Visitors to Fort Lauderdale get to languish on beaches in the midst of fun events, interesting culture and arts. In fact, there’s a whole Arts and Entertainment District just a few minutes from the beach, which visitors can find along the “red brick road" of Riverwalk. Here, you will be able to enjoy the Museum of Discovery and Science with its AutoNation 3D IMAX Theater, Stranahan House, Florida Grand Opera and more.
Water sports, sightseeing cruises, parks, restaurants and shopping abound and visitors can also drop by the Stranahan House which is a preserved 1900s home with antiques. Those interested in the high life will be interested in taking a peek at the yachts and mansions dotting Millionaires Row here in Fort Lauderdale and on the canals where you will be able to experience magical gondola rides.
The beach with its signature white wave wall and its wonderful, landscaped, beachfront lie across the street from an amphibious, 90-minute, narrated tour of Las Olas Boulevard. Here, guests will also find luxury hotels to stay in.
Check out some of these places to stay from VRBO.
