Summer is here. Time for you to check out everything Broward County has to offer without the crowds. Don’t get me wrong, I love the tourists and you should too. They bring $9.4 billion to our local economy each year. In fact, we have many amazing facilities in Broward specifically because 11 million of them show up each winter. Now that it’s off-season, it’s time for us to enjoy!
Your favorite restaurant will have a shorter line. The malls will be less crowded. Catch a movie in an air-conditioned theater. Take a ride to the beach and enjoy plenty of space to sprawl out with plenty of parking spaces.
Cool off at one of our four Broward County water parks.
Consider a visit to the African American Research Library and Cultural Center currently celebrating its 10th anniversary. “The Fabulous Forties on the Avenue,” has interactive displays, photographs and artifacts from 1940 to 1949 including a pristine condition 1941 Lincoln Continental convertible. Best of all, the exhibit is absolutely free.
Take a ride to one of our wonderful nature centers such as Anne Kolb. You won’t believe you’re still in a busy urban county like Broward.
Don’t forget to put together your hurricane kit, too. Although we have not seen a severe storm since 2005, we all need to be prepared. You can also request a hurricane guide in large print, and you can subscribe to the latest hurricane email updates, follow us on twitter.com/ReadyBroward or like us on facebook.com/BrowardEMD.
Above all, I hope you have a safe and happy summer. If I can be of any assistance, feel free to call my office at 954-357-7003 or you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
