Fort Lauderdale Beach A lonely beach in a beautiful day. #beachbound #ftlauderdalebeach #sunrise at the #beach #florida during a layover. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you have a few hours during your layover. #goldenhour On a layover we took a taxi to the #beach to watch the sunrise. It was so beautiful & the water was so warm. #waterlust Beautiful beaches. Small chunk of Fort Lauderdale beach. It's a great town lots to do, see and places to eat love it there :) I saw this American Redstart at Snyder Park just north of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport.
#birds #wildlife #Florida Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida, USA. Enjoy a fishing day on your visit to
Ft Lauderdale FL Excellent steak with attentive service here. Get the Tuna Crudo and Foie Gras tacos! Skip the desserts here. #beach #sunrise #goldenhour Stayed at a very nice hotel right on the beach. The sand on the beaches was a little rocky but still very soft. If you are staying in Ft. Lauderdale the beach is a must! Amongst all the building of luxury condos on the beach I was able to find this little distraction from all the commotion Fort Lauderdale boasts 7 miles of sparkling beaches, one of the best summer destination in the US.... Fort Lauderdale is famous for its beaches, arts cultures and events. Experience a beachfront landscape promenade with its signature white wave wall and bricked paved path. Across the street are luxury hotels , great restaurants and shopping. We stayed at the Marriott Beach Place when we were there... #beach #sunrise #waterlust Honest to God, this is the coolest place I've ever been to, to see a band play live. And I've been to A LOT of venues in my time. This is a 3 level club that actually gives you a 360 degree view (through windows) of the stage from the 3rd level. Seriously, if you haven't been and you live in south Florida, just go. By the way, this shot is of the band, Mute Math. :) The marina in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A real taste of the FL Keys In a glass. The Islamorada Ale an No Tan Lines are a must have. I saw this Cape May Warbler at Snyder Park in Fort Lauderdale.
