Stop by the Gelato shop for a cool tasty treat while strolling in between the beautiful people.
By the way the # 11 City Bus takes you all the way to the beach on las Olas if you need a cheap and easy way to get there. Can also ride it back towards downtown on las Olas. I rode it several times, plus it’s free till June 1st!

Fun area to walk around, especially if you're in the mood for a sidewalk cafe or bakery. We didn't see much we'd actually buy on the street, except for the restaurant food. Ate at Louie Bossie's italian restaurant and had awesome pizza. The are is good for an hour or two diversion if you're in Ft. Lauderdale. There are public parking lots behind some of the buildings, $3 the first hour, and $1.50 for subsequent hours. You have to use the pay machine to print a ticket to put on your dashboard. Take a picture of your license plate before you go to the machine, because you'll have to enter it into the pay lot machine.

Our association selected the Riverside Hotel right on Las Olas because of all the activities that were available for attendees and spouses to do when not in meetings. The dining options speak for themselves as there are restaurants of every variety available for any palate. The shopping leaves a little more to be desired as the prices are outlandish in a lot of the places. There are some unique options, such as some art places and a really unique sculpture joint. But overall, even the bare necessities are expensive.

I would avoid this busy street on the weekends if you are concerned about Covid. Yesterday mid-afternoon the restaurants were hopping, and I was surprised to see that the outdoor tables in virtually all the six blocks I strolled were packed together as usual with no evidence of social distancing. In some cafes, 8 or so people were packed into outdoor booths that were jammed next to each other. I felt sorry for the servers and other restaurant employees who were all properly masked. The viral load looked enormous even outdoors. Perhaps off this busy boulevard restaurants are providing space between tables.

Stayed in an AirB&B 3/4 of a mile from here and frequented most nights. Almost all restaurants had a happy hour from 4-7. Recommend: YOLO for happy hour and light dinner, Red Door for great green curry and a buffet brunch on weekends $35pp. ( we did not get to try but it looked terrific and included shrimp, crab legs and mimosas!), Café Europa had delicious GF pizza, Boathouse for HH and delicious swordfish risotto, El Camino for HH and fabulous, well-priced dinners, Wild Oyster for HH oysters and cocktails. Did not get to go but Rocco’s Tacos has HH drinks and food starting at 3:00.

Be careful of the store “Celebrity Fashion” on 1034 E Las Olas.
I bought an outfit.

The labels were removed (I didn’t notice but at home on careful look, there were holes where the labels were) and a few stores down the same items are half the price.

The store has a no return policy.

Visited Las Olas shopping district just to walk and window shop and was not disappointed. There was quite a bit of construction and the outside areas were crowded (great for business). Very pretty place and right next to the riverwalk. Things to consider: uber/lyft drivers seem to only pick up on the eastbound side of the road, at least in our experience. So if you take Uber/Lyft make sure your meeting area is very clear as one driver cancelled the trip and the other made us cross the busy blvd. where there was not a light or crosswalk present. Evidently they refuse to make U-turns as well.

I have a better understanding why FL has a huge COVID 19 problem.

Las Olas Blvd contains a lot of restaurant and shopping stores that cater to tourist. It was obvious several (if not all) restaurants DID NOT practice COVID 19 restrictions as many, many, many restaurants were fully booked. It was also obvious several (if not all) did not limit occupancy rates to help minimize the spread. Las Olas is definitely a super spreader location...once we observed this, we left immediately and didn't return.

Lots of restaurants and shops to explore. There’s got to be something for everyone. It’s set up very cute with all the lights on the palm trees once it gets dark. It reminded me of fourth Street in Naples. We enjoyed walking up and down the street, and we felt safe. Make sure you pay to park at the meters because they do have meter readers walking up and down the street checking license plates.

Los Olas is what it is. On the beach with many visitors eating. Being in the Pandemic it was still very busy during the week. All wait staff and workers were wearing masks as required. Nice area to visit unless you are an extreme mask advocate.
