Whether you happen to stay at the DoubleTree Hilton or not, you'll want to explore the Bahia Mar Marina. This breathtaking spot exemplifies life on the water; the way true natives in Ft. Lauderdale love to enjoy. You can embark on many sports activities (Which make wicked photo shots!) like diving, jet skiing or sightseeing cruises. Or, you can spend your time taking photographs of the impressive luxury yachts that you kind of wish you could take home as a souvenir.
Did you know that Florida's state bird is the Flamingo? Catch a shot of this bold and beautiful animal at the Flamingo Gardens and Wray Botanical Collection. Though it is further away from the scenic Ft. Lauderdale coast, it’s worth a trip inland to see Florida’s natural beauty. There is everything from a tropical rainforest and wetlands to tranquil butterfly gardens. And don't forget to say hello to the unofficial state animal, the famous alligator.
This may not be your most typical Ft. Lauderdale attraction, but it sure is a sight to see. You’ve seen flea markets ‘round the world, but none like the Ft. Lauderdale Swap Shop. This outdoor flea market almost seems like an entertainment complex. Its sad claim to fame was that its opening night was the day President JFK was killed. It likely bounced back and expanded to more than just a place to call someone else's trash your own treasure. There are rides (including some on the water), galleries and even the largest outdoor drive in so you can make an entire day out of your trip to this flea market extravaganza.
