Las Olas, Fort Lauderdale
When in Fort Lauderdale, you don't want to miss visiting "Las Olas," a picturesque part of the city that sports superb restaurants, boutiques, and galleries.
Fondest memory: Whenever I am away from home, I long for the graceful palm trees swaying in a gentle breeze, the subtle kiss of salt that you can feel around you, the jeweled water and the brightest azure skies the world over!
Stroll down Las Olas Blvd. any night and listen to jazz, take a boat ride on the Intracoastal waterway, shop at the Galleria, drink Irish beer at McGuire-Hill's Irish Pub, drive down A-1-A and drink in the atmosphere. Try some out-of-the way dining experiences like Southport Raw Bar-great oysters on the half shell and other sea food. You can dock your boat up at many restaurants. No need to dress up at most places.
Fondest memory: I miss the sound of the waves and the blueness of the skies.
I miss the great restaurants-almost too numerous to mention.
One I love is Burt and Jack's. It's right in Port Everglades and you can watch the cruise ships while you eat.
Also any place on Las Olas. That's where the 'beautiful' people hang out. Fun to just people watch.
