Fort Lauderdale

Want to take a break from the rat race? Fort Lauderdale has a good range of things to see and do.

This Southeast Florida location has some 170,000 people.

Tallahassee, the state capital, is roughly 390 miles to the northwest of Fort Lauderdale, and Boca Raton is 16 miles to the north.

Butterfly World and the My Jewish Discovery Place Children's Museum are wonderful places to have some quality time with your kids. The Cinema Paradiso and Funderdome are also worth visiting if you're looking for more family fun.

You'll have a blast investigating the rare and exotic inhabitants at the Native Village. Be sure to ask the staff about feeding times and where to find the zoo's favorite species.

Chances are you've already spent some time sampling the beers of Fort Lauderdale, so why not head over to the Funky Buddha Brewery and find out why it's so delicious? If you're lucky, they might need a taste-tester!

To truly taste what this region is made of, head for the Best Cellar. Take a stroll through the vineyards and sample some expertly crafted wines. If you find something that you're particularly taken with, pick up a few bottles to share with friends at home.

Let the good times roll at the Isle Casino and Racing and the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and have a spin on the roulette wheel. If you can't get enough of the high-energy action, why not also try the Mardi Gras Casino and the Seminole Casino Hollywood?

Plant lovers will appreciate an informative walk through the Flamingo Gardens.

When it's time for a break, pick up some lunch and find a shady nook at one of the area's pleasant green spaces, such as The ArtsPark at Young Circle and Sunview Park. Topeekeegee Yugnee Park and Secret Woods Nature Center are two more nice places to while away a lazy day with a good book.

Be sure to set aside a day or two to experience some of the scenic stretches of surrounding coast, such as Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park and Fort Lauderdale Beach Park. The Casino at Dania Beach and Canine Beach are also recommended options.

Turn off your phone and take a break from the stress of the modern world at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park and Quiet Waters Park. Tradewinds Park and Anne Kolb Nature Center are also popular with nature-loving travelers.

Broaden your perspectives with a trip to one of the area's fascinating cultural spaces. Savor the contemplative atmosphere as you check out the displays at the International Swimming Hall of Fame and the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum. You might also want to consider a visit to the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum and the Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum.

Admire the collection of artifacts and gadgets at the Museum of Discovery and Science or Buehler Planetarium and Observatory, a great day out for nerds and novices alike.

Fort Lauderdale is a hub of artistic activity, with galleries all over the place. Start your tour of this creative destination with a stop at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale and the Old Dillard Art and Cultural Museum. The New River Fine Art Gallery and the Pocock Fine Art and Antiques are also well worth a browse if you can squeeze them in.

History nerds will love spending the day at the Fort Lauderdale History Center, where they can learn about tomorrow by studying the forgotten past. In addition to that, it might be fun to study the objects on display at the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society or the Plantation Historical Museum.

Wander back through this region's past with a visit to Historic Stranahan House Museum or Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, just two of the historical sites here. When it comes to bygone times, there's always something else to know. The Las Olas Riverfront and the Riverwalk are two more insightful places to stop by.

Learn about the region's spiritual side and enjoy some quiet contemplation at the Fort Lauderdale Florida Temple and the Congregation Ahavat Shalom. Metaphysical Chapel of South Florida and First Presbyterian Church are two more intriguing holy places.

Before you pack your suitcase and head home, ensure you check out some of Fort Lauderdale's other attractions. Two interesting options are the Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino and the Xtreme Indoor Karting. If you have more time to spare, also check out the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood or the African - American Research Library and Cultural Center.
