“Where the action is”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Bars, restaurants, bars, street music, restaurants, bars -- it is a happening place at night and great stores during the day.

“Nice walk and shops”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

There are a lot of little clothing boutiques and restaurants. Even if you weren't planning to shop but a nice walk and window shop.

“Nothing special.....”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Sorry to say, but Las Olas Boulevard is a little over-hyped per the experiences it has to offer. Yes, it is trendy (kind of), but it is no different than any other exclusive shopping area that other cities boast. There are art galleries and if this is your thing, then it might be more appealing, but if you are looking to shop, you likely will be disappointed.

Stores are expensive and this includes the Yogurt place which charged me $21 for two containers of yogurt (yes, you might be wondering if I even have an eligible IQ after agreeing to pay for the yogurt....). Restaurants are busy and are all designed to promote people watching on the street which can be fun at times.

The up side is that there are lots of places to sit and watch the world go by and that the Water Taxi is close by. If you have the time and the inclination, then give it a try, but if there is something else that you want to experience more, give it a pass.

“overrated”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Thought it would be a good place to spend an afternoon... Had a decent selection of places to eat. Other than that it was just stuffy upscale stores. Walked the whole area in very short time. It that's what your looking for great, if not - don't waste your time.

“Good selection of shops & restaurants”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We walked from the Westin hotel on the sea front, not realising how far the Boulevard was! It was worth the visit though as we passed some lovely houses. We mooched around the shops & had a light lunch in one of the many restaurants. Worth the walk. We caught the trolley bus back.
