We had been visiting the Fort Lauderdale area for a number of years when our kids were smaller and we remember how lively and entertaining Las Olas Riverfront was some 10 years ago. Full of restaurants, shops and galleries. It's a complete ghost town now....More

Went there to check out how it has declined. The only shops there were a Segway rental shop, a pizza joint that wasn't open at 2:30 PM when I was there, an art gallery that was closed, and a tour boat that takes you around...More
