One of the most amazing areas to cruise up and down. The 17th Street Bridge is and has been a joy to see. If one is fortunate enough to live here year round residents should be very proud.

There are many great fishing spots and parks along the intracoastal. I warn you, though...during peak times, it's a bit difficult to find parking. But be persistent and patient, the wait is well worth it. And if you want to go the beach, it's a short walk across A1A.

Moving here, so wonderful, nice, watching the boats go by and the ocean is nearby. Be aware if driving you may get caught stopped by a bridge.

The most expensive yachts you will ever see. The houses on the coastal way are fabulous. The water taxis are quite frequent and well worth the visit

Love the Views on the Intracoastal. You can see almost everything there. The homes on the Intracoastal are magnificent and worth seeing. The Yachts are fabulous and a treat to experience their beauty and size. Everyone is friendly from the small boaters to be larger ones.

The Intracoastal in Fort Lauderdale is a beautiful waterway. You can take a day cruise that points out the homes of the rich and famous, or just take a water taxi for the views. There are also shops and restaurants along part of it. It's very pretty, and good for photo ops for visitors to south Florida.
