B-party location

My wedding is still over a year away, but my fabulous MOH is apparently gearing up already.  She wanted to know where I wanted my b-party.  She lives in NoLa (but family is based out of Florida; we went to high school together).


Three options: Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami


Weighing...


Orlando: where the wedding is happening, with several options for fun.  Some of my favorite local bars and is the most easily navigable for me.  I prefer pure downtown to Disney, but I lived there for at least 6 years and generally go there for real partying anyway.


Fort Lauderdale: I live here and am a teacher, and whenever I'm local and having a good time I get very conscious of the fact that I could run into parents or (god forbid) students.  But there are a lot of fun places here and tons of good food.


Miami: is scary.  And very difficult to navigate.  But is far enough away from work and unfamiliar enough to be totally memorable.  And the partying options are kind of endless.


About her?  She has never really lived in any of these cities, or "partied much" in them, but the last b-party she planned was in Tokyo.  She dresses up like a turkey for Thanksgiving for her little niece's entertainment.  To say she's a pro is an understatement.


What do you ladies think?

Orlando for sure!  Lots of fun stuff to do there and especially since you know the area.  I'm soooooooooooooo not a fan of Miami, that is totally overrated. Honestly it sucks IMO. 


FTL - I would feel the same way...wondering if you'd bump into anyone you knew down there (parents or students) LOL! Wonder how that would be?

I'd go for Orlando.  I lived in Miami for a looong time.. and while I LOVED it while I lived there and had my favorite hangouts, I'd probably avoid it as just a drop-in type location.

Have you ever think about the west coast of FL.  For me the type of living is way different, very quiet.  I can't talk about Tampa because I never been there before.
