It’s only a few weeks to Easter and if you haven’t booked your much needed first break since Christmas, then look at the attractions you can visit in Fort Lauderdale.
Fort Lauderdale is in Florida and is known for its beaches and hundreds of miles of boating canals as well as upmarket shops, bars and restaurants. It’s the perfect place to spend the Easter break and to really get the most from all the tourist attractions, hiring a limousine for all those who travel with you is a great idea. Nobody wants to tackle a city they don’t know in a hire car, try to understand the local public transport system or rely on expensive taxis so the limo service Fort Lauderdale from fl-limousine.com is a great way to have luxury transport with a knowledgeable chauffeur at a great price.
Simply book one which suits the number in your party and then hand over your itinerary of these great destinations and as you climb on board you know you can settle back, relax and see the city feeling like a celebrity.
Fort Lauderdale beach
At the centre of all thing sightseeing in Fort Lauderdale is the wonderful beach. Many years ago it was very popular with students who would spend their holidays there but it’s now a much more quiet and sedate place to go whilst still surrounded by sea-facing restaurants and shops.
Hugh Taylor Birch State Park: 3109 East Sunrise Boulevard
A gift to the people of the city from Hugh Taylor Birch, the State Park has been an oasis of peace and tranquillity in Fort Lauderdale since 1941. The green and scenic former estate stretches an incredible 180 acres with something for everyone.
As well as it being a place to sit and relax to watch the world go by, there are cycle trails, a museum, freshwater lagoons, access to the beach and a number of shops where you can rent a canoe to explore the rivers and canals.
Bonnet House: 900 North Birch Road
Designated a national historic place, Bonnet House is a museum and gardens offering a unique mix of art, history and ecology. Spread over 36 acres, it used to be the winter home of the Taylor Birch family and was built in 1920. There are a number of permanent displays of personal artefacts. The grounds are a stunning oasis of seafront wilderness and informal gardens. It’s the chance to see the authentic home of an important figure of the area as well as the creative lifestyle he led.
Antique Car Museum: 1527 Packard Avenue
As you’re taking a limousine to see the beauty of Fort Lauderdale, the natural addition to any itinerary is the antique car museum which started life as a personal collection of vehicles in the 1940s. The venue focuses on the history of Packard cars and even has memorabilia dedicated to former President of America, Franklin D. Roosevelt. With exhibitions which look at the development of cars of the future, it’s great for all the family and a way to learn about the industry which contributed to the limousine you are enjoying.
