Fort Lauderdale is our favorite jumping off point cruising. We enjoy flying in the day prior to a cruise and spend the afternoon and evening at The Hilton Marina. 17th street offers a wide selection of stores and restaurants, and a Walgreen Drugstore for those items that didn't make it into your luggage.

We did it by ourselves. Took Broward County Transit to Hollywood Beach and used the Water Taxi Service. We also went to Sawgrass Mills Mall.

We ate at The Rustic Inn on Dania Beach. They offer a free shuttle to/from their restaurant. They have a huge menu with a wide variety of seafood offerings. We had the double lobster tails and also the Queen crab which came with 3 clusters per order. Their Hurricane drinks are great. This is a casual restaurant serving many people who are using hammers to open their seafood. So it is a bit on the noisy side, but everyone seemed to be having a good time. Our waitress even asked if we wanted our lobster delivered at a separate time from our crab so that it would still be hot. It is a moderately expensive place, but the seafood was cooked perfectly.

Enjoyed the airboat ride and alligator show. Our tour guide (Lance) was particularly good. He filled the ride to and from the Everglades with lots of interesting and relevant information.

After the cruise we spent one overnight in Fort Lauderdale. We spent the day on the water taxis exploring the area. It was interesting to see the mega boats on the water and the expensive masions. Spending one day in Fort Lauderdale was okay, but I think the family would find it boring spending more time there. We seemed to be the wrong demographics as most of the people were older adults and young partying adults. The hotel in Fort Lauderdale was again okay for one night, but was very rough around the edges. We stayed at the Hilton Marina. I liked that the hotel was right on the water. We could get the water taxi right from the hotel and we could walk around the marina and look at boats. They had a pool but it was too cold to try it. The room itself was old and in bad need of a remodel. The doors were creaky with paint pealing off and the bathroom appeared old . Read Less

Not a great weather day (rainy) but well run. We didn't see wild gators but a gator show at the end was great.
