Always lots of activity on the intracoastal. A remarkably interesting waterway that stretches a long long way. It is a very good drive pretty much anywhere you go. Pick a bridge and cross over then drive. You will see a lot of interesting places including beaches where you can stop.

Fancy houses, check. Fancy and large yachts, check. Wealth I will never have? CHECK! It sure is nice to daydream if I ever figure out how to pick 6 magical numbers. Lol. But it is still amazing to take in.

Ft Lauderdale has both a yachting collection and the finiest Mega mansion collections you will see anywhere. Yachts from all over the world collect. For visitors, the first adventure should be the Water Taxi ride. You... More

Need a way to get around in Fort Lauderdale? Hop on a water taxi and wander through the Intercoastal Waterway with excellent views of area homes, yachts, and merchants.

We rented a boat and toured the area. Fun to look at the million dollar homes and boats. You can also get a water taxi if you don't want to drive yourself.

I attended a wedding on a yacht on the Intercoastal last week. What a beautiful waterway. The sunset views are absolutely gorgeous. You can peek through the row of buildings to see the ocean on one side, and tall hotels and amazing homes on the other. If you can attend a cruise or rent a boat on the Intercoastal, I... More
