The Fort Lauderdale Beachfront is a popular summer hangout in Fort Lauderdale, known for its iconic wave wall, palm tree-lined beachfront promenade, local boutiques and outdoor restaurants. Active travellers will also find a wealth of enthralling activities, from rollerblading and beach volleyball to scuba diving, snorkelling and windsurfing.
Looking for some local entertainment? Check out the bars and restaurants around Las Olas Beach, such as Blondies Sports Bar with a game room and pub grub, Mexican fare at The Drunken Taco and cocktails at Fat Tuesday Ft. Lauderdale. You can explore the beachfront on a hired Segway or bicycle, before renting a jet ski to cruise the waters just offshore.
Snap a holiday photograph at the Fort Lauderdale Chair, check out swimming and water sports memorabilia at the International Swimming Hall of Fame Museum, then browse souvenirs and fashion at Clothes Connection or Reflection. Want to relax? Picnic on the grass in Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, which is also a great place for fishing and hiking.
The Fort Lauderdale Beachfront is on the eastern side of Fort Lauderdale, about 15 minutes’ drive from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. You can catch buses to the beachfront, but it’s easier to rent a car or hail a taxi.
