Getting Around Town

Fort Lauderdale Shuttle

Fort Lauderdale Shuttle

Your best bet is to drive to Fort Lauderdale. Situated off Interstate 95, there are several different exits you can take into the city. Ft. Lauderdale is a fairly easy place in which to drive. East-west I-595 runs from westernmost Broward County and links I-75 with I-95 and U.S. 1 (the Coast Highway).

The city also has an excellent commuter bus system. If you are staying near the beach, renting a bicycle may be more your speed. City buses feature bicycle racks, so you can canvas the entire area, without a vehicle.

Of course, if you just want to relax, spend time on the water, and take in some of the best waterway views in the world, hail a Water Taxi, which provides service along the Intracoastal Waterway. These taxi boats stop at more than 30 restaurants, hotels, shops, and nightclubs; the fare is $7 one-way, $12 round-trip, and $15 for an all-day pass.

When it comes to the big yellow taxi, keep in mind this isn’t New York or Chicago. You may be able to catch one at a major hotel, otherwise call ahead.

The Fort Lauderdale / Miami / Palm Beach Tri-Rail is also a good travel option. It features clean,quiet rides and convenient stops near all the major area attractions, including, museums, airports, malls, and other locations.

Fort Lauderdale Day Trip

Enjoy a day in Hollywood. Don’t forget to stroll along the scenic Broadwalk or walk through the aviary at Flamingo Gardens, in Davie, before relaxing in your own peaceful hotel or resort accommodation. South Beach, Bay Side, and Art Deco District of Miami, are only a 45-minute drive. Head over to Coral Gables to take in the eye-popping display of the 1920s. Also keep in mind that, time permitting, you can continue your drive south all the way to Key West (about 4 hours) and indulge in some margaritas, snorkeling, parasailing, and an even more relaxed “island atmosphere”.
