                              Car: Recommended

                              Fort Lauderdale is famous for its beaches, arts, food, culture and events. From shopping on Las Olas Boulevard, the world-famous beaches, to gondola rides on the canals, to a historic riverfront, Fort Lauderdale is what a vacation should be.

                              The City of Wilton Manors is just north of downtown Fort Lauderdale and is often referred to as the “Island City” because its boundaries primarily follow the North and South Forks of the Middle River. Ideally located within minutes of the beach and downtown Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors is quickly becoming the “place to be” in South Florida.

                              The area adjacent to Wilton Drive, the City’s signature thoroughfare, is home to the Arts and Entertainment District. Within the District, mixed-use development provides for a pedestrian-oriented environment where residents and visitors can shop, dine, and experience the best of South Florida Living. The City has a great deal of parks and open space as well.

                              Other Activities: Taking sun in a variety of ways; at the beach, renting a boat for the day or just relaxing in your private pool. There is also shopping, jet-skying, parasailing, health/beauty spa, racquetball, miniature golf, admiring the amazing houses up & down the intercostal or just taking advantage of the abundance of incredible restaurants beach-side or throughout the city.

                              Golf: There is a brochure in the house which indicates the nearest golf courses.

                              Why Private Homes:
                              I choose Wilton Manors because it is a very secure neighbourhood, close to the beach and great little cafés and boutiques. It is a very charming island in the middle of Fort Lauderdale.
