    Anne Kolb Nature Center

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    North of the city lies this natural area, which offers some small hiking and wildlife viewing opportunities. The center itself is free, but for a few bucks, you can also go into the little natural history center where you can see a few exhibits on the wildlife of the area. This is worth a few minutes and the entrance fee. From there, there are a number of short hiking trails (three are under a mile each, and a longer trail as well) that lead to various scenic views. Most of the trails are on the raised boardwalks so you don't trample the plants and fiddler crabs.

    This is a good place to kill a couple of hours. Please see my travelogue for some pictures taken within the park.

    The Boardwalk

    by PinkFloydActuary Written Jul 20, 2006

    If you're staying along the ocean, you should wander over to the Boardwalk. Here, you'll find plenty of dining, shopping, and bar options, all fairly priced. Of course, there is also beach access. Parking is fairly plentiful, but there are meters (about $1 per hour), so be sure to feed the meter so you don't have to walk back and forth to your car - the meter maids are watching! Along the shopping and dining areas is a paved parkway for walking, biking, and running. The boardwalk is a little over 2 miles long, so there is plenty to see and do.

    Alligators in the everglades .....

    Sawgrass Recreation Center is a small tourist stop about 30 minutes west on 75 from Ft Lauderdale. A 20$ ticket gets you an airboat ride, and mini tours of the reptile exhibit, seminole exhibit, and wildlife exhibit.

    Being a small park, the accomodations for the animals were also small, and only just adequate. but the everglades airboat tour was worth the entire ticket price ..... we wandered the everglades, stopped for bird watching, a talk about the local ecosystem, and yes, even for a gator!

    There is an Egret that hangs out by the bait shop hoping for hand outs ...... oh yeah, they offer boat rentals for those who wish to fish for their own ....

    The snack bar serves gator bits which were suprisingly tastey :)

    Part toursit trap, part educational experience ... worth the stop if you have the time :)

    Life's a beach :)

    Go to the beach!!!! This is one of the best beaches I've been to in years ... yea there are people, yes there is sand, wind, etc .... but I'm so used to rocky beaches w/ cliff related access, that just walking off the end of the road, and on to the beach, with soft sand, seashells to find, and warm water ... well it's a treat :)

    even the birds like this beach

    Suncruz Casino Gambling Cruise

    Read my intro for a description. The ship was nice anyway even just to sit and enjoy the ocean. It only costs $10 to board and $5 for a buffet lunch so if you are not a gambler, this is a really inexpensive way to get to sail on the Atlantic Ocean.
