Questions & Answers

I'm visiting Hollywood, FL with my husband, 5 year old, and 10 month old. We're going to dedicate one day to visiting Ft. Lauderdale via water taxi. We're excited for the ride itself (5 year old gets a kick out of boats), but also want to get the most out of our limited exposure to Ft. Lauderdale. I know nothing about the city. What stops should we get off at - we'll want to see sites if there are any notable ones, eat, and generally have a family-friendly, laid-back fun time. We'd prefer something unique to Ft. Lauderdale (vs. what we can get in any city or back in Hollywood, FL, where we'll be spending the week). Thanks for any tips! I also welcome any advice about the water taxi experience itself, as I'm a bit nervous about missing the trip back and definitely don't want to miss the ride by the great houses and yachts I've been reading about. Thanks again! Rebecca

Carol J, Yes there are two stops within 10 minutes walking distance. The hotel concierge can help you with the exact time the next water taxi will be at the stops.

I've been in the Jungle Queen and based in my experience,I reccomend you to use the Water Taxi instead. For shopping, I reccomend you Las Olas blvd, and the Galleria shoping mall.
