Bringing the family to KScope??

If you're like me, there's no way the family is going to let me go to South Florida without them tagging along. Can you blame them? The Diplomat is ON THE BEACH I'm talking step out of the hotel and into the sand. While the beach is one serious attraction, there is much to do and see in South Florida.

I've done some research and found that giving the kids something new and exciting to do each day doesn't have to break the bank. Cue the South Florida Adventure Pass !!

The South Florida Adventure Pass allows unlimited admission to seven, count 'em seven, different Florida attractions for 40 clams! That's some serious savings. Let's see carry the one...that's five...feed a fever, starve a cold...uptown downtown pick a bale of cotton......you're going to save almost $100 per person!
