1950s Inns Restored with Eco-Friendly Upgrades

The Oceanview and Ocean Spray Inns were built in the 1950s, south Florida’s glitzy heyday. Yet the side-by-side properties, which together form The Desoto, retain an old Florida charm. "It's a very peaceful, tranquil place to spend your day," says owner Laurie Schecter, describing the lush gardens that shade her lovingly restored inns. From here, you’re only 100 feet from the beach, so you can easily walk back to sprawl out in the spacious one-bedroom and deluxe studio apartments. One of The Desoto’s distinguishing characteristics is its steadfast green mission. The grounds have been landscaped with native, environmentally sustainable plants and the hotel has been retrofitted with energy-efficient materials. Hotel staff compost onsite and encourage alternative transportation with complimentary bike rentals and a tricked-out wheelbarrow.

Hollywood, Florida: Quiet Coastal Town with Beachfront Boardwalk

Hollywood is situated just a few miles south of Fort Lauderdale and about a half hour drive north of Miami, but it's quite a bit more relaxed than both. The town’s beach boardwalk—named one of the country’s best by Travel + Leisure—stretches alongside the Atlantic Ocean for 2.5 miles, attracting joggers, bicyclists, and shoppers. To get to the boardwalk from downtown, hop aboard the old-timey trolley that makes runs to the beach Wednesday–Sunday. Other Hollywood attractions include the Anne Kolb Nature Center, a 1,500-acre wetland where you can kayak through tidal channels or take walking trails through red-mangrove forests.

The tempo picks up in neighboring Fort Lauderdale, a city famous for its beaches and boats. During the day, water taxis cruise the Intracoastal Waterway, offering up-close views of waterfront mansions and anchored yachts. At night, hit up the upscale bars and restaurants on Las Olas Boulevard.
