Processed with VSCO with c3 presetFort Lauderdale in my opinion is the perfect place to go if you need some sunshine and beautiful white sandy beaches!  If you are planning the perfect vacation day soaking up the sun, playing in the sand, or catching some waves, then Fort Lauderdale beach is the spot to go!
Not only does Fort Lauderdale have wonderful beaches, but I also enjoyed walking the strip and doing some shopping in their local beach stores and boutiques! I also highly recommend sitting outside at the sushi restaurant ” Sushi Rock Cafe“! It was some of the best sushi I have ever had!  They also served a variety of boba teas!  I always go for the Green Tea or Thai tea ! Yum!  I loved sitting on their balcony go and watching people go by on the strip!

One of my favorite activities was renting a bike (which you can find anywhere for a very affordable price) and biking along Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood Beach!  I was determined to bike to Miami, but then realized it was going to take me a very long time, and I gave up about 30 min into it! Be aware that there is usually construction to get around as well, which makes it difficult.  I rented my bike for around 2 hours for $20, and it was plenty of time to bike the strip between Hollywood Beach and Fort Lauderdale.  My cousin had to work during the day, so I was by myself and still had a blast because there was so many activities to do!  Below is a photo of the bike I rented and I am standing in between Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale Beach! Gorgeous!

If you need more action, then you HAVE to check out the flow rider machine at “Margaritaville” which is located right on the beach! I had been checking it out throughout the day, and my cousin convinced me to try it out! After about 20 wipe outs I finally got up on the board for a few waves!  My whole body ached the next day, but it was totally worth it! The instructors were friendly and patient! I paid $30 for 30 minutes ..Here is the link for more info!

I also highly suggest taking some time to relax by throwing up a hammock up and enjoying the beautiful ocean view.  The sunsets are breathtaking! My cousin and I had a great time just talking and hanging, which is a totally FREE activity to do! 🙂

There so many more things to do at Fort Lauderdale, but I hope that helped inspire you to venture out to see their beautiful beaches!  If you are looking for other things to do at Fort Lauderdale beach check out this website for all the event information!  It lists the shop, restaurants, and activities to do if you are in the area! I hope you enjoy my photography below! Thanks!
