Anyone acquainted with Fort Lauderdale would tell you that there are more than 50 things to do or places to visit in the city. However, you cannot possibly do all in one trip that is unless you are planning a fortnight or three week holiday at the least. So here are a few things to do in Fort Lauderdale Florida without which your holiday or trip would be absolutely incomplete.
This is a favorite for all and sundry, for those who live in Fort Lauderdale and for tourists. There is a reason why Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America. You can either take your boat or you can have a boat ride on the Intracoastal Waterway. Many tourists take this route to explore the whole city and often as transits. A must do while in the city.
Fort Lauderdale Beachfront
There is a saying that the best thing to do in any coastal city is to hit the beach. Fort Lauderdale Beachfront offers about 23 miles of unending and un-spoilt coastline and it is certainly among the finest not just in Florida but all of the United States.
Las Olas Riverfront
It would perhaps be time to let your hair down after the first two things in a day. Hitting the Las Olas Riverfront would be ideal for you. If you have your own boat then you can dock it in there for free and there is no better place to eat, drink and have some amazing fun than the Las Olas.
The Flamingo Gardens would be a wonderful experience for everyone. Recently, bird watching or birding is becoming quite popular in the United States, especially Florida. Whether you are a birder or not the Flamingo Gardens would be an exquisite experience.
While we are talking about nature and birds or animals, Everglades must be next on your list. Home to some endangered species, subtropical jungles and the vastness of the 1.5 million acres swamps, Everglades National Park is an unusual but one of the best public parks in the country.
Museum For Discovery & Science
While most museums make for a great fact finding adventure for kids and more often than frequently for adults as well, Museum for Discovery & Science always has something new to offer. Bonnet House Museum and Gardens is also a popular spot but a bit more about the history of the city and amazing landscaping, hence perhaps ideal for grownups only.
