The Basics

The Riverwalk area, frequently described as the "Venice of America" by locals and visitors, consists of a park, shops, restaurants, nightlife, and a movie theater, making it a popular destination for strolling, eating, and catching some outdoor entertainment. The complex also includes big attractions such as the Stranahan House, the Broward Center for Performing Arts, the Museum of Discovery and Science, the Florida Grand Opera, and Esplanade Park.

There are several ways to explore the Riverwalk, including walking tours, Segway tours, or sightseeing cruises with operators such as Jungle Queen Riverboat. Those boat rides will cover the Riverwalk, as well as glimpses of Millionaire's Row, a stretch of luxe houses and their attendant mega yachts that runs from Tarpon Bend to the Intracoastal Waterway.

4-Hour Fort Lauderdale Sailing Charter
Captain Charlie was terrific with our 12 and 15 year old grandsons. He was teaching as we went along &, especially the older one, was thrilled to be able to actually perform activities on the boat. Our younger grandson got quite seasick & Capt. Charlie had strategies for helping him out! I would definitely recommend this trip!
