“Nice river to walk along once.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The new river doesn't have particularly good access. Not very clean. Nice to take a cruise on it and see the homes. The walk along it is mostly unexciting and often you have to contend with homeless beggars.

“Great ride to Downtownern from Shooters”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Nice ride by water taxi from one great restaurant and bar to another. Greg and Chris at Shooters are the best and Dave and Lisa at shooters equal their drink pouring skills

“Fun Tours Available”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

There are several good choices for tours of the New River area with Riverfront Cruises being one of our favorites and I guess the Carrie B being our second choice.

“The walk is not to be missed”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

If you visit Fort Lauderdale, the Venice of America, you need to walk the New River. There are two sides but the North side has the longer expanse. It starts at Las Olas and ends at sailboat bend. It's great to see some of the world biggest Yachts being pulled up River in such a narrow strip of waterway (compared to the Ocean) to the boat yards upriver for repairs and haul out. It's peaceful and enteraining. Worth a Sunday stroll with the family. Watch out for the bikers. If they had it there way there would be no pedestrians! I hate that. There should be a separate bike path but regardless it's worth seeing before you leave FLL. There are cool condo's on the path too, worth buying one and then you wouldn't have to leave. You would be home!
