I love the crystal clear tropical water we have here and watching the cruise ships leave from the port on the beach..I have the opportunity to see this every week and it amazes me every time.
Where are some of your favorite places to go on Fort Lauderdale Beach? Things change - so a few years ago I would say the Elbo Room and the beach right in front of it. Now that I have a child I enjoy going to Fort Lauderdale Beach Park. It has the most amazing playground around with a view that I fell in love with when I first came down here 20 years ago.
