Getting to Fort Lauderdale

The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is located approximately 15 minutes from the Marriott Harbor Beach. Southwest flights open up May 30th.

Things to Do

Las Olas Boulevard

Las Olas is the "main drag" of Ft Lauderdale and runs east to west, from downtown to the beach. There are tons of great restaurants & bars west of the beach on the strip, some of our personal favorites are Louie Bossi's and El Camino. You'll also find boutiques, art galleries, and speciality shops. 

Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi

Our favorite way to see Fort Lauderdale!

Fort Lauderdale is home to 165 miles of intracoastal waterways. Spend a day cruising past seaside mansions, restaurants, and extravagant yachts as your captain provides narration about the sights. Hop on and off along the way to explore the sights, restaurants and bars.

Stop # 5 is a 2 minute walk from the Marriott Harbor Beach. Take the water taxi South to Las Olas Boulevard or  one stop North to the center of Fort Lauderdale Beach. A full day pass is $28pp ($18 after 5pm).

Where to Eat

Historic former residence with ocean views & Mediterranean-American plates, plus live piano music. 

A chill, beachy hangout on the Intracoastal dishing fresh seafood & Sunday brunch while yachts cruise by. Try the scoobies!

Locally sourced, upscale eatery serving New American & coastal cuisine along with sushi & drinks.

Our favorite for Italian food on Las Olas Blvd - Neapolitan pies, pastas, salumi & a piazza with bocce.

Festive dining space featuring Mexican cuisine & cocktails, plus a spacious patio with ocean vistas.
