Whether it’s whiling away the days in a beach chair or hitting up all the hottest Florida attractions, you’ll want to check out our list of where to go and what to do when you escape to Fort Lauderdale this summer.

FORT LAUDERDALE BEACH

Fort Lauderdale is home to one of the best and cleanest beaches in the US. Boasting 7-miles of sun-kissed coastline and a wide, palm-tree dotted promenade, this lovely coastal town is a hub of mild-to-wild activities. Shops, restaurants, and sidewalk cafes line the pedestrian-friendly walkway, and the beach is a haven for volley ball players, families, picnickers, and sun bathers.

FUNKY BUDDHA BREWERY

For craft beer enthusiasts, one of the best places to visit in Florida is the Funky Buddha Brewery near Fort Lauderdale beach. The award-winning brewery features a tap room and restaurant, making this the perfect place to cool off after a long day at the beach.

The brewery offers tours on weekends and the tap room is open until midnight, including Sundays.

Hop aboard an intra-coastal water taxi or rent a paddle board and see everything from mangroves to waterfront mansions.

Las Olas features two and a half miles of dining, shopping, and entertainment attractions. Stroll down the breezeway and peruse a wide array of boutiques, galleries, and jewelry stores.
