suggestion for 2 days after florida keys and miami beach, close to Fort Lauderdale (not west coast or orlando)

I will be spending 4 days in the keys followed by 4 days in Miami Beach. Looking for suggestions where to spend my last 2 days prior to departing from FLL. I don't want to go too, which leaves out the west coast and orlando. I am considering Ft Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Palm Beach or ??. Any recommendations? Thanks.

meant to say I don't want to go to far from Fort Lauderdale. Is Fort Lauderdale the best option? I like beautiful beaches.

Do you want to stay on the beach, and what kind of price range?

Check into Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. Chamber of Commerce site is at http://www.lbts.com/.

We stayed at a motel there last winter--I believe it wa La Cele. Spartan, clean, near the beach and sub-$100 in season. One warning: No checks or credit-cards. Far enough out, they'll take a check as a deposit, but they want real money.

Check out the Greenbriar Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida.

Hollywood is between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale (it is actually the Hollywood/Ft.Lauderdale Aiport).

They have the prettiest beaches in South Florida. Lots to do and lots of fun on the Broadwalk (not boardwalk).

I highly recommend this.

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is also a great place. Love them both.

For GREAT information on both places, visit www.Sunny.org the official website for Broward County.
