Great place for a boat ride. It was nice seeing all the houses and buildings. The Jungle Queen is a good way to see the Intracoastal waterway in Fort Lauderdale.

A change from the hustle of the beach area. Shops, Restaurants, and a Revival of the Shopping area. The historic homes from the City's beginnings are all located the the west end in Himmershee village.

This was an extension of our day on the Water Taxi and it was worth every second of the trip. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
