Parkland, Florida located in Broward county is 3 miles NE of Coral Springs, Florida (center to center) and 37 miles north of Miami, Florida. The city is part of the Fort Lauderdale metro area. Parkland was established in the year 1963 and has grown rapidly in a very short time. In fact, the population was less than 4,000 in the 1990s and has risen to about 14,000 within a decade or so. The zoning laws of Parkland were framed in such a way that they would protect the ‘park-like’ spirit of the area.

The city has several social organizations and groups that arrange a wide range of cultural and recreational activities. The beaches of South Florida are a short drive away. The city is surrounded by several miles of equestrian trails, which provide great opportunities for horse riding. The city also has many golf courses.

An exclusive waterfront community, Lighthouse Point is a welcome escape from many coastal towns in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Fort Lauderdale is famous for its beaches, arts, culture and events. From shopping on Las Olas Boulevard, to gondola rides on the canals, to a historic riverfront. Just two miles north of Port Everglades, you can experience Fort Lauderdale’s landscaped beachfront promenade, with its signature white wave wall and brick paved path. Across the street, visit luxury hotels, and enjoy Fort Lauderdale shopping or dining or a narrated 90-minute amphibious tour of quaint Las Olas Boulevard, historical districts, and the mansions and yachts dotting Millionaires Row. Stop at the Stranahan House, a preserved 1900s home furnished with antiques of the era. Or “follow the red brick road” of the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk, the landscaped park, to the Arts and Entertainment District.
The Town of Manalapan resides along the Intracoastal Waterway, and is comprised of two separate areas linked only by water. So if it has to do with water, this is the place to be. If you like to dive, the dive wreck of Lofthus is situated approximately 175 yards off the shore of Manalapan in the Florida Underwater Archeological Preserve. Before wrecking naturally off Manalapan in 1898, Lofthus traveled the world as a merchant ship with gun ports painted on her sides to discourage pirate attacks. Today, the wreck is located and reached in only 15-20 feet of water.
Staying waterside is easy in this small community. The Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is a breathtaking oceanfront property with three outstanding restaurants and a spa providing a tranquil and serene environment for all pampering services. Recognized as Florida’s top resort in the 2015 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, this a luxurious playground of top amenities and indulgent service.
Water is nearly everywhere you turn in Lantana. It all starts over at the beach. The town’s 8-acre beach has just under 800 feet of shoreline. When you walk in this sand, you’re walking in history, as the legendary Barefoot Mailman made this sand famous. In early pioneer days of The Palm Beaches, Lantana was an important stop along the famous mail carrier’s celebrated oceanside route. Of course, today you won’t find a modern postal jeep trekking through the sand, but the beach is terrific for spending time with family or building an impressive sandcastle.
Go west from the beach onto East Ocean Boulevard, over the bridge, to reach Lantana’s main corridor of small diners and boutiques. If you want waterside views for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, then pick from the various restaurants. Right from Bicentennial Park, start an expedition into two eco-marvels – Lake Worth Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway.
