Fort Lauderdale travel tips

1) Try to stay in the central part of Fort Lauderdale after dark

It is fair to name Fort Lauderdale a safe city. The only recommendation for you is to be extra cautious when visiting the city’s west, northwest, and southwest parts. Also, try to adhere to warnings about sea safety regardless of how good you are at swimming.

2) Keep your camera ready on 1 Seminole Way in Davie near Fort Lauderdale in the evening lighting

Go a bit out of Fort Lauderdale in the evening to see Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood on 1 Seminole Way in Davie. The world’s first guitar-shaped hotel strikes with its size, and it is perfectly lit in the evening.

3) See a recreated history with the Jungle Queen in Fort Lauderdale

Appealing to the Jungle Queen in Fort Lauderdale, you will be taken to an authentic 1890s paddle-wheeler ride to the New River. It is a recreated Indian village in the Everglades, with an alligator wrestling show, iguanas, rare birds and native crafts. Definitely a must.
