The Riverwalk on the New River looked like a good idea, but is very sparsely populated, as we wandered the walkways past scores of closed businesses. We ate at what looked like the only open restaurant.

We enjoy meeting friends to take in the artists and musicians each first Sunday of the month. We set up a tent and bring the dog, too. Great afternoon outing.

Slowly but (hopefully) surely this area will start to thrive again. The jazz festivals one Sunday a month are quite wonderful with people staking out their territory with blankets chairs and tents early in the day. Music is ALWAYS great with at least two venues to listen to. Food available by local restaurants and wine/beer offered too. Don't recall if spirits available. A new restaurant opened, Brineys Pub is going on. Not at level before economy wasted the area but still worth it

People come to Ft Lauderdale for the Beach and the cruises. But while you are here don't miss a ride on the New River. A pleasent afternoon or evening and a different view of the area. Beautiful homes, amazing boats and the ability to just relax.
Take the tours or the water taxi
