Las Olas is a nice place to walk around while in Fort Lauderdale. There are several nice restaurants and outdoor cafes. A good place to people watch. There are also some nice shops.

This is a fun place to go and have lunch on the water while enjoying the view. Also, parking is available and easily accessed.

Ft Lauderdale's downtown area, runs along new river. Los Olas is the street that runs from downtown to the Atlantic Ocean. We have the court house, many restaurants, stores, banks, hotels, mansions, condo's.

Probably used to be good. Lots of empty units, even the tourist info place was closed! Wouldn't bother to go again.

Las Olas Riverfront is a great place to visit when in Fort Lauderdale. There are plenty of restaurant and bars along the strip and comfortable places to take a seat and chill. You drool over the multimillion dollar yachts in the waterways. It feels like the Venice of Europe.

The Las Olas Riverfront is best visited between Thanksgiving in November and May when it's the tourist season and everything is buzzing! Great shops along Las Olas and Restaurants, but again after the end of May with many of the US tourists gone it does appear to become a little quieter, although that might be an advantage if you are...

I can walk there from my house and there's nothing happening there anymore, a ghost town, ugh. Its sad, I had a lot of fun there years ago, but I guess nothing stays the same.

Beautiful riverfront in Fort Lauderdale. Lots of great places to eat with cute little boutique shopping stores. Try to view it from a tall building (I viewed from a condo on the riverfront) really, really beautiful. They offer a water taxi from the riverfront as well. A must visit in Fort Lauderdale very upscale.

My wife was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale. She spent a lot of time at the Riverwalk in her teens and 20's. It was the place to be. In 2009 we moved to Fort Lauderdale. We went to Riverwalk to see a movie. NEVER AGAIN. Since then nothing, absolutely nothing has changed and the Fort Lauderdale City Planners should... More

Guided by a tourist map in our hotel on Fort Lauderdale Beach we had a cab leave us at what was billed as a shopping mall by the Riverside in Las Olas. This turned out to be a virtual ghost mall, all but deserted of outlets. Although only 10.30 in the morning it was a bit spooky and my wife... More
