Beautiful Blvd. to stroll, shop, wine and dine. There's something for everyone on Las Olas. Nearly all the patio dining spots are dog friendly (a couple are not). Great street festivals (food & wine, art etc..), little skating rink at Christmas and a regular organic farmers market on the weekends down by the pharmacy.

We visited Las Olas as dusk fell and it is a long street full of shops, bars and restaurants. When we emerged from our restaurant night had fallen and the street looked so pretty, every shop has an American flag outside and every tree is lit with fairy lights. There are photo opportunitys as you walk along the street but... More

There are plenty of shops, art galleries, restaurants, bars and more in a small several block area. There really isn't a need to go anywhere else! They also feature several public bike rental stations and it's a short 2 mile walk or ride to Ft Lauderdale Beach.

Many restaurants and art galleries & showrooms, nice walk. Great gelato too. I recommend Rocco's taco's although you may have to wait as it is hugely popular, the guacamole is a must, music is somewhat loud but you can still talk. Asia Bay is great for sushis, get an outdoor table on the water way and you'll see fish. For... More

Spent a couple of hours wandering through shops with a friend. Stopped for lunch at Caffe Europa, great choice! Lots of other choices for lunch, wish I'd had many more days to try them all. Eclectic shopping area from clothes to art to cigars.

There isn't enough room to praise this area! There are tons of restaurants with outdoor seating, bars, art galleries, craft showrooms, clothing stores and git shops here. The area is usually crowded with happy tourists. I was here with a large family group and we enjoyed ourselves sitting outdoors sitting right in the middle of everything.

Just a busy and very expensive street with restaurants and shops. Just for parking alone a 10 dlr. fee. Not as amusing as we thought. Not worth the trip to Frt. Lauderdale
