If you have limited time in Fort Lauderdale or simply want to see more of the city from the water, take a boat cruise on the New River for great views of places that are otherwise difficult to access. Get close views of downtown, along with mega yachts and waterside mansions along Millionaire's Row as you travel through the canals and hear live commentary from the guide.

The International Swimming Hall of Fame is undergoing a major renovation to the competition pools and according to the staff the museum as well. Hopefully the new improvements to the museum will include updated graphics, displays and better organized information. The current displays are copy-intense and even I who follow swimming and am an avid reader got bored. The 2019 Hall of fame inductees were not yet on display and current Olympian were sporadically represented. I so wanted to like this museum but was very disappointed.

If you really, really enjoy competitive swimming and want to see the trophies and the old swimming suits used by the likes of Esther Williams and Johnny Weissmuller- go ahead and knock yourself out. But to the rest of the world it’s just... old pics, old swimsuits and a bunch of trophies. Sorry I probably am an ignorant of the wide and wise swimming world but I only give my honest opinion....

Stopped here to get a gift for a friend who is a competitive swimmer. The pools are under costruction but it looks to be beautiful upon completion. We didn't even have time to see the museum as our daughter was competing in volleyball at the convention center but if meeting Marlene at the gift shop was any sign of how things get run we will be back. Marlene is a breath of fresh air and made me feel like I belonged at the museum. She was friendly and a wealth of knowledge . My daughter and I wanted to go back if anything just to spend time with her. The hall of fame is lucky to have her as their first face.

My daughter was very excited to swim at the Olympic pools of the international swimming hall if fame. The public parking lots nearby were full and we had to circle the area a few times around construction to find a spot for $10 for 3 hrs. As the website indicated, construction started and the pools are not open during the work as they are being redone. If you are coming to swim or see the pools - skip the trip. The store and museum are open. The museum has great content and memorabilia but is not current. There are no interactive exhibits and may not be inviting. I learned a thing or two and can’t wait to come back when the hall of game is redone. The store is a heaven for swimmers and prices are reasonable.
