It’s all here: great beaches, sunny warm weather, shopping and dining, and easy access to other romantic spots in South Florida.

Romantic Things to Do in Fort Lauderdale

Las Olas Boulevard, Fort LauderdaleLas Olas Blvd in Downtown Fort Lauderdale
  • Las Olas Boulevard – Go for a stroll down this trendy avenue of shops, galleries and restaurants. We love Pan'e Dolci Italian Bakery for their Cappuccino and almond cookies...
  • Water Taxi - Great for exploring Fort Lauderdale's canals and waterways, sightseeing (see the cruise ships!), or hopping off to shop or dine at one of the 14 stops. www.watertaxi.com
  • Fort Lauderdale Beach – we always enjoy visiting Fort Lauderdale beach whenever we are in South Florida. After fun in the sun & sand, go for a walk on the promenade where there’s numerous lunchtime eateries and beachfront bars great for enjoying a drink and even some live music.
