What do Kid Rock, Bill Gates, Howard Stern, and Tommy Lee Jones (among others) have in common?
All of us who live here in South Florida know that it’s paradise. And let’s face it, even occasional tourists realize that there’s no place on earth quite like our sunny slice of the USA. So it’s really no surprise that celebrities not only love to visit cities like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach, many of them choose South Florida as their home (or at least their second or third one). Just like us regular folks, the rich and famous know a good thing when they see it.
The only real question is, why does South Florida win out over other, well-known celeb destinations like Los Angeles and New York? Here’s the answer:
No matter how much money you have, if you’re smart, you spend it wisely! And in South Florida, living the opulent lifestyle can be achieved at a much more affordable price. If you compare the same sized properties in a prime location in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca, or Palm Beach to any in NY or LA, you’ll find that South Florida is a better value. And even celebrities with tons of capital can appreciate a good deal.
This one’s a no-brainer, really. While LA and New York have certain allures, no other destination can compare to South Florida when it comes to the weather. Yes, the summers are hot and humid, but where else can you spend Christmas Day on the beach – or any other day, for that matter (winter, spring, or fall)?
Our tropical climate affords celebrities the ability to enjoy the outdoors all year long. Cruising Ocean Drive or Las Olas Boulevard with the top down and the sunglasses on is an any-day-of-the-year experience, not to mention outdoor dining or drinks by the water as balmy ocean breezes blow through your (well-coiffed) hair.
An abundance of amenities
When it comes to amenities, South Florida delivers in a big way. And for celebrities looking for relaxation, action, and entertainment, there’s truly something that appeals to every taste. From activities on the water (boating, fishing, parasailing, water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking, or paddle boarding), to theater, museums, professional sports, golf, and of course, all of the magnificent beaches, it doesn’t matter if you’re a Kardashian or Burt Reynolds — famous folks find their pace and peace in South Florida.
None of this is to mention the eclectic assortment of dining options. From sidewalk and water-front cafes to fine dining, gastro pubs, bistros, and casual eateries, celebrities can indulge their appetite for varied and truly international cuisine.
Is that Celine Dion in those dark sunglasses at the table next to me? Folks who live in South Florida are a little less star struck than most because it’s not uncommon to spot a celeb on South Beach or in other local hot spots. This area is an ideal option for celebrities who are just looking for a little peace outside of the spotlight.
From sprawling mansions nestled among banyan trees to palatial water-front properties, South Florida provides numerous options for celebrities who are lured to our beautiful paradise.
