By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! One of our guests just shared something with me that I wanted to pass along to you all!

The current issue of The New Yorker has a profile on her and it has some enlightening information about her connection to Fort Lauderdale. As it ...

Yoga Joint South & a day with the kids

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Yesterday I had the best day with the kids! We started our day at Yoga Joint South, which is about 2 minutes from Lago Mar, just over the 17th Street Causeway Bridge. I did the Hot Yoga class with my oldest daughter, Demi, while my other three kids participated in the Kids' Yoga Class at the same time. How great is that? Everyone had a great workout and a lot of fun! After yoga, ...

New Year’s Eve: 2013 That’s a Wrap

Hi! What a week we have had at Lago Mar! I'd have to say that on a scale of 1 - 10 the weather has been about a 10! Sunshine everyday and great temperatures has made all of our guests very happy! I have heard more than one person say that they can't believe they are sunbathing on the beach while their friends up north are freezing. I have spent most of the week at Lago Mar with my kids and ...

Tonight's Easter activities had about 80 of the sweetest kids from all over the world coloring Easter eggs, eating pizza and decorating white bags to use for the hunt tomorrow, all of this while watching a couple of Easter movies. I have never heard "Thank ...

Friday Night at Lago

Hi! Friday night we had so much fun at Lago Mar. First, Demi had a tennis lesson with Jeff Chanin, our tennis pro of 20 years. I can only tell you that everyone young and old loves to work with him. (I have even heard some ladies say they have trouble keeping their eyes on the ball when he is teaching!) Demi and he played on one of our four courts. We have two courts on top of the parking garage ...

Friday Night Fish Special

Hi! Last night my husband and I took the kids to Lago Mar for the Friday Night Fish Special. The Wahoo, a local fish, was broiled with a cantaloupe citrus salsa and served with ginger purple mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables. It was probably one of the most delicious meals I have ever had, and pretty healthy too. We sat out on the patio because it was an absolutely perfect evening, about 70 degrees with a full moon. The whole ocean ...

Sea Turtles

While Fort Lauderdale is known as the, “Venice of America” and is probably the last place you would think to find baby sea turtles running around you will be in for a great surprise on your next visit when you find out that that is far from the truth. Here at Lago Mar I myself have personally had a chance to view these wonderful creatures and watch the process of nesting. I was fortunate enough to take a trip to ...
