Located on the southeastern coast of Florida, Fort Lauderdale is famous for its sandy beaches, scenic canals, arts, culture, and more. If you’re planning a trip to the Sunshine State, then there are plenty of fun and amazing things to do in Fort Lauderdale. 
Fort Lauderdale Beach

Here are our top 10:

  1. Fort Lauderdale Beach and Park

    With 24 miles of pristine, golden beaches, Fort Lauderdale is the perfect spot to come and enjoy the sun and sea. The park, located at 1100 Seabreeze Boulevard, offers everything you need to get the most out of your day at the beach: volleyball and basketball courts, restrooms, grills, showers, a playground, and a boat ramp. The beach is open every day from 5 AM to midnight, and can easily be accessed by car or public transportation.
  2. Las Olas Boulevard

    One of the things to do in Fort Lauderdale that visitors love best is taking a stroll along the strip from the beach at A1A into the heart of the city. Lined with gorgeous palm trees and beautiful people, Las Olas Boulevard showcases the best that Fort Lauderdale has to offer with its stunning views of multi-million-dollar homes and jaw-dropping yachts. Of course, you don’t have to spend your whole day gawking. There are plenty of fashion boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, cafes, and bars to duck into along the boulevard.
  3. Everglades Airboat Tour

    Adventure is only a short ride away! Fort Lauderdale is home to several outfits that will put you on an airboat and send you into the Everglades with an experienced captain and guide. As you tour this amazing ecosystem, you’ll be treated to the wild beauty of Florida’s vast wetlands and the hundreds of animal species that call them home.
  4. Broward Center for the Performing Arts

    For more than 30 years, the Broward Center has brought quality entertainment to Fort Lauderdale. Its theatrical offerings cover a range of performances for all ages—from Baby Shark Live to Les Miserables. Located just west of the Riverwalk, a show at the Broward Center would make the perfect centerpiece for a night out in Fort Lauderdale.
  5. Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District

    Speaking of the Riverwalk, this vibrant commercial district located along New River offers a variety of high-quality dining, shopping, and entertainment options. In addition to the Broward Center, you’ll find other notable attractions such as the Florida Grand Opera, Fort Lauderdale History Center, Stranahan House, and the NSU Art Museum.
  6. Hugh Taylor Birch State Park

    Named after a prominent Chicago attorney, investor, and naturalist who deeded 180 acres of his own private paradise to Florida in 1941, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park has a little something for everyone: kayaking in coastal dune lakes, biking on the 2-mile paved drive, hiking on the Coastal Hammock Trail, fishing, birding, and more. Make sure this outdoor wonderland makes it on to your list of things to do in Fort Lauderdale!
  7. Bonnet House Museum & Gardens

    Birch also gave 35 acres of land to his daughter, Helen, and her husband, Frederic Clay Bartlett. The stunning home that Bartlett created for his wife has become an enduring monument to learning, creativity, history, and preservation—all passions that the couple shared along with the Birch family. A national treasure, Bonnet House is one of the few complete homes and studios with original furnishings that’s still open to the public.
  8. Flamingo Gardens

    A nonprofit dedicated to preserving and protecting South Florida’s endangered wildlife, Flamingo Gardens hosts an impressive array of animals on site: sea otters, panthers, a black bear named Josh, 250 species of birds, and, of course, a colony of beautiful Caribbean flamingos  The park includes a free 25-minute tram ride, during which visitors are treated to a narrated tour through its breathtaking scenery and wildlife.
  9. Boat Tour Through Millionaire’s Row

    One of everyone’s favorite things to do in Fort Lauderdale is to take a boat tour along the long stretch of palatial estates that line the Intercoastal Waterway and New River. Gawk (respectfully, of course) at the posh and obscenely-expensive homes that either currently or once belonged to billionaires like Wayne Huizenga, movie stars like Nick Nolte, recording artists like Cher, and even gangsters like Al Capone.
  10. The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale

Last but not least, what’s a trip to Fort Lauderdale without a visit to the Galleria. The upscale shopping experience boasts of over 100 fashion retailers, spas, and restaurants. Conveniently located at the heart of Fort Lauderdale, the Galleria is only a few minutes away from beaches, hotels, the airport, the convention center, and Port Everglades.
