You’ll find lots of places to sit, ride a bicycle, tour the historic Ft Lauderdale museum, or even make a reservation for a party or event at their historic restaurant. Look for the giant wooden lounge chair, the railroad trustle bridge, or the motorboats cruising...More

My wife and I took a 2 mile morning stroll along the Riverwalk enjoying views of the river, the yachts and the beautiful buildings. Don't miss the original Ft Lauderdale towncenter.

Nice walk threw parts of historic Fort Lauderdale with high rises and boats all along the path mixed in with shops and restaurants. Part of the walk is under construction.

Whether there is one of the many festivals going on or just taking a walk, the Riverwalk is absolutely beautiful. I have the good fortune of living nearby and I never tire of the area.

Nice beach area. Lots of shops and dining places. great food and entertainment. Liked the Margaritaville hotel and surf area out by the beach. Anyone could try to surf and it was safe. Good location.

We were there in the morning and it was sunny, but there are plenty of places to sit and rest a while. You can rent a private boat and spend the day on the canal.

The walk is well paved and a great place to appreciate the river and the city skyline. It needs a few more shady trees in places but there are lots of places to sit and enjoy your surrounds.

I like to park behind the police station south of River Walk. I think it's like $1.25 an hour or so. Great place to sit by 3rd avenue bridge too

Not sure; There are bricks on the walkway everywhere with names on them. A great walk right to the end. Bring your camera and sit in the massive Adirondack Chair and have your picture taken. It's hilarious.
