    If you are in Fort Lauderdale you don't need a car.

    If it's NOT mid summer, then get a bicycle and a big lock. It's the best way to get about, every thing is close. Some people just walk and bus but a bike is quick and fun. Some hotels lend or rent.

    Water Bus, a must ride! Runs from beach to Las Olas and down town. Get a day $5, three day, $10 or a week pass $20. Runs day and night, 9am to 12:30am next morning, so you can use it for partying and then get home.

    City Cruiser shttle runs between the beach and Down Town, and its FREE !! funny times, check schedules. Last bus about 1AM

    Normal Bus: Bus termiinal is only two blocks from RiverSide and Himershee village entertanement complexes. The number 11 runs from there, down Las Olas and up the beach (Weekdays every 30 min till 11pm). The #40 takes you to the supermarket and mall. #22 (from Terminal) Broward & Sawgrass malls.

    There is even special busses going from the beach to the swap shop.

    Taxi: Most things are close so fares should be low. But check distance before setting out. (Sawgrass mills shopping is MILES out west)

    Bikes: It's probably cheeper to purchase a 99$ one at wallmart and sell it on your last day then to rent by the hour. Bring lock and cable from home!

    Bus >>

    Fort Lauderdale Airport, Bus #1(from terminal) takes you right to your gate.

    Miami AIrport: City Cruiser (from bus terminal) connects to Tri-rail and then to Miami Airport >> ttp://

    Taxis are expensive in Florida, soon as you get in the taxi it cost you $1.25 and it works out at around $2 to $3 a mile,and as some of the places that you want to visit could be at least 5 to 6 miles away it leaves a hole in your pocket. There are also limo's that you can hire but they are twice as much and more.

    Draw Bridges

    by shohman Written Mar 24, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are near the beach or Canals, prepare to wait for draw bridges to be raised and lowered. They are pretty efficient here, and it is usually only about a 5 minute wait.
