Fort Lauderdale is more than just a popular cruise port or a mecca for the spring break crowd. Nestled between bright blue ocean waves and the Everglades, Fort Lauderdale offers fun in the sun for all.
Nicknamed ‘The Venice of America’, the city features an extensive canal system where you can lose yourself in a romantic gondola ride – no passport required! Or follow us as we explore some other favorite features of this sunny city.
Complement your Fort Lauderdale adventures by staying at a boutique hotel that suits your unique traveling needs.
The Fort Lauderdale area is well known for its arts, culture and beaches. There’s also fantastic shopping on Las Olas Blvd, the historic riverfront and gondola rides on the canal. Options are endless, so here are just a couple of our favs.
Some things are just meant to go together… and one of our favorite combos is burgers, bacon and beer! The 3 B’s are the main attraction at The Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. Amazing food and delicious craft beers on a rotating menu… you’ll need nothing more.
Along the beautiful blue-green waters of the Atlantic Ocean lies Dania Beach, a hidden gem just north of the city of Hollywood. If you’re looking for secluded stretches of sand, you have arrived at the right place. This small, family-friendly beach town is a true piece of Americana.
Hit up Las Olas Blvd! By day, this street is home to many great shopping and dining outlets. But by night, the sound is turned up and the scene is to be seen. Check out contemporary American restaurant YOLO (where you can watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen) and indulge in a hand-crafted cocktail or rich dessert - because hey, You Only Live Once!
At Stayful, we love the water – sea, lake or otherwise – and since Fort Lauderdale is perfectly situated between the ocean, canals and Everglades, it’s an ideal destination for our fellow aqua-philes.
A stroll through the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District is the perfect beginning or end to a great day at the beach. Located on the stunning New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale, the Riverwalk offers unique shops, concerts and galleries.
The Granada Inn in Fort Lauderdale tops our list of hotels with great value and amazing service. Located only ½ block from the beach, you’ll be close to the action, yet far enough away to get a great night’s sleep. Relax on the sun deck or use your in-room kitchenette to put together a quick snack.
