Fort Lauderdale travel tips

1) Learn the address logic of Fort Lauderdale

When in Fort Lauderdale, do not let local geographical logic mislead you. Remember this rule: “avenues" and "drives" run north-south, and "streets," "boulevards," and "roads" run east-west.

2) Spot one of the biggest outlet malls of the USA in Fort Lauderdale

Located on 12801 W Sunrise boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, Sawgrass Mills is one of the biggest outlet malls in the USA. Hosting more than 100 brand stores, not all of them have outlet prices, however. But locals always praise prices at DKNY, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger and a few more.

3) Get a chance to meet celebrities at Lester's Diner in Fort Lauderdale

Serving visitors since the ‘50s in Fort Lauderdale, Lester's Diner is a great place to try classic American food. Order a huge waffle and their popular 0.5-litre coffee for breakfast.
