Pick Your Blue Wave Beach

There's still time to register for the reunion and join us in Ft. Lauderdale. If you're on the fence about attending, hop off on the right side of the fence - the one with Blue Wave beaches and lots of Brats!

What's a Blue Wave beach, you ask? "Blue Wave" is a certification from the Clean Beaches Coalition that indicates a clean, safe, accessible and thoughtfully managed beach.  In Texas, for example, there is only 1 "Blue Wave" beach - Rockport Beach.  In Greater Ft. Lauderdale, there are 6 (six) for you to choose from!


 Fort Lauderdale Beach
(2 mi/9 min.)

This is the closest beach to the reunion hotel, just a hop across the 17th St bridge over the Intercoastal Waterway and a short jog onto Seabreeze Blvd. The hotel runs a complimentary, 12-seat shuttle every 2 hr on a first-come, first-served basis that will drop you at the entrance to Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, but it's close enough for a good walk, or you can always Uber it (~$6).
Dania Beach
(7 mi/18 min.)

One of the least crowded and prettiest stretches of beach is on the other side of Port Everglades from the hotel. Ocean Park Beach sports an impressive fishing pier.  It's a great place to enjoy the views and dine on fresh seafood.
(7.6 mi/21 min.)

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is a quaint, vintage beach town north of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. An active coral reef is just 100 yd offshore, making this the #1 spot for beach diving in Florida!

Hollywood Beach
(8.8 mi/21 min.)

Travel + Leisure named the 2.5-mi long "Hollywood Broadwalk" one of America's Best Beach Boardwalks. Enjoy people-watching at the seaside cafes or rent some wheels and join the fun.  This retro beach town is also home to Dog Beach of "Marley and Me" fame. 

Pompano Beach
(14 mi/23 min.)

Touting the warmest, clearest waters courtesy of a kink in the Gulf Stream, Pompano Beach is a great spot for the water sport enthusiasts - deep sea fishing, scuba diving, beach name it! If you're looking for the top-rated fishing pier, this is it!
Deerfield Beach
(20 mi/28 min.)

The northern most beach in the Greater Ft. Lauderdale area, Deerfield Beach is a family playground. Take surfing lessons at Island Water Sports or enjoy cable tow water skiing at Quiet Waters Park.
