  • Lovely Condo...

    "This was our 2nd visit staying here - wonderful location - walking distance into town (Las Olas Blvd.) & beach. Condo was extremely clean, private deck overlooking the lagoon, peaceful & quiet setting. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. Close to shopping, restaurants, boating & sightseeing. We will be back . ."

  • Fantastic visit for two weeks

    "Me and my girlfriend stayed at this fantastic townhouse for two weeks in central fort lauderdale. Close walking distance to restaurants down at Las Olas but still quiet and comfy without any disturbances. If you're headed for the beach they have busses that will drive you back and forth from Las Olas. So this is pretty much the perfect location if you want quiet but lively, private but easy access to the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped which make is easy if you want to just stay at home and enjoy a meal by the poolbar or in the hottub or maybe on the roof terrace enjoying the multi room audio system in a all new set of furniture which was a surprise compared to the pictures. Overall a really great villa."

  • Thoughtful!

    "I have rented in fort Lauderdale before and this was by far the most confortable I have ever been. Every detail has been thought of to make you feel at home. Linens have been updated from what is shown in the pictures and there are even beach towels and toys for the kids provided. The neighborhood was very safe and the neighbors were all very friendly. My only suggestion would be to add some grips on the stairs to avoid accidents for children and elderly."

  • Sweet garden apartment, great location

    "This is a fantastic garden apartment right in the heart of Victoria Park. We were in the process of a move and needed a place to stay that was NOT a hotel and this was just great. It is absolutely lovely, very spacious with 2 full bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen (I cooked several meals here with no problem at all) and a king-size comfortable bed. The furnishings are great, very tasteful, tile floors throughout, all seems brand-new. Everything worked, big tv, great wireless, all of the comforts of home. There is a nice patio with table and chairs if you have time to enjoy coffee in the garden (which we did not). You can't beat the location, Victoria Park is gorgeous and it's only a short distance to the beach or to Las Olas. The best thing about this property though is the owner, John. What a great guy. He met us right on time, and I can tell he goes above and beyond, I was so impressed with him, he is so nice. He was readily available to answer any questions, we know Ft. Lauderdale well but if you needed guidance I know he would give it to you. You really can't go wrong here. Great experience, if we didn't find a permanent place in Ft. Lauderdale we would be back for sure."

Fort Lauderdale Travel Tips

If you're looking a vacation full of sun, warm temperatures, beaches, excellent dining and fun nightlife, Fort Lauderdale is the place for you.

While this Florida city may be known for its epic spring breaks, it's a great place to visit any time of year for families, friends or couples on a romantic getaway. Along the water's edge you'll find miles sandy shores, and when you come inland you'll have a variety of shops and dining options to sample throughout your stay. And with it's subtropical climate, it's an idyllic spot to escape the cold and snow or get a change of scenery during the warmer months.

Considered the "Venice of Florida," Fort Lauderdale features a unique and expansive canal system, so be sure to catch a gondola ride. The city offers a plethora of activities and attractions to explore, from arts and culture to live events and outdoor spaces.

Things to Do in Fort Lauderdale

- Bonnet House: In 1920, Chicago-born artist Frederic Clay Barlett created Bonnet House on land given to him and his second wife Helen Louise Birch by her father, Hugh Taylor Birch. For more than 70 years the families lived on the property, developing the 35 acres into what it is today. Now the house serves as a museum dedicated to historic and environmental preservation as well as creative expression. The main house is filled with a unique collection of art and personal artifacts from the families, while the gardends create a lovely tropical oasis and habitat for local wildlife.

- Museum of Discovery and Science: Head to the Museum of Discovery and Science, one of the largest museums of its kind in Florida, for a day of fun and adventure. An IMAX theater provides a 3-D look at science, and ecoscapes allow you to experience a simulated ride to Mars or a MaxFlight airplane. Peruse the extensive collection of Floridian animal species on display and see animal-centered demonstrations. While you're here, take a ride on an Everglades airboat adventure, dig for fossils, walk under a 12-foot-tall imperial mammoth and watch North American river otters play.

- International Swimming Hall of Fame: If you enjoy all things water sport-related, you'll love a trip to the International Swimming Hall of Fame and Museum. Learn more about famous moments in swimming history, the evolution of swimwear and see memorabilia belonging to people who've excelled in aquatics. The museum is dedicated to the memory and recognition of famous swimmers (both solo and synchronized), divers, water polo players and other people involved with aquatics.

- Hugh Taylor Birch State Park: Be sure to enjoy the outdoors while in Fort Lauderdale. An awesome place to do so is at the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Take an exhilarating hike along the trails or rent a canoe and paddle along a mile-long freshwater lagoon. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy as you experience the natural scenery, then fish off the sea wall or head out on a bike ride along the paved park road. You can also learn more about the area's natural and cultural history at the Terramar Visitor Center. Every Friday at 10:30 a.m., rangers offer guided park tours and feature themes like mangrove, tropical hardwood hammock, coastal dune lake and beach habitat. Guided segway tours are also available as well as kayak, bike and skate rentals.

Shopping and Dining in Fort Lauderdale

- Las Olas Boulevard: For a premier shopping experience in Fort Lauderdale, head to Las Olas Boulevard. Along the commercial stretch of the street you'll find a wonderful array of stores and boutiques as well as art galleries. This part of the boulevard is considered the riverfront area of downtown Fort Lauderdale, and the name las olas means "the waves" in Spanish. You'll certainly be able to spend plenty of time window shopping here and pick up fun souvenirs, then stop into a local eatery to refuel and enjoy a delicious meal as you discuss your favorite parts of your trip so far.

- Chima: Enjoy a Brazilian dining experience at Chima, named after a traditional drink of Rio Grande do Sul. Gauchos (meat waiters) roam the dining room floors offering churrasco of more than 14 different meats on huge skewers ranging from steak, lamb, chicken, fish and sausage. Brazilian and American flavors are combined here, and the salad bar is excellent.

- Laffing Matterz: Enjoy a meal with a side of side-splitting laughter at Laffing Matterz dinner theater. It's a live, original musical comedy spoofing current events and pop culture. Choose from a variety of delicious menu items like calamari, chicken, beef tenderloin, butternut squash ravioli and salmon, then sit back and enjoy the hilarious show that was named "best dinner theatre" by the Broward/Palm Beach New Times twice.
