Deerfield Beach is a beautiful, conveniently located South Florida beach town for a family friendly or couples getaway. With the gorgeous beaches, palm trees and sun year round, you can enjoy all the town has to offer any month of the year. Deerfield is located just 23 miles north of Fort Lauderdale airport. The beach is lined with some amazing restaurants, shops and places to stay. Many locals offer Airbnb’s, many of which have an ocean view or just a block from the beach.
Some of my favorite restaurants include JB’s on the Beach, The Whale’s Rib, Oceans 234, Amante’s and Rattlesnake Jake’s. For a fine dining restaurant experience, visit the city of Boca Raton, which is a few miles north. The restaurants are very family-friendly. JB’s and Oceans 234 sit right on the beach whereas the other restaurants are right across the street from the beach. Most of these restaurants serve seafood, however they serve American cuisine too. Amante’s is a great choice for Italian cuisine.
For a fun happy hour that sits right on the beautiful intercoastal waterway, I’d recommend The Cove Restaurant. It’s very lively and there’s live music as well.
For the adventurous people, Deerfield Beach offers rentals for various water sports. Island Water Sports is conveniently located right next to The Whale’s Rib and offers many rentals for a great price. Lessons are available as well.
One of the many reasons why I love this town so much is because you will get to know so many things that South Florida has to offer in one area. You don’t have to drive anywhere once you are there. It’s beautiful, relaxing and fun. There’s a convenience store 1 block off the beach and there’s plenty of stores. The pier is perfect for photos and looking out into the ocean and a locals favorite is fishing off the pier. The Deerfield Beach Boardwalk is a great place to enjoy bike riding, or a walk while enjoying views of the ocean.
Deerfield beach is less of a city vibe unlike Fort Lauderdale or Miami. It’s a great Florida beach town. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
