QUESTION: How is the shoreline and water in Fort Lauderdale? ? Is it as rowdy as they make it look on the news? ANSWER: The wild history of Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale is something the city might never shake. This beachtown is totally family friendly and a tropical oasis of bikinis, surf boards, happy hours, seafood, and watersports. It is a blast and is very calm in the morning and picks up steam all day.
A great way to get around in Fort Lauderdale is on the fat tire beach bike. Tour it all on the sand or sidewalks. They also have a nice Water Taxi system. You get to jump on and off at the restaurants. The water taxis cruise the historic riverfront and have a big map to show you the attraction stops.
The sand gets soft fast as you move away from the shore. The fifty yards up to the hotel is a chore! I am not kidding, it is eight inches thick and how those people play volleyball in it is a mystery to me.
Hi...Also, I wanted to toss out Hollywood Beach which has a total vibe equal to Miami and Fort Lauderdale, with slightly less headaches and opens up more great South Florida Beach Vacation options. That would be another place to look for a sweet spot for a value, deal or discount. I just want to be able to park the car like a normal person!
I kind of thought the Fort Lauderdale zone would be good for a March Vacation. There is lots to do in all directions, plus the little beach town areas to bike and peek around. You do not have to drink adult beverages, I like the coffee shops and cookie places!
