In this sub-tropical paradise, you’ll be able to choose the ideal match for your taste and wallet. If yours happens to be a Versace wallet, you might lean toward a waterfront villa, where you and your guests can gather on broad verandahs to sip wine and watch the passing parade of luxury yachts. If beachfront fun appeals, condos and beach homes offer an appealing range of sizes and amenities. Whatever your decision, you’ll be glad you chose vacation rental advantages – unique dwellings, privacy, space and gorgeous views.
From the beach boogie Spring Vacations of the 60’s to today’s “Venice of America”, Fort Lauderdale has been a magnet for those who seek the action and serenity of a vibrant seaside city. Choose inland waterway cruises to discover magnificent waterfront estates, sure evidence that the rich and famous have long appreciated the appeal of the city. Riverwalk Entertainment Complex vies with Las Olas Boulevard to capture every appetite and interest. A bottle of wine at a boulevard café? Upscale art galleries? Shopping and pastries and trendy bars? You will find it all in this thriving area between the waterway and ocean. Lauderdale’s convenient water taxi will whisk you from one spot to another.
A wavy beach wall sets the beach apart from the shops and clubs along busy A1A highway, so you step into an oasis of silky white sand to look over mile after mile of Atlantic Ocean. It is indeed a beach lover’s paradise for a lazy day under palms or action-packed catamaran sailing, Jet Ski adventure, quiet kayaking or building sandcastles with the kids. A walking/bike path runs the length of the beach, so you can wander along and choose your favorite spot.
Fresh from the sea fish tops many a menu in waterfront dining establishments, and quaint bistros, ethnic cafes and intimate bars provide a seemingly endless round of choices for the many tastes of Fort Lauderdale. Shopping too is as diverse and unique with splendid galleries, kicky little specialty stores and fabulous fashion boutiques. One very unique place is Mission Gifts, South Florida’s only Fair Trade retailer, where one-of-a-kind crafts and gifts come from around the world. There’s no sales tax at this non-profit shop that promotes a better life for third-world artisans.
Beach rentals are the perfect match for group holidays. Spacious living areas, plenty of sleeping quarters, fully-equipped kitchens and outdoor patios and pool provide a restful retreat following your days and nights of entertainment, shopping and dining.
