Ft. Lauderdale has plenty of things to do, whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure. Located on the southeastern coast of Florida, it’s one of the ten largest cities in the state. The city borders the Atlantic Ocean and contains a variety of inland waterways, so you’ll see why Ft. Lauderdale is considered the Venice of America. Try a swamp tour and see some gators, or enjoy some of the city’s great dining scene. You may be flying into Ft. Lauderdale to hop on a cruise, but don’t forget to explore all that the city has to offer, either before or after you set sail.
Plan a trip to Ft. Lauderdale to see Las Olas Boulevard which features the city’s shopping district. From cute boutiques to enticing nightlife, the boulevard is full of a variety of cool places. Stop by one of the many cafes along the boulevard for a bite of seafood or a burger, or enjoy shopping in the stores. Pick up a new swimsuit to wear at the beach. There are plenty of night clubs along Las Olas too, so stay from morning to night. Access the boulevard via the Ft. Lauderdale water taxi and enjoy wandering the one-mile stretch.
Ft. Lauderdale’s Riverwalk is another great area of the city to see. Walk along the banks of the New River in the park, and visit art galleries, museums, and more, or enjoy a boat tour on the river. Here, you can also hop on a bike tour to experience the entire city, or ride a Segway. Have dinner at one of the restaurants along the Riverwalk and stroll through the park after dessert.
