    Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall Weather… Enjoy Them All (And Possibly Within One Day) at Broadway at the Beach

    It's that time of year when the hardest decision of the day is what to wear when the temperatures rise and fall on not just a daily basis, but even on an hourly basis. Whether it's cool, crisp mornings, or the warm sun beaming down during our drive home from work, it's safe to say what we wear and even what we do is dependent on the forecast!

    So if our day is anything like the meme above, here's how we will not only dress accordingly, but enjoy accordingly at Broadway at the Beach:

    Winter Chill: Start out your morning with a hearty and hot breakfast at Paula Deen's Family Kitchen where you can fill up on all your comfort food favorites including pancakes, biscuits and gravy, potatoes, bacon and that all important cup of coffee! It's the type of meal that will warm you up and fill you up all morning long!

    Spring Time Temps: It's not chilly, but still not swimsuit weather, but it's the perfect time to do some shopping for your favorites. From the trendy fashions of Gemini Boutique and Bijuju to your surfing favorites at Tsunami Surf Shop and Ron Jon Surf Shop, you can stroll through Broadway and peruse through today's latest and seasonal fashions in the comfortable cool breezes!

    Summer Sizzle: The heat of summer making a midday comeback? A milkshake from Johnny Rockets or ice cream from any of our lite bite eateries may make you sweetly enjoy the rising temperatures even more. Not one for sweating while wearing your sweater and leggings? Ripley's Aquarium, WonderWorks and Dave & Buster's will be a great place to beat the heat and enjoy games and indoor experiences.

    Fall Is In The Air: Similar to spring, it's that in between season where we find ourselves bundling up in the mornings and taking off the layers by mid-afternoon. This is the perfect time of year to watch football with friends at your favorite restaurant at Broadway, indulge in those pumpkin spice flavors of our ice cream shops and when the temperatures are just right, it's the time to walk around and enjoy a beautiful sunset overlooking Lake Broadway.
