Local Guide

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.

More oink, oink!

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.

No shirt, no shoes – Come on in!

The Fishing Pier at Dania Beach, Florida

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.

Once the sun goes down

Stroll through South Florida’s most eclectic shopping and dining district – Image courtesy of lasolasboulevard.com

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!

What We Love

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.

Walk this way

The unique sights and sounds of the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District are all withing walking distance of the beautiful New River

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.

Get the Grand Treatment at Granada Inn

European hospitality and personalized service will win you over in no time (if the coconut palms surrounding the pool don't do it first)

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.
