If you have limited time in Fort Lauderdale or simply want to see more of the city from the water, take a boat cruise on the New River for great views of places that are otherwise difficult to access. Get close views of downtown, along with mega yachts and waterside mansions along Millionaire's Row as you travel through the canals and hear live commentary from the guide.

erwalkVery engaging neighborhood. Enjoyed railroad bridge across the street, well done Museum exhibits and New River riverwalk. Wonderful deep dive into origin of Fort Lauderdale. We stayed the day exploring and observing the flow of boats on the river. Water taxi and Stranahan House are a wonderful 15 minutes away on the riveralk.

My wife and I enjoyed the visit to the Ft Lauderdale History Museum. It was great to see the picture of Eula Johnson, who integrated our beaches in the 1960s. The tour guide, Daniel Smith, did an excellent job showing us around the King House from about 1911 and then the old schoolhouse. He was well informed and told good anecdotes. The key is for those who love history, this is fascinating!
