  • CRYSTAL: On the road to... CANDY: Fort Lauderdale Beach!

  • CRYSTAL: Woohoo!!

  • I have driven past Fort Lauderdale several times. Never bothered and stopped by

  • so we were like, You know what? Let's go to Fort Lauderdale Beach and see what it's all about!

  • It's about it's about a 4 hour drive from Tampa so Crystal and I were gonna split the drive, two hours each

  • so it shouldn't be too bad. And Florida is super easy to drive.

  • Compared to California, it's a straight shot, a lot of rest stops and...

  • but the only thing is there's no mountains so the landscape isn't as interesting as California

  • but I love it.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • What's up!? Come on in to our amazing suite!

  • We got an entire suite with a huge, huge balcony.

  • Ta-daaaa! Look at this view of Fort Lauderdale! It's so pretty.

  • And it doesn't stop there. It keeps going. It wraps all the way around.

  • Fort Lauderdale... I like the other side better but it's nice that we get the option of this side too

  • if we wanted to check out cars, haha... or traffic... if you want to see how traffic's doing.

  • But now, this is the nice side. I really like to be over here

  • so I can see Crystal and I having breakfast here tomorrow morning, just chillin...

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • Morning! We're gonna have brunch at YOLO. It's on Las Olas Blvd, like really close to our hotel,

  • at Riverside Hotel and brunch is like my favorite meal cuz I love pancakes.

  • I don't know if they'll have pancakes but something sweet they always have at brunch

  • so I'm really excited for that and we're gonna go check it out now!

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • Oooohhh hot fire... for hot Florida.

  • Gotta warm up! Haha.

  • OMG that is like real fire, it's hot. That is HOT.

  • I got the house omelette and it's a special today which is the Greek omelet

  • so it's got all the nice Greek stuff like feta cheese, tomato

  • and I think he said basil? When he was talking about it it just sounded really good

  • so I was like, You know what? I'm just gonna have that. So that's mine!

  • I got the brioche french toast with cornflake crust... or it's crusted with cornflakes.

  • And I got some fresh berries and also got like two buckets of syrup that he gave us.

  • He must think that we love syrup because that's a lot of syrup.

  • And I usually don't like blackberries. I must have had really crappy blackberries before because

  • this blackberry is really good.

  • Look, I'm eating the whole one.

  • Mmm... wow. Yeah I think the blackberries I had before were like too sour or something.

  • This is just right. I can eat this all the time.

  • And they're healthy!

  • So just got done eating at YOLO and we loved the food and we loved our waiter, Joey.

  • He was awesome. Thanks Joey for being so awesome.

  • BUT everybody else in that restaurant was rude, unenthusiastic, had no emotion or were hungover.

  • And especially the manager. I don't know what her name was but she was in this blue shirt

  • and she was just so unfriendly and unwelcoming.

  • Thumbs down to her; thumbs up for Joey!

  • Welcome to our hotel room at Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach. It's amazing!

  • And here is our bedroom. We have two nice queen-size beds.

  • It's a nice-sized room and I love the wood floors here too.

  • Look at this!

  • This is um... if you wanna wake up and be like, Hey! I'm gonna go to the beach this morning

  • let me first take a look at it from up here and then go down there and enjoy it later.

  • More beach views!

  • So this is our last day in Fort Lauderdale and we're so sad to leave!

  • We are! We had a really, really good time.

  • Yeah, I had a blast. I mean, I didn't know what to expect of Fort Lauderdale because I haven't really...

  • I mean, we've both been here years ago but we didn't really explore it

  • so this time we really dove in and explored a little bit more of everything

  • like Las Olas Boulevard

  • we went to the museum which that I think was our favorite part.

  • The Stranahan House Museum.

  • I think that's how you pronounce his last name.

  • Sorry if we're getting it wrong.

  • Yeah, I mean the history of that... it was really, really interesting

  • so if you're into learning a little bit more about Fort Lauderdale and it's history

  • you should really, really go there.

  • Yeah, that's a cool spot and it was located right next to our hotel that we were staying at

  • and we didn't even know it was there because it actually is a historic house

  • so it's right in the middle of all these high-rise buildings

  • and yeah, it's amazing that they kept this one plot of land there and preserved it so that was pretty cool.

  • And then we got to the beach and we got this nice oceanfront view.

  • Conrad is amazing. This hotel is superb.

  • Yeah I mean... so prior to that, we stayed at Riverside Hotel and that was like right on Las Olas Blvd

  • and that was like really nice too because it was a historic, classic hotel.

  • and it's a great spot like next to everything.

  • It's right on Las Olas Boulevard so you don't have to take a taxi or a water taxi anywhere because

  • everything's on that street.

  • All the restaurants, clubs, bars, coffee shops... everything's right there.

  • Yeah, so then after that, we came to another scene which is like the Fort Lauderdale Beach area

  • A1A Beachfront Avenue!

  • And we're staying at the Conrad and it is beautiful here.

  • It's beautiful, it's calm, it's not noisy...

  • which we've been to Miami and it's a totally different vibe.

  • It's a lot more calm here. So if you like more of a calm, chill, ocean lifestyle, this is the place to be.

  • Mhmm... we really, really enjoyed it. We enjoy the more calm, relaxed vibe

  • so I think we like Fort Lauderdale way more than Miami.

  • Maybe we're getting old. We like this more chill vibe.

  • We are getting older too. Hahaha!

  • But yeah, the view is gorgeous. This morning we went out to take some pictures

  • but it starting raining a little bit because there's like a storm coming but at least we got to enjoy it a little bit

  • and we still have this nice oceanfront view which I'm in love with.

  • And if we get lucky and all of a sudden this storm disappears we're gonna go check out the pool

  • Yeah, but we'll see. Hahaha

  • Thank you, Conrad. We loved our stay here and thank you to our... what was our other hotel's name?

  • Riverside Hotel. That hotel was amazing too.

  • They're both good for different reasons.

  • Yes. So, til next time! We love Fort Lauderdale! Bye Fort Lauderdale!
