day plan for pre and pro cruise, suggestions please!

Hi All,

We'd like to go to Bonnet house after our cruise trip disembark on Sunday. Our hotel will be on SE 17th street, can anyone here provide a transportation suggestion how to get to the Bonnet House? I am thinking to take a taxi to the hotel first, then take Sun Trolley after dropping off luggage to the Bonnet? And Sun Trolley have beach route only Weekends, please point it out if i am wrong. Budge wise, is it convenient to take Sun Trolley?

Another thing is I found a very interesting architectural route, it is doable without renting a car?

Also, any suggestion on shopping nearbyby SE 10th or SE17th, as we also have an extra free day pre cruise.

Really appreciate for any inputs.

THanks John for your quick response. I am just wondering how far it is, is it possible to take public transportation from my hotel to there? (such as Sun Strolley), or i need consider taxi?

- From SE 17th street to Bonnet house around 4.5 miles so you need around 10-15 min by car

- From Bonnet house to Sun Trolley around 4 miles so you need around 10 min by car

i think best choice both ways take taxi

i highly recommended for use Sun Trolley service is frequent and was friendly. At only $0.50 per direction or $2.00 for an all day pass it , loop near the beach. Shopping Malls, restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, beaches. a good deal

I would also suggest a taxi. Yes, it is possible to take the Sun Trolley, or even the public bus, BUT, once you get off the bus, you still have a bit of a hike back to the house itself. Unless they have changed the entrance, when I was there two years ago, you could not get in at the gate on N. Birch Road but had to enter via the parking area, not a LONG walk, but a decent one. Bus #40 will take you from 17th to Sunrise, then you would walk in from there. You may want to call them to see if you can enter by foot at the East Gate on N Birch. If that can be done, the bus or trolley option and walking isn't that bad, to me.

You can check that out on GoogleMaps, just type in Bonnet House, Fort Lauderdale, which will show you not only the location, but also the public bus stops.
