  1. Thanks! Child is age 4. So the pools and water slides are all free? How much are the pedicabs (or how much should I tip) and where do they take you? I am not against spending a little $, just not $80+ per person for an excursion.
  2. What 100% safe options are there to do with a young child to do in Amber Cove DR? (not a booked excursion or something that costs a lot) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3. What are my other (safe) options that would be suitable to bring a young child to and not cost much?
  3. What 100% safe options are there for a woman and young child to do in St Thomas? (not a booked excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3. What are my other (safe) options that would occupy a young child for the day and not cost much? I've been once before, and we took the ferry to St John for the day. It was amazing, but we didn't have a child in tow. Wold like to do something different this time- something easy with less moving parts (less hassle and less things that could go wrong).
  4. What 100% safe options suitable for a 4 year old child to do in Grand Turk, preferably inexpensive? (not a cruise line excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3. What are my other (safe) options that would occupy a young child for the day and not cost much?
  5. What 100% safe options are there for a woman and young child to do in St Maarten? (not a booked excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3.

  6. What 100% safe options are there for a woman and young child to do at Princess Cays? (not a booked excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, what are my other (safe) options that would occupy a young child for the day and not cost much?
  7. Thanks! So are the beaches like Ft lauderdale beach/Ft lauderdale beach park and las olas beach (or crystal beach) over crowded? I'm just going off of google maps (never been there) so apologies if the names are not specific enough. Also, are the areas that the sun trolley drops people off good beaches, or is it worth driving farther for a better beach?
  8. So anywhere the sun trolley drops off at a beach will likely be crowded? Is there ample free public parking at Dania and at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park/John Lloyd? Are there always people at the state park on weekends? (I just don't want to be by ourselves in some secluded area). I assume FL state park beaches are much different than our NE state park beaches, which are often secluded and empty. BNBR, why would you prefer/recommend Dania over John Lloyd?
  9. Thank you! You and others provided such invaluable advice!
  10. What is the best beach between Port Everglades and Hollywood , FL? Or is it worth going farther north for Ft Lauderdale/ Las Olas beaches? My idea of a great beach is NOT crowded. I don't need bars/drinks, or chairs/umbrellas. Prefer being able to enjoy picturesque, photo-worthy beaches and the natural beauty of the area. But of course it needs to be safe, and clean.
  11. I'd be willing to broaden my search radius to include Hollywood beach, Dania Beach, etc (preferably the southern end of Ft lauderdale as opposed to northern end). Still hoping for a new (2019-2020) hotel within walking distance of the beach, max $250-300. Surely there's been new hotels built along that stretch of coastline within the past year? I know Le Meridian is in Dania Beach area, but not within walking distance (what type of public transportation is available there?). The Delmar and Fairfield downtown have beach access via the sun trolley so that's an option if I can't find one within walking distance (although downside is they are twice as far from cruise terminal). I'm not interested in nightlife, bars, or shopping. I will need to eat meals (so nearby restaurants are a plus). Prefer to enjoy the natural beauty of the area (uncrowded beach, gardens, etc) as opposed to clubs and bars.
  12. Thanks everyone! Checking out the other suggestions now.
  13. Travel is a little over a month away (Feb/Mar). So June openings won't work 😞
  14. Thanks everyone for the replies so far! Hard Rock looked promising until I saw the dates I need are $500/night! I need something with a $250/night max. The Ascend hotel was built in 2018 so that's on my list of possibilities unless I find something newer. Conrad was 2008 so that's not an option (it's 12 years old). Any other ideas please send them my way! I could also go +/- a half hour or so from FLL.
