This upscale retreat, set on 16 waterfront acres, is the perfect setting for a seaside getaway.
This eclectic destination is a bastion of art and culture. One of the best ways to see it all is via the renowned Riverwalk, which spans the banks of the New River. Florida’s “most beautiful mile” is comprised of tropical landscapes, paved walkways, a plethora of shops and numerous historic attractions. Fort Lauderdale is also near the world-famous Everglades, and a daytrip to this subtropical wilderness is a must.
Fort Lauderdale Beach Park is the ideal destination for families, outdoor enthusiasts and sun-worshipers. In addition to the picturesque beach, you will find volleyball courts, basketball courts, BBQ grills, picnic tables, a playground and more. No trip to Fort Lauderdale is complete without a stroll along Las Olas Boulevard, which is teeming with trendy boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, bars, sidewalk cafés and stunning architecture; taking an airboat ride in Everglades National Park, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, where you can see a manatee, American crocodile or an elusive Florida panther; and taking a trip through time at the Bonnet House, a plantation-style house that is listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and is a cultural partner of the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District.
The best time to visit Fort Lauderdale is during shoulder season, April through May and September through November, in order to avoid the summer crowds. If visiting the Everglades, plan your trip for the dry season, December through April.
