The Basics

The Riverwalk area, frequently described as the "Venice of America" by locals and visitors, consists of a park, shops, restaurants, nightlife, and a movie theater, making it a popular destination for strolling, eating, and catching some outdoor entertainment. The complex also includes big attractions such as the Stranahan House, the Broward Center for Performing Arts, the Museum of Discovery and Science, the Florida Grand Opera, and Esplanade Park.

There are several ways to explore the Riverwalk, including walking tours, Segway tours, or sightseeing cruises with operators such as Jungle Queen Riverboat. Those boat rides will cover the Riverwalk, as well as glimpses of Millionaire's Row, a stretch of luxe houses and their attendant mega yachts that runs from Tarpon Bend to the Intracoastal Waterway.

The learning process. I found it difficult trusting the machine but Solomon was an excellent tour guide making sure he kept an eye on me as well the rest of the group. Safety was paramount for him as well, I am encouraging everyone too do this tour.

Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi - All Day Pass
We boarded our taxi at 10:15 and closed the day at 10:00! I’d say we got our money’s worth! Every time we got off, we didn’t have to wait very long for another one to come by. The hosts of every taxi were personable and very informative. It’s a great way to see all of the beautiful homes and yachts in Ft. Lauderdale and a great way to go to restaurants and shopping. Would highly recommend!!!

What an incredible day. We we looking for family time to reconnect with cousins that we haven’t spent time with in almost a decade. Ages 21-56. Captain Charlie made us feel at ease to be ourselves. We had the most spectacular time. We laughed, bonded and created memories that will last forever. We will certainly spend time with him on the Daffy again!
