Some activities for your Fort Lauderdale vacation

Whether you are planning a day trip or a week-long trip, here are some things you must do while in Fort Lauderdale.

Fort Lauderdale Beach
  1. The Beach

    Florida Beach

    There’s no better place to soak up Florida’s sun than on Fort Lauderdale Beach. With over seven miles of beaches, you can choose to rent a wave runner or paddle board at Aloha Water Sports or simply relax on the beach and enjoy the views of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Located between Highway A1A and the beach, make sure to see the Wave wall and promenade. This “wavy” beach wall is over a mile long and is a great place to sit and lookout at the blue ocean waters. After you visit the Wave wall, stroll along the promenade which is full of shops, restaurants and entertainment.

  2. The Everglades

    White Crane Bird

    Explore Florida’s famous everglades up-close at Everglades Holiday Park. Take an airboat tour and ride across the everglades and see a variety of birds and animals in their natural habitat. You can also see their “Gator Show” and maybe even see a baby alligator up-close and personal. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop and general store to pick up unique souvenirs such as alligator teeth.
