Sun, sand and surf are things that tend to make people think of summertime and vacation getaways. Theme parks, boat rides, music and evening entertainment are also fond reminders of how great that time of year can be. In South Florida the weather is warm and sunny all year round, making it a perfect place to be whenever one feels the urge to escape for awhile.
