Three nights in Ft lauderdale

by travelrookie »

We will be spending 3 nights in Ft lauderdale in February, before taking a Panama Cruise. This will be our first time in the area and would appreciate any advice on "must see" places or best things to do.

Fort Lauderdale is very close to Miami, so I'd recommend spending at least one day there, seeing Vizcaya (a wonderful historic home made, in large part, of coral) and the art deco beauties of Miami Beach. As for Fort Lauderdale, there are some nearby swamp tours to take, and of course, there's the allure of kicking back on the beach. Frankly, I think Miami is the more interesting destination and would suggest you switch your plans to spend the three days there.
