Visiting the Everglades is an exciting experience on an air boat to see the alligators and wild life. Go on a water taxi to see the super properties and yachts along the waterways. Lunch in the Irish Bar at end of one waterway

I trip up (or down) the intracoastal waterway is a great way to explore South Florida. I've done this a number of times. The protected waterway is a great way to take a new look and some places you may have only seen from the shoreline. I highly recommend it.

An excursion we took one warm afternoon was a water taxi along the Intracoastal waterway in Fort Lauderdale. When we heard of view the stars homes we never expected the lavish estates on the water we were in for viewing. These homes blew my mind in their lavishness. All are beyond beautiful and extravagant. And to think the stars are... More

We traveled by boat north to Ft. Lauderdale to enjoy a late lunch. Even on a Saturday, the traffic was not hectic and boaters were being courteous. Visit around 5 PM on a weekend day and watch the cruise ships depart. But remember: safety first.

The Intracoastal is always a fun place to visit. I like to walk along the various streets that connect with or run alongside the waterway or frequent establishments with outdoor seating alongside the water. Either way, there is good entertainment value in watching the normal boat traffic, the luxury mega-yachts and the local wildlife. In particular, I am fascinated by... More

Ok, so assuming you're visiting friends with a boat, or you're boating here or possibly using some service on the water, you'll probably end up on some section of the intercostal. Not sure it's really an attraction to visit by land! Have traveled from Hollywood to Miami and it is a beautiful section of water. Large homes, small marinas, and... More

We rode the water taxi up and down the canals, high cost mansions to boat docks to down town. It is a facility that is there to be used and covers pretty well all of Fort Lauderdale. It is to be seen to be believed the posh areas of town. WOW did not know there was that much money around.

The waterways intertwine with mansions and high rises. A boat tour will show you a whole different side of Fort Lauderdale. Pretty impressive and makes one wonder where all that obscene wealth comes from.
