On of the secret parking spots on Fort Lauderdale beach is the off street metered locations, which are often at the end of the street. You will find it on alhambra street, just past the Alhambra Beach Resort. We like to park here and use the bicycles to get around. The main benefit of the parking garage spots is the shade. Parking along the street is faster and you have lots more places around the area. I would recommend to all to try some of the classic places. Go to Primanti Brothers for late lunch or early dinner. It is one of the places I would really like to eat at. The other place I would really like to eat at is the Floridian Restaurant. It is a famous breakfast place on Las Olas Boulevard near our rental apartment. I will treat there anytime and any day of the week. The food will be similar to maggie mae's in Treasure Island, good home cooking at a low price. Using bicycles to move about is the way to go.
