The Insider’s Guide: Fort Lauderdale


Melissa, Allegiant Flight Attendant & Fort Lauderdale Insider

No longer is Fort Lauderdale just known for its swank beaches and man-made canals. It now has a vibrant culture and entertainment scene that has led to Fort Lauderdale becoming a destination of its own. Our resident insider breaks it all down.

Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum
Get a closer look at one of the finest automobiles ever built in America by viewing over 20 restored vintage Packards from 1908 – 1958, all in full working order, along with a gallery dedicated to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Bonnet House Museum & Gardens
It’s not your average museum. It’s a trip through time to the early 20th century. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s one of the few complete homes and studios of an artist open to the public. Filled with art and treasures of the Birch/Bartlett families, the estate’s gardens also showcase Evelyn Bartlett’s exquisite orchid collection.

Fort Lauderdale Beaches
From the family friendly in the north to the hip and trendy in the south, there’s a beach for everyone in Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale Beach is always on everyone’s top 10 list. For an unspoiled perspective, the Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park is a must-see. And the award-winning Hollywood Beach is still a classic in terms of its fun and entertainment. Check our Fort Lauderdale’s beaches here, here and here.

Wreck Bar
The world-famous Wreck Bar is located within the beautiful B Ocean Resort, which is situated right on Fort Lauderdale beach. Be sure to try one of their cocktail concoctions and sit at the bar for the best view of the live mermaid show performed nightly. Note the 9:30 p.m. show is for adults only.
