Getting Around in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Fort Lauderdale is definitely a driving-friendly city, with three major highways and the colorfully-named Rainbow Interchange, but there are still other options to get around if you don’t have a personal vehicle, and even more planned in the future. The Wave, which is an electric streetcar system, is being slated for development, and the local bus system provided by Broward County Transit (BCT) is still a great way to get around in a pinch.

Fort Lauderdale Reborn

<p>Some people say that Miami is the party capital of the state, but they might be missing an opportunity to take a closer look at her sister city, Fort Lauderdale, before sizing up who most likes to go out and get a little crazy. With the city hosting over 4,000 restaurants and 120 nightclubs, there's never a lack of places to eat and beats to dance to. The downtown area, which just underwent re-development is also starting to see some much needed life, and the boardwalk is always a nice place to sit back and unwind after a long night out.</p>

The Riverwalk District

<p>Looking for art and entertainment? The Riverwalk District has got you covered. Running east and west along Las Olas Boulecard, all the way from the center of downtown to the sandy beaches, this street is lined with gourmet restaurants, kitschy art shops, seedy but awesome dive bars, and night clubs with the bass blaring out the doors. There's a reason so many people come to this city to unwind and have a good time on Spring Break.</p>

The Local Landscape

<p>Think you've seen it all and tired of city life? Well just hop in a car and before you know it you'll be in the serene nothingness of coastal bliss. Ride south along the 1 and soak up the sun filled vistas, or cruise inland and take a tour of the wetlands and natural everglades. It's a beautiful part of the country, filled with nature and beauty.</p>
