Not the waterways, but my visit to it, took a boat trip, loved the terrific views, the information offered, but the sad reality that we will have seen only a small portion of this beautiful part of Florida.

I live on the Intracoastal Waterway. I have a small boat and go out almost every day. You never get bored. I have gone from the Keys to Virginia. Always an interesting and entertaining experience. If you don't have a boat, visit one of the many waterside restaurants that offer outside seating and enjoy watching the view pass you by.

The intracoastal waterway is peaceful but full of so many things to do. Went from Isle of Palms to Beaufort SC and never had a bad time.

The Intracoastal Waterway runs parallel to the ocean in South Florida's east coast. When you cross the bridge onto the intracoastal you get a spectacular ocean view. In Fort Lauderdale, you can see the cruise ships and Naval vessels coming and going into the Port Everglades.

The intracoastal is a great way to see into the backyards of America. With bars, restaurants, marina's and mansions, there is a lot to observe. Be prepared to stop a lot for bridges but if you are in a hurry take a plane!

My wife and I loved watching the yachts and other boats pass bye. It is easy to take a water taxi and explore the inter coastal at a lower cost than chartering a boat.
