You asked for East Coast. You begged for Florida. We heard you and are really excited to announce that, next year, the Brats will be flying in from all over the world to meet up in sunny South Florida for a long weekend of fun, friends, and adventure! Bring your bathing suit, shades, and sunny attitude because we're headed to Fort Lauderdale!
Situated on Florida's "Gold Coast" between Palm Beach and Miami, Fort Lauderdale is a popular tourist destination. From world-famous Blue Wave beaches to the natural wonders of the Everglades to the thriving arts scene and shopping venues, there is plenty to see and do. Over 300 miles of canals and inland waterways have earned it the nickname "Venice of America." In fact, it is home to over 100 marinas and 45,000 resident yachts!
