Re: If you had 3 nights in mid Sept. for a getaway..would you fly to Boston or Ft. Lauderdale?

Boston for sure.  I love it, plus you can take a day trip to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard which are wonderful - and you can get your beach time in if you want.  No hot sweltering Florida for me.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

On the other hand, since everyone said Boston, Ft. Lauderdale is lovely and is right on the water.  I did clip this from the blurb about it:  Once the site of raucous spring break parties, the Strip is now lined in upscale outdoor restaurants, bars, boutiques and luxury hotels.  The weather will be warm and humid but there are lots of beautiful plants and colors and its a lovely place.  If you love sand, sun, beaches and the above kind of entertainment, you may love FL as well.

In September, I'd choose Boston. In cooler months, I'd choose Florida, but maybe not Ft. Lauderdale. I'd go to the Keys. Smiley Happy

It would have to be Boston..and then I'd rent a car and spend the entire stay at NantucketHeart or Martha'sHeart Vineyard.

I would pick Boston, but I would also take into consideration the travel time.  I would never spend a whole day traveling for a 3-day vacation.

OMG, Ft. Lauderdale!!!  Most of the tourist would be gone and you would have the beach to yourself, plus I love, love, love the beach!

 

Been to the Boston area once, and that was enough for me!

Yeah. Those of us on the West Coast would have that issue, but we were only given the two choices that take us thousands of miles from home. I'd probably head for Santa Barbara on the West Coast.

Boston would be nice in the fall, but you could probably get a good deal on a resort in Ft Lauderdale at that tine, too.  Weather is a consideration, but that could be an issue in either place.  It depends on what you're in the mood for...three days in a historic cosmopolitan city, or three days on the beach.  Smiley Happy
