HOW DOES A FRONT ROW SEAT FROM YOUR OWN PRIVATE BALCONY SOUND? 

Spend the weekend on Ft. Lauderdale beach and attend the “Best Show on H2O.” Arrive on Friday and the day is yours to walk the strip, sit on the beach with a nice cold drink or lay by the pool. The day and night are yours to explore. As an added bonus, complimentary passes for the water taxi!  One of our colorful taxis will whisk you off and onto the picturesque Intracoastal Waterway, dotted with boats of every type and lined with modern high rises, mansions, and iguanas (also very colorful, by the way!) “What’s that I see? A celebrity boarding a yacht looking back at me?” Anything’s possible when you’re on a Water Taxi. Your crew has seen it all and they’ll fill you in on the area’s rich history, happenings and “who lives there?” Thirsty? You can wet your whistle on board thanks to a bevy of beverages. Hungry? Your captain can steer you towards any number of excellent eateries along our route.

You can cruise to your heart’s content or hop off and take in the best the area has to offer, from Fort Lauderdale to Hollywood. Dining, drinks, shops and entertainment – it’s all yours for the taking when you take the Water Taxi.

On Saturday, events will be happening leading up to The Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade.

The Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade is the “Best Show on H2O” and the traditional kickoff to the South Florida Holiday Season. Bringing together our community and visitors from around the world, this one-of-a-kind parade of beautifully decorated boats of all sizes is a can’t miss extravaganza. With over a million viewers along the 12-mile parade route.

The event has been judged as one of the top 10 parades in the world among 50,000 parades, so you know it has to be good. The parade begins at 630pm when all of the boats entered in the parade gather along the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale to begin their slow procession down the waterway. The parade route runs a total of 12 miles beginning downtown on the New River to the Intracoastal Waterway, then proceeding north along the ICW past Bahia Mar and ending in Pompano Beach. The extravagantly lighted vessels quite often also have musical groups; recently the real live Barbra Streisand was on one yacht singing away.

Let’s Go! Walking is the best way to get to know a new place. I’m energetic and enjoy a good physical challenge, so I’m always ready to spend the day on the move. Whether it’s public transit, city streets or village cobblestones, I’m game..
