pompano beach vs. deerfield beach vs. lauderdale-by-the-sea

Any opinions as to which of these is more of a quieter, better beach area to stay than the others?

We visit Pompano Beach in late December or early January and find it to be quieter than the other two locations you mentioned. IMO Pompano has a much larger beach area and has a very quiet nightlife around the beachfront.

Each location has very nice beaches, however. LBS seems to have a much smaller & compact beachfront area and a livelier bar scene at the beachfront.

Deerfield Beach has a substantial beachfront area, but still smaller public beach than Pompano Beach.

Hope this helps.

Thanks CT, that does help. We've liked the Gulf side for our last several visits but we'd like to check out the Atlantic again and I was curious about these areas. Definitely not looking for a spring break type scene. Any suggestions about good agencies or services to use to rent weekly in Pompano? Thanks again.

The Lauderdale area is a timeshare capital. There are rental options all over the place, including ebay. Many are reviewed on TA as well. You can get a condo or kitchenette this way, instead of a hotel room.

We've always booked on our own, just shopped well. Prime times book up fast as they do on the east coast.
