Weston, Florida timeshare vacations

We are taking a ladies trip April 21-April 28th, a Friday to Friday timeshare visit. It seems like airfare is high during that time. Are there schools on spring break starting that week or something? I have no children of any age so I am never really aware of it. Any must sees around Weston that time? I have been to Weston before but it was October. The only things we have done there before were shopping at Sawgrass Mills, visiting Steinmart, we love Steinmart, going to a big flea market this year we want pool time, shopping time, maybe KIng Tut in FLL, possibly Everglades, never ever did that my whole life, (I am 50).

Here are a few of some things you might find interesting. We just saw Dixie Carter & Hal Holbrooke at the Parker Playhouse...was really funny.

I don't like the Festival Flea Market in Pompano....but if you must go..their website has $20 or $ 25 worth of coupons....IMO there are no real bargains there and the Sunrise Swap Shop Flee Market & Circus is just a little better....Sawgrass has the real bargains....Cheesecake Factory, JC Penny outlet...Nieman Marcus..Disney Outlet...( Did I mention Cheesecake Factory :), Legal Seafoods, Rainforest Cafe, Wolfgang Pucks...

Go to www.tripadvisor.com to find the Festival website under Pompano.
