The One Thing You Don’t Want to Miss

People have been flocking to Fort Lauderdale’s beaches for decades. And with good reason. Fort Lauderdale Beach is a two-mile strip of beautiful beach featuring the recently renovated Promenade, which offers all sorts of bars, restaurants and shops.

Other Fun Things to Do

  • Take a narrated drive through Port Everglades over the Intercoastal Waterway and along the famous Fort Lauderdale Beach. Explore the International Swimming Hall of Fame, Las Olas Boulevard, the Riverwalk area and more. Stop and see Esplanade Park, the crossroads of the Center for Performing Arts and the Museum of Discovery and Science. Take a 90-minute Intercoastal Waterway cruise, and hear a lively commentary from the boat’s captain on the history of the New River and Fort Lauderdale’s historic sites.

Get a Taste of Local Flavor

Fish is fresh and delicious in Florida. Grouper is probably the most popular choice and is served almost any way imaginable. You’ll find it fried, broiled, sautéed, and even served with pasta. But a true Floridian staple is a fresh grouper sandwich and fries eaten outside by the water. It’s hard to beat this old standby.
