Ft. Lauderdale or Miami for "baby-boomer" couple

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are early/mid-fifties. He will be in Miramar on business for a few days and then we will spend just a couple of nights on our own before returning home- I am choosing between Ft. Lauderdale or Miami- maybe South Beach.
Any advice on choosing? We like fine food, but are not too interested in upscale shopping, other than perhaps a nice art gallery. And we enjoy nice restaurants, bars, hotels- but we're not looking to go "clubbing". I have no problem sitting by a nicely landscaped pool with a book.
I am at the verge of reserving the Pillars hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, but I am afraid of "missing something" if I don't take the opportunity to visit Miami while we are in the area. If ultimately decide to stay in Ft. Lauderdale, is it worth it to drive down from Miramar earlier in the week (after he finishes work), for just an evening to have dinner in South Beach? Or any other ideas on how to get a taste, without actually staying in Miami, which might be too much "action" for us. I don't have a real idea of what the areas are like and maybe I am just totally offbase. We're going in a few weeks and I haven't really done any research yet; my husband's employer has a habit of canceling/changing plans at the last minute so I seldom travel with him.
Any ideas would be welcome..
