Things to Do in Fort Lauderdale
Even those who come to Fort Lauderdale on business would rather spend their entire stay on the beach, and we can't blame them! But there are a number of other attractions that make this locale a vacationer's paradise. The Plantation Preserve Golf Course & Club, located at 7050 W. Broward Blvd. in Plantation, Fla., is family friendly and hosts a 72-par course. Since it's a public facility, you don't have to worry about obtaining a membership to get in for a round of golf. Those who are looking for something a bit more adventurous may want to explore via the Billie Swamp Safari, which is located on 2,200 acres in the Florida Everglades.
However, if you are content spending most of your stay in Fort Lauderdale near the water, there are many beaches to pick from. Over at Deerfield Beach you will find families building sand castles and a number of open-air restaurants at which to dine. Over at Pompano Beach, guests will find a sports-lover's paradise. At Hollywood Beach, there's a 2.5-mile stretch of sand that features culture with activities such as daily art classes. Here, you will also find a number of unique eateries and spots that are ideal for grabbing a drink at the bar.
