Fort Lauderdale isn’t just for people who want to play bridge all day and are looking to live off the nest egg for the rest of their days. Oh, it’s so much more than that. Check out the emerging foodie scene on Las Olas Boulevard and then soak up the sun at Las Olas Beach. There’s more, but you’ll have to book a stay at our Fort Lauderdale accommodation to find out.
Things to Do in Fort Lauderdale
Do you fancy yourself a gearhead? Even if you don’t, you’ll still enjoy a visit to the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum. This place features automobiles from the 1900s to the 1940s. Your eyes will enjoy feasting on a 1909 Packard Model 18 Speedster, a 1921 Packard Model 3-35 Twin-Six Phaeton and of course, a 1940 Packard Super Eight. This Packard guy built a lot of cars.
When you get hungry, roll on down to Las Olas Boulevard, conveniently located near many Fort Lauderdale hotels. There’s everything from small coffee shops serving up café lattes to 5-star seafood joints with oysters that will make you wonder where they’ve been your whole life. When your appetite has been taken care of, stick around into the evening and watch this place transform into nightlife central. This city was a huge destination for on-holiday college students back in the ’80s, but it doesn’t appear to have slowed down one bit.
Getting to & Around Fort Lauderdale
Your trip to “the Venice of America” will begin when you land at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), 5 km from downtown. Getting to the hotels in Fort Lauderdale is easy; you can use the Broward County Transit Bus Route 1, hail a cab from any number of taxi companies or use one of the courtesy shuttles. Of course, the easiest way to get around the city is by using one of Wotif’s car hire options in case you want to take a few days off and go somewhere else…like a theme park. Check out our great offers on Orlando accommodation and enjoy cotton candy while riding a coaster.
