental car.

Our friend has never been to Florida. We are right next to the beach- so that is taking care of!

Are the 'Gator Rides' and Everglades rides cheesy?

Any advice is appreciated!!

Thanks!!!

I would skip the Evergaldes boat rides. However, since you have a car, I'd drive ove to the Anhinga Trail at Everglades National Park. It's about a 1-1/2 hour drive from Hollywood but it's worth the trip. Stop off at "Roberts is Here" for shakes on your way back.

You might also want to try Gulfstream Racetrack. They have upscale shopping and a casino that's near Hollywood.
