Top 10 things to do in Fort Lauderdale by Isla Campbell
Famous as one of America's
favourite holiday destinations, Florida's Fort Lauderdale encompasses some
of the very best sights and attractions from the sunshine state, making
a rewarding year-round getaway. Renowned amongst the sailing community
for its many marinas, Fort Lauderdale has built up a steady and strong
army of visitors who travel to it every year for boating, yachting and
more. However, there are plenty of other reasons to visit this sun-kissed
beach destination, and here are ten of the most popular.
Though all of the beaches
in the area have their own unique character and perks, the most popular
by far has to be Fort Lauderdale Beach itself. Thousands of visitors are
drawn to this spotless beachfront all summer thanks to its miles of clean
sand, warm waters and backdrop of busy bars, clubs and restaurants. For
snorkelling around the famous Florida coral reef, head to Hillsboro Beach,
or spend a day on Hollywood Beach to feel like you're on a movie set.
Lauderdale, Florida, USA
After a long day's sunbathing,
stretch your legs a little at Sawgrass Recreation Park, where the Everglades
come to life. Jump on one of the airboat tours and let a knowledgeable
guide show you the real Everglades, complete with alligators and even reconstructed
Seminole Indian villages. Or jump aboard a Jungle Queen Riverboat Tour
to take a sightseeing trip of a lifetime up and down Florida's New River.
Stop off for a BBQ on the Jungle Queen Indian Village Island and keep an
eye out for wildlife on route.
'Florida's Most Beautiful Mile' is another equally good way of exploring
Fort Lauderdale. This bustling downtown walk will take you through the
city's historic district and past many of the top restaurants and museums,
including the Museum of Discovery and Science. Designed for the whole family,
this interactive museum is full of hands-on exhibits, a massive IMAX cinema
and even a replica of a living forest.
Discover even more of Fort
Lauderdale's indigenous wildlife by taking a visit to Butterfly World.
Themed around a large rainforest, this family attraction has thousands
of colourful butterflies, as well as caterpillars too, all in glass hot
houses. Over at Flamingo Gardens you can spend a day exploring real botanical
gardens, where dozens of these brightly-coloured wading birds live, as
well as other wild inhabitants, like the river otter and even the wild
Delving into Fort Lauderdale's
historic past couldn't be easier as the city's many museums and exhibitions
make learning about the area's history a treat. The Bonnet House Museum
& Gardens dates back to the 1920s and, as such, is listed on America's
National Register for Historic Sites. Once owned by artists Evelyn and
Frederic Bartlett, the house and extensive woodland and swampland grounds
were bequeathed to the Florida Trust and now remain as a conserved and
untouched reminder of the city's bygone days.
Whatever reason you choose
to visit this naturally vibrant and sun-kissed city, there are many Fort
Lauderdale Hotels and restaurants to enjoy in between attractions.
