    A nice gay-friendly beach area. Very wide expanse of sandy beach with chairs and umbrella rentals. In December, we were there a couple of days. The weather was near 80 and the water was fairly comfortable. The beach is located near hotels, restaurants, and some bars. And there is public parking within walking distance. When we were there, there were some people on the beach. I'm sure during warmer times of the year, it gets very busy. We shall return.

    Visiting Bonnet House is a great way to spend an afternoon and a good way to escape the faster pace of life surrounding this beautiful property. The landscape, gardens, works of art, artifacts and the buildings are stunning and diverse. Take advantage of the guided tour! Our tour guide was Sid Goldenberg who was lively, entertaining, and provided so much information about this historical site. After the tour, we roamed around the grounds and bumped into other docents who were only more than willing to answer any questions. Don’t miss visiting this charming hidden gem.

    Lovely view under the sun with a lot of beautiful views. I accidentally passed there twice on my way to the museums and was impressed by their clean arrangements and trash cans spread in an orderly way.

    Generally a clean beach, except when Spring Breakers are in town and dump their trash on the sand, as is happening now. Still, this beach area is well maintained. Lifeguard stands. Basketball court. Restaurants across the street. Walkers and joggers on the sidewalk bordering the beach. Meter parking available.

    I got in on foot and was impressed by the layout of the park that offered both pedestrian and walking and running options in different tracks. I even got to see turtles wooing each other along with many other fascinating flora and fauna - a definite gem in Ft. Lauderdale!

    I am not sure if there is more than one Riverwalk. The one I visited and strolled does not resemble the one shown in the pictures here. It was located on the opposite side near the Old Fort Lauderdale Village. It is a short walk by the river with a couple of restaurants and pleasant views.

    I had a cruise booked with Holland America Lines, thus... I had to be at Port Everglades. A place I would normally not visit at all because the main purpose is being a harbour.

    I went there by accident because of the construction nearby but this is a hidden gem and everyone should visit! The house and the couple who used to live there are like the history of the whole Fort Lauderdale! The tour guide is a very knowledgeable gentleman in his 80s - he knows the city like his neighborhood and check this place out!!!

    We never saw one that looked like this picture - they all looked like regular city buses. It sounds like Sun Trolley has been taken over by the city now. The good news is it is all FREE. There are several routes, but the two most important for tourists are the one that goes up and down AIA (40) and the one that goes to Las Olas and AIA (11). They come about every 35-45 minutes so if you miss it there is a wait, but you can just keep walking to the next stop in the meantime because the stops aren't that far apart. The best way to find the stops is to use google maps and choose the "bus" icon instead of car or walking....the apps and maps the city advertises weren't helpful.

    Great to see living theater after a two year hiatus. The theater has comfortable seats, very good sound system, and some great performances.

    Really enjoyed this small museum on a recent trip to S. Florida. Had a couple of hours to kill with a few family members who are art buffs. 

    Parking across the street in a general garage was easy enough. I had to check my bottle of water, but I understand -- protect the art! One of the reasons this museum caught our eye was the Keith Haring exhibit. Even my teenager is a fan of his work. We all really enjoyed the collection, which explored the impact that the work of Pierre Alechinsky had on Haring. There were some amazing pieces!

    We also really enjoyed the Lux et Veritas exhibit, which showcases works by Yale School of Art for graduate students. 

    Would definitely recommend if you're in the area and have a couple of hours to spare.

    Very large and busy unlike the malls across the US that are closing down. After 30 minutes I had shopped only part of one store..... lots to see, lots of shops.
