When you are visiting Florida, one of the most exciting places to visit is Las Olas Boulevard at Fort Lauderdale. This wide boulevard has businesses, art galleries, stores, shops, restaurants, antique shops, boutiques and hundreds of other interesting attractions.
Due to its length, two and a half miles, it may take more than one day to enjoy all this area has to offer. In addition to walking or driving, this location can also be reached via water taxi. It is possible to purchase round trip water taxi tickets and, if you save the stubs, some stores will give a discount.
With over 30 dining options, there is a chance to enjoy foods that are not usually available in one's home setting. Café de Paris, The Cheese Factory, Chima Brazilian Steakhouse and Falafel Time (Vegan) are just a few who offer the opportunity to taste different types of food. Some of the restaurants have waterfront patios where you can enjoy watching gulls and other wild life.
Las Olas Boulevard is dog friendly and therefore there are many outdoor tables for dining. This makes it possible to bring your dog instead of leaving him or her in a hotel room.
Big City Tavern, Golden Lyon Vintage Pub are excellent places to stop for a drink. Golden Lyon has outdoor tables where you can watch the people on Las Olas go by.
This area is a shopper's paradise. Everything from chic swim and beachwear to bridal clothes is available. Items specially designed to fit the tastes of children, teenagers and adults are available. There are also bargain-hunting places that offer everything from everyday to vintage clothing at a discounted price.
Antique shops on the boulevard offer a wide range of items from old Florida and other locations. The possibility of finding an antique jewel or a match to an article you already have is something that cannot be missed. Art shops offer an extensive variety of new and old creative prints and original artwork that will add extra chic to your home or office.
