Flanked by the Everglades to the west and Florida’s Gold Coast to the east, Coral Springs is a great base to explore this state’s natural beauty. The city is small in comparison to some of its neighbours but offers respite from some of the spring break party resorts that Florida is known for. The Coral Springs Museum of Art and the Centre for the Arts provide some cultural depth, while the Sawgrass Nature Centre and Wildlife Hospital is a great place to learn about the native wildlife and environment.
Arrange car rental in Coral Springs to really make the most of your holiday. Head to the Everglades for boat trips and tours around the huge expanse of wetlands and swamps. Alligators and crocodiles are regularly spotted here, as are white-tailed deer, Florida panthers and bald eagles.
Fly to Miami Airport, which is an hour from Coral Springs. If you want to drive in then the I-95 and Route 869 run close by.
For a hire car in Coral Springs try Alamo, Thrifty or Dollar, which are among the companies available to collect from Miami Airport.
Half an hour from Coral Springs (a drive of 12 miles) is the coastal city of Pompano Beach. An historic lighthouse punctuates the coastline and the 1,000-foot-long pier offers prime fishing spots and beautiful views. This is also a popular place for diving thanks to a coral reef just off shore and a number of old shipwrecks. Tours and lessons can be arranged.
Head a little further down the coast and you get to the party city of Fort Lauderdale. It’s a 40-minute drive of about 30 miles from Coral Springs and boasts the archetypal Florida seafront with white sand and pastel lifeguard towers. The iconic white wave wall separates the beach from the paved seafront paths and cafes, and the busy shopping street of Las Olas Boulevard sits a few roads back.
If you have a rental car in Coral Springs you can also drive down to Hollywood (the Florida version), which is 40 minutes and just over 30 miles away and has a relatively quiet and pretty stretch of sandy beach. It’s a perfect stopping point on the journey down to Miami, which is an hour by car on the FL-869. Once you have spent some time in Miami’s bustling centre head down to the South Dade area where the city turns into lush countryside. Farms here sell exotic produce like avocados and papayas, some of which are sold on roadside fruit stalls. The Biscayne National Park is also worth visiting, but get your scuba gear on because of the park’s 2,000 acres, 95% of it is underwater - think mangroves and gorgeous coral reefs.
The roads around Coral Springs are mostly laid out in a grid system, making it feel quite straightforward to navigate. The I-95 runs the entire length of the west coast linking Florida with Washington, New York and Boston.
