The former Mecca for millions of college students and spring breakers, Fort Lauderdale has grown into a year round resort for all ages and families. From swimming to shopping and cruise ships to nature in the Everglades, you can find it here.
If you are strictly interested in the Beachfront, all the major Hotel chains have accomodations, including the Marriot Harbor House, Howard Johnsons, Hyatt and more. Numerous “boutique hotels and B&B’s can be found in Lauderdale by the Sea and more. A local favorite is the Riverside Hotel, a landmark and cozy hotel located on Las Olas Boulevard.
Inexpensive and tastes good too! Lester’s Diner, The Floridian Restaurant on Las Olas, Tom Jenkins BBQ on Federal Highway near downtown, Mangoes – Las Olas, The Georgia Pig (okay, so it’s in Plantation, but you MUST put some south in your mouth) 441 (State Road 7) just south of Broward Boulevard. Cheesecake Factory – Las Olas. More Pricey… Pa D’Gennaro – absolutely Delicious and little known Italian Gem on A1A just South of Commercial Boulevard. Runway 84. Very well-known “Goombah” kind of place. Cafe Maxx – Las Olas.
Great and cheap stuff to do.. Hit the Beach. Miles of great beaches.
