Great location - close to the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International - free shuttle pick up and drop off to / from the airport. Close to strip malls and lots of eating options. Close to public transport, eg the Sun Trolley HOHO for $2-3 all day pass. Close to the cruise terminal for paid shuttle or taxi service. Re the hotel itself - large king size room, very clean, complimentary hot breakfast. Great customer service from the front desk

It was really ...
... There is more than 23 miles of beaches but very little surf by Australian standards. Fort Lauderdale is the wreck dive site capital of the United States with more than 80 coral and artificial reefs.
We caught the Sun Trolley ($2 per person to ride all day) that links the beach with restaurants and shops along the picturesque Las Olas Boulevard to the Historic Arts and Entertainment district where we boarded a ...
... move as I can imagine the wine on board will have a massive 3-5x mark-up.
For lunch, we visited Captain Jim's Seafood restaurant in North Miami. A local dive type of place with a fish market at the front of the store and restaurant at the back. Wife wanted stone crab so we loaded up on this for the last time. She loves them and so do I but its more "like" than love. Season finishes May 15. I think I prefer the ...
