I have been reding a lot and trying to find a place that is close to the beach and a few places to eat and drink. I am comming down with a friend for 4 nights in early March. We are not gay and would not be comfortable in a gay resort. We are flying in to Ft. Lauderdale and renting a car. I would prefer to stay on Ft. Lauderdale beach but if there is another area on the water where I should look please tell me. I definately want to be within a short walk of the beach and a few bars. I dont drink and drive. I will also be golfing a couple days which is why we will have the car.
