“There are many beautiful yachts on this river”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The New River originates in the Everglades and flows east. The mouth of the New River is located north of Port Everglades and south of Las Olas Boulevard in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The river is a big part of Fort Lauderdale with many restaurants and shops along the river. There are many beautiful yachts on this river.

“Stroll along the river”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This small river passes through downtown Fort Lauderdale and played an important part in the development of the city. It can be visited by boat or by walking along the path at the side. Both allow you an opportunity to see some great real estate, visit the historical village or just while away an hour or so watching the world go by. There were some beggars but they kept to themselves. On the first Sunday of the month enjoy free jazz concerts as you stroll along.

“relax and enjoy”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

lovely downtown Lauderdale area you don't want to miss...whether strolling along the river and boat watching as people cruise up and down, or stopping at one of the many restaurants and bars, makes a lovely afternoon

“Still the best beach”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Where the Boys are movie at the Elbow Room is long past but the spirit of a great beach continues. Nthe City of Fort Lauderdale has done an exceptional job in preserving this pristine beach area. Parking is immediately available.

“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.
