Fort Lauderdale Sightseeings

A day at Fort Lauderdale is a day at the beach. And there is nothing wrong with that, because the beaches here are truly luxurious. Previously, students from all over America constantly came here for the so-called "spring break". Now the focus has shifted more to tourists from all over the world. Nevertheless, every new traveler still goes to the beach at first. Although there are other interesting places. About them further.

NSU Art Museum

If you will pass by a building called NSU Art Museum, be sure to stop and look inside. This art museum contains one of the most extensive collections of paintings by the American surrealist William Glackens, as well as 6,000 works by artists from around the world, including avant-garde artists from the Second World War. Even the modernist building itself is already interesting to study, but the collection is definitely worth several hours of study.

Speed airboat

In the vicinity of Fort Lauderdale is a series of Everglades swamps. So that they did not stand idle in vain, the locals came up with crazy entertainment: riding a high-speed airboat. If you can open your eyes from fear during the trip, you will see the expanses of the national park with its lush ecosystem, an abundance of wild birds, alligators and, if you're lucky, you will even notice local panthers.

Fort Lauderdale Beach

Since you arrived, be sure to plunge into the warm waters of the Atlantic coast. Here you can just feel like a "Malibu savior", so the surroundings look like a series.

Fort Lauderdale is home to the Butterfly World. This is a giant botanical garden with a butterfly farm and a real research center. Here lives as many as 20 thousand butterflies of fifty species. To miss such an entertainment is simply impossible. And here there are large aviaries with a variety of birds.

Fort Lauderdale Naval Museum

If you think the Naval Museum is boring, you just haven't been to the Fort Lauderdale Museum. It contains a variety of aircraft models, ancient ships and artifacts of the Second World War. In addition, you can examine in detail the form and accessories. And here is the memorial to the infamous Flight 19, which flew from the base in 1945 and disappeared forever in the Bermuda Triangle.

What to eat in Fort Lauderdale

Perhaps Florida cannot boast of some authentic dishes. Still, it is a tourist destination that is trying to please everyone. But Fort Lauderdale can surprise you with unusual tastes.

In Fort Lauderdale, you can find literally everything: from Italian cuisine to Argentinean, from Indian to Vietnamese. Moreover, all this food will taste almost indistinguishable from what you can try in the country where it was invented.

But bypassing American restaurants is not worth it. They make great burgers and American pies with anything inside, which is just what the cook’s imagination lacks. And including Fort Lauderdale, you can find seafood everywhere, including oysters and lobsters. And you can drink all this with local craft beer, which is brewed here in dozens of small breweries.
