Fort Lauderdale Beach#1 in Best Things To Do in Fort Lauderdale
Want a beautiful Florida beach without a crazy party scene? Fort Lauderdale Beach may be just what you're looking for. Here you'll find a calmer and less chaotic version of Miami Beach – but with the same sugary sands and crystal clear water. There are still parties, but you're more likely to find families relaxing or leisurely walking the waterline than raucous groups of college kids. Backing the shoreline, the palm tree-lined promenade bustles with visitors looking to shop and dine in the many establishments along it. There are also beach chair and water sports equipment rentals near the shore.
Recent visitors loved Fort Lauderdale Beach for its wide, expansive shoreline, with some noting that even when there were a lot of people, it didn't feel crowded. Many were also impressed with how clean the beach is, adding that its calm waters make it a great place to bring kids.
There is no charge to enter the beach, but on-site parking will cost you $1.75 per hour. Sun Trolley's Las Olas Link and Beach Link routes also stop by the beach, or you can take the No. 11 or 40 bus to one of the stops along North Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard. Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park and hotels such as the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach and the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort are within walking distance as well. The beach welcomes visitors 24 hours a day. To learn more, check out the City of Fort Lauderdale's website.
