This is one of the best ways to explore parts of Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The water taxi is a fun means of transportation to check out the older homes that face the water.

This is an area you can tour for days not hours. The views are great and always changing. We had great weather so that even made the time more enjoyable.

Didn't boat on the waterways but thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants overlooking this amazing amenity. Nothing better than sitting outdoors enjoying some food and a beer and watching the boats go by. Recommended.
