    PLACE IS AWESOME! We come every year and love every moment. We love it so much because it is right on A1A and Sebastian Beach. There are also shops, restaurants and bars in walking distance. We also love the Resort because it is a smaller building - only 3 floors- so we like the quiet part. Its not a high rise! it is very personal and Mary Jo is the Best ever! She is so SWEET and very Helpful! The units all have full kitchens and made service everyday. The maids and ground keepers are very nice. It is also pet friendly. OK so it's not the W, but you are on vacation on the beach. You only sleep there. Very nice place and I recommend it to anyone!

    Unique Quality: Just personal and quiet! Walking distance to many things. And it is right on the beach!!!

    Directions: right on A1A and Sebastian Beach!

Yachts Tours

by chevyboats

My mother and I are planning a trip to Fort Lauderdale and I was hoping to spend most of the time on a yacht. Does anybody know of ppl who rent out their yacht when they go on vacation or give overnight yacht tours with diving? Something to this effect?

Re: Yachts Tours

by FloridaSailor

There are innumerable privately-owned yachts in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas. You weren't clear in your post what you consider to be a yacht -- a 30-foot boat (power? sail?) or a 100-footer (power, of course) and whether you want to run the boat yourself or have a crewed charter? Also, you said "spend most of the time on a yacht" you mean during the day, or live on the boat? Big difference.

That said, most people don't rent out their yacht when they're on vacation, for a number of reasons. a) they don't need to, b) insurance clauses prohibit it, etc. There are a number of daysailing boats in the area, but I'm not aware of any that let you live on the boat...a cruise ship would do that, of course.

More information?

Travel Tips for Fort Lauderdale

Running and runners

by JM_runs

You can spot the clueless runners, they are running in the middle of the day. To escape the heat locals run in the early morning or after sun set.

The most popular local place for a run is the beach sidewalk. Even if you don’t run then at least get out and walk or watch. In the morning, even before dawn, there will be runners on the side walk, all shapes and sizes.

There are mile markers but you will miss them. Basically it’s 2.5 miles from the South Parking entrance by the kiosk to the top of the beach. 5 miles round trip.

Remember to drink. I use the showers on the beach, it’s drinking water.

Just south of Las Olas is a road called 'Hall of Fame'. The Swimming complex called 'Swimming Hall of Fame’, the Zoo health club and St Barts Coffee shop make this THE corner for active locals. On Saturdays take and early breakfast at St Barts and watch the show go by. St Barts is athlete friendly, free water cooler by the door. Casual place where you will be warmly greeted, even when hot and dripping after running. They don't mind if you come in with wearing Rollerblades or wearing a thong.

By the south parking lot, there is a new exercise course with stations, bars and such.

For race info check the Greater Fort Lauderdale Road Runners site. All local running races are listed on there. If you can do on of the club races, or River Walk Run all the better. RiverWalk 5 Mile is an interesting down town neighborhood tour.

Thursday Social run from George English Park on Sunrise 6:30, out and back. On sunday endurance in Dearfied, Track Wednesdays etc,,,

RunningWild - A running store with race apps and running info, close to the beach. From the beach go inland on Sunrise Blvd for ½ mile, then turn north on US1 (Federal Highway) and on the west side just past the IHOP.

John U. Lloyd State Recreation...

John U. Lloyd State Recreation Area
This is a really great place to spend the afternoon. Very tranquil......if you can ignore the jets roaring overhead as they depart from the airport. This place is right under the flight path.

Taxi is My Way

by BruceDunning

The taxi's-many of them are all over the airport. They take you to downtown and the Port Everglades for cruise ships. With 3.4 million people jumping ship (on/off that is) in a year, they need hundreds of taxis. Cost is about $10.50 plus tip to Port Everglades, and around the same to downtown. To Miami airport, a taxi may be around $22.
It is not cheaper than shuttles, but gets you there quicker and less hassle. The shuttles can take you to downtown, or Port Everglades, but it takes 4+ people and you may have to wait 30-45 minutes to get connected. If you do not want to wait for the van to fill up with people, costs can be very high, like $30 to Port Everglades, and $50 to Miami airport

T-Bone steak, a real US-Specialty

by doctraveler about Denny's

I just flew in from europe with a pretty bad
cold, so I may not be the most reliable
critic, however this restaurant fullfilled all
my most secret wishes. I ordered a T-Bone
steak (had not eaten one for at least 10 years
and allways wanted to ) and a coffe, which is
a strange combination, but as I had a cold
and had to drink something warm it was
the best to do.
Great experience eating a T-Bone steak
in the US, not every day, not even once a
week, but once a year is not a bad thing to do.
However, be prepared to eat ca. 500g meat.
So don't eat breakfeast or anything else before.
Just meat and meat and meat........
but of perfect quality. The waiters were perfect, alwys looking if I was content, pouring extra coffe, and very kind in their
behaviour, most unlike some colleges in
germany, they ougth to take an example
here. Paid only 12$, but gave a huge tip,
which made the waiters even more friendly,
really felt like a king. The next morning,
the cold was gone, also due to the excellent
meal and treatment in this restaurant. T-BONE Steak

The Grand Princess

The Grand Princess, shown here at its berth at Port Everglade was the ship we took on our 7-day to the Western Carribean. We arrived at Fort Lauderdale a week before our sailing date so that we could visit other cities in Florida.
