Bonnet House
Votes: 21

"Bonnet House is an unspoiled oasis in the concrete jungle of Fort Lauderdale beach. A charming surprise of blue and yellow, the 1920s house sits amid 35 acres of natural South Florida wildlife — both animal and vegetable. Tours are available for the house and grounds, or you may opt for a self-guided walking tour. A heavenly escape." — Rita Houldsworth

"Big City Dogs is what a real burger should taste like: never frozen, made each morning, and grilled to perfection. I went yesterday to the one on University Drive, and they had already run out of burgers. Guy, please prep more burgers. South Florida needs them." — Estelle V.
