The Basics

The Riverwalk area, frequently described as the "Venice of America" by locals and visitors, consists of a park, shops, restaurants, nightlife, and a movie theater, making it a popular destination for strolling, eating, and catching some outdoor entertainment. The complex also includes big attractions such as the Stranahan House, the Broward Center for Performing Arts, the Museum of Discovery and Science, the Florida Grand Opera, and Esplanade Park.

There are several ways to explore the Riverwalk, including walking tours, Segway tours, or sightseeing cruises with operators such as Jungle Queen Riverboat. Those boat rides will cover the Riverwalk, as well as glimpses of Millionaire's Row, a stretch of luxe houses and their attendant mega yachts that runs from Tarpon Bend to the Intracoastal Waterway.

Great guide. Fun trip. You see the sights, big boats, nature, and big homes. Would go again next time we come. Park away from and walk to. Parking is a touch expensive.

4-Hour Day or Night-Time Reef Bottom Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale
As a group of 3, with about 25+ other people on board.. the captain along with the 'Mates' were attentive, helpful & informative. The 'Mates' work for tips so feel free to ask any and all questions or if you'd rather be left alone, they won't mind leaving you to catch you fish. You could see some fish in the water and was able to catch multiple different species. 4hrs is plenty of time on the charter. Don't forget your sunscreen and make sure to grab beverages before you leave!
