Plus there are shops, places to eat, and many other kinds of establishments to see. Of course, you can also swim and enjoy sun bathing.
Riverwalk & Las Olas Riverfront
The Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk and Las Olas Riverfront curve along the New River, and it goes from Stranahan House to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Along the walk you will find things to do like culinary tastings and other events, as well as be able to see various interesting sights, restaurants and stores.
Go on a ride on a 40 foot long glass-bottom boat that takes you along the Intracoastal waterways and into the ocean where you get a chance to go snorkeling and see lots of marine life on the natural reef or you can go on a scuba trip, see shipwrecks and more.
The Cinema Paradiso is a weird, interesting place, as it used to be a church and is now a cinema. You will find soft velvet seats, and get to see film festival entries, as well as independent and European films, and lots of children’s programs.
Made completely from Dade County pine, the grand Stranahan House is a great example of Florida’s vernacular design, and is one of the state's oldest homes.
Hugh Taylor Birch State Recreation Area
This tropical park has one of the last noteworthy maritime hammocks in Broward County, as well as mangroves and a freshwater lagoon system where you can see birds, plants and animals or go fishing, take a walk or go biking along the trails.
