With cheap flights to Ft. Lauderdale available at this pristine time in seasonal Florida, why not jump at the chance to enjoy a vacation? Maybe you've just graduated and you want one last bit of summer before you start working, or perhaps you’re planning for an upcoming winter getaway to Ft. Lauderdale. There is something about 20-somethings flocking to Ft. Lauderdale for nice beaches during the day, and lots of fun at night.
 
Eat: Coconuts
Face it- fortunately, your appetite has gone beyond late night Domino’s Pizza hunts and $5-foot longs from Subway. Treat yourself to a picturesque experience at Coconuts. Located on the water, this dining experience is quintessentially Ft. Lauderdale. Being a 20-something means trying new things and exploring, so why not sample new dishes? Their seafood menu specializes in dishes like Coconut Shrimp, Fish Tacos and a local Mahi-Mahi sandwich.

Drink: Buddha Brewery
If you order one more cranberry vodka or Malibu Bay Breeze you’re sure that bartenders will question your ID. 20-somethings that can drink should explore the spirits and brews that go beyond simple drinks. Embark on a visit to the Funky Buddha Brewery. Find a place where zen meets good, locally crafted beer. The spot is perfect for groups who want to kick back and enjoy tastings of cool sounding beers like the Floridian Hefeweizen and the Lucky Bugger English Pale Ale.

Do: Swim with Dolphins
If you think swimming with dolphins are for families with young children, think again. Having an up-close and personal experience with one of the friendliest sea creatures can actually be a lot of fun, and can even make for a romantic date. Dolphin World lets you immerse yourself into the clear blue waters with trained dolphins who will go beyond giving you cheek kisses, but can take you for a fun ride in the water.
 
Dance: 5 Points Lounge
Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to make it a late night at 5 Points Tiki Lounge. This retro place serves up 55 beer selections along with fine wines and spirits. You can't describe a night at this place without actually experiencing it, because it is unlike other nightlife venues in Ft. Lauderdale. When the local DJ isn't spinning tracks, there is often live bands performing. It is a place with a great atmosphere that works for the open minded 20-something.

Enjoy: Hollywood Beach
What is a trip to Ft. Lauderdale without a few days on the beach? Hollywood beach, the most famous of the many on the Ft. Lauderdale strip is perfect for 20-somethings. It was not only named one of America's Best Beaches, but it has a little bit of everything. You can enjoy the promenade on wheels or skates, you can be adventurous and rent jet skis, or you can relax in a cabana and people watch. This versatile beach may be for everyone, but there is one thing we can all agree on- it’s one beautiful beach.
