At Brampton Park Rentals, we believe South Florida, home to the ever-beautiful Everglades, the Miami Dolphins, and white sand beaches, is the best place in the world to vacation! Not only are you able to enjoy dipping your toes in the sand and splashing in the ocean, but there are numerous water activities in freshwater lakes and streams, as well as intracoastal waterways.
There are limitless possibilities to vacationers in South Florida, (known as SoFlo to our locals). Here are some of our favorite things to do when visiting SoFlo cities such as Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Deerfield Beach, and Boynton Beach.
