Destination: Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Flight time from Charlotte, NC: 2 hour charter flight
Closest private airport: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL)
Did you know? Spend a Day at the Races at Gulfstream Park, a horseracing complex that hosts Championship Meets from December-March, every Wednesday through Sunday. Private suites, luxury boxes and VIP Fan Tours can make your race experience extra special. Come early or stay after the race for al fresco dining, the casino and upscale shopping.
In-flight entertainment: The city’s diverse landscape includes western towns, a lighthouse, waterfront mansions and a mountain, so it continues to be a popular location for movies and TV shows. Mark your calendar for the annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLiFF) and the Women’s International Film & Arts Festival to support up-and-coming filmmakers.
Things to Do: As we countdown the days until the beachside Tortuga Music Festival or RockFest 80’s return, you can also listen to the sweet sounds of nature. Fort Lauderdale is considered “the yachting capital of the world.” Take a private nighttime tour through the Everglades too. There is something about being in the wetlands with alligators, panthers and pythons that gets your adrenaline pumping.
Take a photo here: Fort Lauderdale’s beaches were on display in the 2017 reboot of the popular TV series Baywatch. The movie starred Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron. Try to do your own slow-motion run down Deerfield Beach near the International Fishing Pier. Red swimsuits and swimming trunks optional.
Where to Stay: The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale, Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach, W Fort Lauderdale
Davinci Tip: “Something about longer days of sunshine makes our guests want to travel to sandy beaches and palm trees. If you are wary of Spring Break crowds, a weekend in Fort Lauderdale is the place to go!” - Kyle Mikoch, Senior Flight Coordinator
