There are many things to do in Fort Lauderdale, but spring break is one of the first things that comes to mind. Now then, what else,
1. Hit The Beach in Fort Lauderdale
The beaches in Fort Lauderdale can offer everything you could ever need from a great beach trip beautiful white sand, crystal-clear water, and great year-round weather. Greater Fort Lauderdale has an incredible 23 miles worth of sun-kissed beaches, the majority of them being easily accessible from hotels and restaurants. Taking a dip in the warm Atlantic waters is a must on your trip to Fort Lauderdale, with so many beautiful beaches to choose from;
- Deerfield Beach – has America’s first cable water ski park, volleyball, fishing, outdoor eateries, and sandcastle building, sounds fun!
- Hillsboro Beach – is a great place to relax and chill, a genuinely reasonable time is waiting for you here.
- Pompano Beach – perfect for the more sporty types.
- Lauderdale-by-the-Sea – charming old “beach village,” check it out on a Friday night when the street is closed for a live music show – not to miss.
- Fort Lauderdale – is now known officially as a “beach chic” destination. If you’re a “beach chic” kinda’ person, then this is where you should head for us.
- Dania Beach – is pretty, but not pretty crowded, a great place for a little peace and swimming, picnicking, kayaking just lazing around and watching the clouds drift.
- Hollywood Beach – home of the Broadwalk, a whole 2.5 miles of it, there’s also an excellent doggy beach for your four-legged friend.
- Hallandale Beach – has loads of outdoor sports, swimming, golf, salt-water fishing. A popular hang out for the guys!. You never know who you’ll bump into at the beach in Fort Lauderdale.
2. The Everglades – Don’t Forget Your Bug Spray
The Everglades National Park is a fantastic place to visit during your trip to Fort Lauderdale. Lots of the park is primitive and perfect for exploring for those who love to hike, camp, and canoe! If you don’t have the time for that, then visit for the day, it’ll blow your mind. There are more than 1.5 million acres of swamps and sub-tropical jungles where you could be lucky enough to come into contact (not too close contact) with endangered species – the American Crocodile. The West Indian Manatee (you may have noticed them taking a day out at the beach) and the elusive Florida Panther. While visiting the Everglades National Park, you might like to;
- Take an Airboat tour – if they offer you ear protectors take them, it gets mighty noisy when to start moving
- Ride a canoe – the perfect way to truly experience the River of Grass, rent one from Flamingo, and explore the Everglades as unobtrusively as possible.
- Take a hike – there are plenty of trails to choose from, and they don’t all take all-day – The Gumbo Limbo Trail is only half-mile and fully paved, the Anhinga Trail is 0.8 miles. We’re not talking severe hiking here, only a critical experience.
3. Flutter Down To Butterfly World – Fort Lauderdale
Butterfly World is a different Fort Lauderdale experience. There’s something so different about butterflies. They’re so fragile, beautiful and delicate, the metamorphosis is just mind-boggling, no matter how many times you’ve seen it, and they have such a short life expectancy! I’m glad I’m not a butterfly. Anyway, Butterfly World at Fort Lauderdale is the birthplace of more than a million butterflies – it’s a farm, a research center, and a great place to visit. If you are planning for this trip and need a cheap flight, then visit Delta Airlines Reservations site to book and save money.
4. Museum of Discovery and Science, Fort Lauderdale
The place is impressive for the Children, even those who are 21 years old. It does offer an adventurous learning experience for the entire family with more than 200 exhibits, which include bats, snakes, and the largest living coral reef in captivity (watch out for the sharks) – what a claim to fame! Add to that the opportunity to hang out with turtles, iguanas, pet alligators prepared to be amazed. If you prefer to live life in the fast lane and fancy going to the final frontier where no man has gone before, don’t forget to try your hand at the Runways to Rockets space. Exhibit taking a simulated trip to another planet, the Moon or Mars are waiting for you.
5. Flamingo Gardens, Fort Lauderdale
This 60-acre sanctuary showcases all of the natural beauty of the Everglades under one roof. Well, it isn’t under a tent, but it’s still all in the same place. There are plenty of rare and exotic animals and plants to discover, as well as a tour of a working citrus grove and a free-flight aviary. Flamingo Gardens, Fort Lauderdale, really is well worth a visit.
6. Las Olas Riverfront, Fort Lauderdale
You haven’t seen Fort Lauderdale at it’s best until you’ve taken a stroll down Las Olas Riverfront. It’s just the hottest place in town, where you can eat, drink and make merriment from sun up until sundown and beyond. If you’re nautically minded, then pull up your boat and dock along the riverfront for free. Many of the Las Olas restaurants will come right up and serve you onboard! Now that’s what I call service.
You can still enjoy the very most beautiful things Fort Lauderdale has to offer at Las Olas without a boat. Shopping, eating, drinking, dancing the night away Las Olas has it all!
