    Easy Walk with Free Shuttles
    We took the walk on a Friday about mid day in August. There are lots of yachts to see parked along the water's edge, with several drawbridges. There are few restaurants along the route with several a short distance away. There are free water taxis that can pick you up at select spots and bring you to other locations. The total distance end-to-end is less than a mile. A nice way to spend a couple hours, and do take the taxi for nice ride on the water.

    The Riverwalk is a must see and enjoy while you are in Ft Lauderdale
    The views of the New River and all the boats are amazing. The walkway provides a great way to see the river and enjoy the outside cafes and restaurants along the Riverwalk. The New River Cafe is a must stop for either a coffee or a light lunch. You can get a Water Taxi or the Water Trolley right out side the New River Cafe.

    Great get away
    Enjoyed our beach front walks. Took a Water Taxi Tour. It was very educational and beautiful views of homes and yachts. Walk Los Olas boulevard and experienced the stores. Divers were practicing at the International swimming hall of fame. Many platforms to practice from. Did not tour the museum. Will definitely do that when come back to Fort Lauderdale.

    A couple fantastic days in Fort Lauderdale!
    We found this hotel to be perfect for our couple nights in Fort Lauderdale. the location was great, with tons of restaurants to choose from. The hotel itself it in excellent condition considering it's age. The staff were all commendable.

    Yacht watching
    Just walk for awhile, sit on the benches and enjoy the scenery. The people watching is good, the dog watching is better, and the yacht watching is amazing. This goes for quite a distance so it really doesn't matter where you stop and start. The bridges provide crossover opportunities as long as the drawbridge is not up. Mostly residential along the sides with few restaurants.

    Always Fun
    This is a place that we love to revisit when we are in Ft. Lauderdale. We have a brick there on the walkway. It’s always fun to try to remember where it is. I only wish they maintained it better. We also don’t like the iguanas that are scurrying about. They weren’t there when we lived in Ft. Lauderdale from the 1980’s till 2000.

Not bad but most for the boat tour !
The search for celebrities is less interesting. Search for at least discount, there is some. The place is not easy to find.

Nice area downtown to go for a walk. Not a lot right on the Riverwalk, but a lot of of interesting boat tours. Not something I would do every time to Fort Lauderdale but nice

We walked between the NSU art museum and the Ft. Lauderdale History museum on the river walk. It was a short walk with stores along the way.
