Fort Lauderdale Beach
The beaches of Fort Lauderdale at the east end of Las Olas Blvd have long been a favorite, Spring Breakers flocked to the beaches in the sixties after the film "Where the Boys are". But now the college Spring Break crowd has greatly diminished and replaced by a new type of beachcomber. Now the beaches of Fort Lauderdale are visited by international tourist, families with children and of course locals.
The beaches of Fort Lauderdale are classic South Florida beaches
with clean Gulf Stream waters that cleanse the shores with warm tropical water. The crowds are diverse and make for interesting people watching with nearby eating and drinking establishments just off the sand. Parking is adequate during the weekdays while weekends can present a challenge for those looking for a beachfront parking space.
The public beach area runs a mile north from South Beach Park to Hugh Taylor Birch State Recreation area. Palm trees and life guard towers are dotted along the beach offering both shade from the sun and safety to those who venture into the Atlantic Ocean.
