Popular Everglades Attractions in Fort Lauderdale
Daytime Airboat Tours of the Everglades
There is nothing like an airboat tour around the Everglades to get you up close and personal with the wildlife. You just never know what you will see on a tour around the glades. You might see alligators and crocodiles, as both live in the area. You’re likely to see turtles and lizards, as well as a number of different types of fish and birds including colorful roseate spoonbills. You’ll see sawgrass marshes and mangrove forests. There are many plants, mammals, and other wildlife you can’t see anywhere else but the Everglades.
Sunset Airboat Tours
Like a daytime tour, a sunset tour is packed full of sights such as interesting plants, colorful fish, and many reptiles. But additionally, you can watch the sun set over the River of Grass. Nighttime is when the Everglades comes alive with a host of nocturnal wildlife!
A bow fishing tour takes you out on an airboat to fish for tilapia, catfish, bowfin, and several other species using a bow and arrow. A good bow fishing tour provides a license that allows you to fish without your own personal license.
Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum
If you’re a fan of classic cars, this is a great place to visit. It’s a redesign of a 1920s Packard showroom, complete with 22 cars manufactured between the 20s and 40s.
Fort Lauderdale Beach Park
This is one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches. It features basketball courts, volleyball nets, picnic tables, and a playground. You can spend the whole day here with the family – there’s something for everyone to do.
