    What a beautiful beach! it is right in the center of all the fun too - restaurants, bars, everything is right across the street from you, when you want your margarita - it's within a 2 minute walk! It's best to have children under supervision though because the traffic gets quite heavy and sometimes the cars go more than allowed speed limit there, so that was our only concern

    The walk on Las Olas Boulevard was amazing. So many restaurants to choose. I only wish I had more time. We loved the ice cream shop.

    The historical society is comprised of a few buildings, although only one is open to the public. It contains a film about the history of the area as well as a few comprehensive exhibits. The staff I encountered were extremely friendly. Recommended for history buffs such as myself.

    Water taxi was very informative and had a great time getting off and eating/drinking.
    My wife and I also went parasailing, with So Flo parasailing. They were great!
    Favorite place to eat while we were there was Coconuts! Fantastic food! Rocco’s Tacos was very good also!

    I went on Thanksgiving. It was amazing, the water was really clear and refreshing, the sand was not got at all. It looked like the IOS 10 default background with the clear water and sand, I will definitely come back.

    A little oasis in the middle of the bustle of the beach crowd and high rises. Besides the paved road, you can wander in some nice nature trails and listen to a commentary on your phone.

    It certainly helped that we were the only ship in port this day, so no traffic and no crowds. The terminal was functional and the staff were nice. We were on board in 30 minutes. And there are some nice Florida views from the ship.

    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.

    Pretty Beach, but parking was horrible. We got a $25 ticket because we didn't see a sign that was hidden by a truck. We even asked the attendant if it was OK to park there and he said sure. Boy, we were so mad when we saw the ticket. I think it was a scam.

    Went to see a Broadway Play in Broward County. Nice theater, stage smaller than Broadway so dancers unable to really move
