    We had been visiting the Fort Lauderdale area for a number of years when our kids were smaller and we remember how lively and entertaining Las Olas Riverfront was some 10 years ago. Full of restaurant...  more »

    a walk different, on the banks of the river... a picturesque place where the first houses in fort lauderdale. There is a shopping centre (the waves) that are absolutely abandoned encuantra. This ride has two aspects, one quiet day of week and other very picturesque, with stalls of handicrafts, with families in the area making lunches in place, very cozy and quaint.

    Nice Sunday outing! You can admire the boats while drinking a beer at an Irish bar.

    A complete ghost town now. It was once beautiful and bustling. What a shame. Someone needs to revive it. Location is beautiful

    Sad place. So much potential for a perfect riverside spot, but it seems the economy has claimed some more victims. There are still some shops and restaurants here but the riverside portion is closed, dead and drab. Hope this changes someday.

    Great food, good value in a friendly, unpretentious, family setting just off the Riverwalk. I eat here at least once a week and always leave satisfied. You gotta love pizza dough thrown by a true Italian the old school way.Try the meat roll and it probably won't be your last. Love this place!
