Out and About in Fort Lauderdale
As you settle in for some R&R at one of the Fort Lauderdale beach hotels, know that this city offers more than just sun, surf, and sand. Often compared to Venice due to its canal system, you can live out your Italian dreams with a gondola ride. Then, continue taking in the culture with a visit to the Arts and Entertainment District, where you can see a performance at the Broward Center for Performing Arts or appreciate the collection at the Museum of Art.
This city has lots to offer outdoors as well. For instance, you can soak up some Florida sunshine as you fish on a pier or go on a deep sea fishing excursion. No matter which of the Fort Lauderdale hotels you choose, know that you can easily explore the area with nothing more than a bike and some pedal power. Second only to boating, it's one of the best ways to take in the views.
Eating and Drinking
Outdoor dining is also immensely popular in Fort Lauderdale, with many waterfront eateries featuring docking options. Pull up a seat at Coconuts for fresh seafood and breathtaking views. Diner food and nostalgic celebratory photos will have you returning to the 24-hour Floridian for multiple meals during your stay.
