The best brewery space aesthetics I have ever seen. There are lots of seats, and different seating arrangements. Even though there are often many patrons, very busy, the service was fantastic. The beer selection available is diverse and there are more taps than most brewed offer. Good snacks.

This place has it all and is a must see when you are in town. Its the central hub of the beach area and reminds me of a boardwalk you see on the Jersey shore. Its just a delightful place to sit and watch the waves of the ocean while you listen to live music ( most nights) from the close by restaurants
The view is magnificent and there is colorful Adirondack chairs to sit and relax in

This museum is a reproduction of a Packard showroom from the 1920s. On display are 22 Packard motor cars from the 1900s to the 1940s, all in full working order. Among them, are Roadsters with compartments for golf clubs, a doctor's coupe with a compartment for his medical bag, and a 1929 645 Dual Cowl Phaeton that can self-lubricate its chassis as it drives along the road.
this is one of the top top class automobile museums which I ever visited
I rank it to the level of the Mulhouse (France) Schlumpf Collection, which is said in the 10 best in the world.
Only-Packard Museum, but all cars maintained WITH LOVE !!! exciting for elder (who remember those cars : "He owns a Packard", meaning la crème de la crème of car owners) as well as for the younger ones, to see how BEAUTIFUL those pieces of art were designed. DO NOT MISS !!!

The pier goes for hundred feet into the ocean. It 's romantic enough to walk down this pier and look at the fish and sites and fishermen testing their luck. Snacks and beverages are available from concessions and the views are breathtaking. It should be free but I guess it's privately owned and maintenance is expensive?? A tourist destination at the end of Commercial Blvd.

This is a small (5.4 acres) city of Wilton Manors park. There is an accessible path through the park, which is partly elevated through a piece of a mangrove swamp. Throughout the path, there are a number of signs with habitat descriptions. The path leads to a boat ramp on a branch of the Middle River. Nearby, there was a concessionaire from whom you can rent a kayak. It doesn't take very long to stroll through the entire park.
There is a historic house, built in 1925, and a pavilion with many picnic tables that can be rented out for group functions. This property has some of the tallest royal palms I have ever seen.

World Famous, South Florida Artist, Sean Garman creates a mold directly from YOUR hands and then produces a beautiful, museum quality sculpture of YOUR HANDS that you will love forever and will be treasured in your family for generations! The molding process is fun and only takes anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour depending on the sculpture you want. Our Holding Hands mold process takes around 15 minutes and the Family Hands of 3 or more takes about 30 minutes. Body Sculptures can take a bit longer depending on the size and pose. When the mold is complete, the casting process begins. The mold is prepped and then the sculpture is cast in a very fine, architectural casting stone/cement that captures very fine detail and is durable enough to last for generations. When the casting is complete and the sculpture is fully dry, the finish is applied. You also have a choice of 3 finishes; Brass, Silver or Bronze. Add a beautiful wood base and your museum quality sculpture is complete!
I saw their page on facebook and although I live far away, my visit was worth every mile. What Sean does with his art is priceless. From the time you meet them, till the time you leave they treat you like family. They were so gracious and made my mom and I feel special. See my mom has been sick for a while and we have been in and out of hospitals. One night while holding her hand it came to me that Sean could memorialized such a special moment forever. So I called and the rest is history. Today I picked up my sculpture and it is amazing! I am forever thankful. I recommend it to anyone!!!

The South Florida Brew Bus proudly offers Brewery Tours throughout South Florida! Boasting one of the fastest growing craft beer scenes in the country, South Florida is a gold mine for beer enthusiasts. The Brew Bus is a Bus Tour Company dedicated to promoting these local breweries by offering a unique and personal beer tour experience.
I hired the BrewBus for a team building event for the company. We used the time on the bus for 'get to know' activities, and enjoyed the learning about the brewing business together. The staff is top notch. They helped us craft an experience that was new for the team and they made sure everyone was taken care of. Even if you have folks who don't drink beer, it's a great experience to learn about the process.

Navigate the canals that have earned Fort Lauderdale its nickname, "Venice of America."
We happened to be on the Intracoastal Waterway (aka the ICW or I.C.W.) just before sunset. The scenery on the ICW changes constantly with different boats around you. There are many bars and restaurants along the ICW where you can dock your boat and go ashore to eat or have a cocktail. The skyline is ever-changing as are the sunsets. It would be a fun trip to take a tour boat along the ICW to learn more about the different buildings, homes or the history of the ICW.

Blessed Sacrament is a friendly, welcoming Catholic Church in Oakland Park, FL, just on the border of Fort Lauderdale. We offer daily mass each weekday morning and Saturday morning at 8AM and Sunday celebrations at 4PM Saturday (Vigil Mass), 9AM, 10:45AM and 7PM Sundays. We have a wonderful Store of Inspiration that is open after each of the Masses.
From the moment i walked into this church. I felt very welcomed. Nice people, good preaching and excellent music. Not the music you would hear in a typical Catholic church. The congregation is very diverse. The 10:45AM Sunday Mass is the most popular and features the choir.
