15 Most Popular Fort Lauderdale Hotels

Although summer is cheaper, visitors to Ft. Lauderdale flock in all year long. Winter (November-March) is an ideal time to visit the area, especially if you're coming from chillier climates...

However, keep in mind that this is the season of snowbirds and things don't come too cheap (or un-crowded). Average weather... Summer is hot, hot, hot. The breeze from the Atlantic slightly helps to cool the air, but the humidity is enough to keep you indoors.

This is a great time of year for watersports, as the water temperature is rather balmy. Winter in Ft. Lauderdale is perfect. The temperatures average in the low to mid 70s, dropping to mid 60s at night. Summer is the rainy season. Expect at least one tropical-style downpour per day, but it's not usually enough to put a damper on your day. Transportation Your best bet is to drive in Ft. Lauderdale.

Situated off Interstate 95, there are a number of different exits you can take in this city. It's rather sprawling and not conducive to walking--unless you're staying along the Las Olas strip. Except during rush hour, Ft. Lauderdale is a fairly easy place in which to drive. East-west I-595 runs from westernmost Broward County and links I-75 with I-95 and U.S. 1. If you're worried about drinking and driving or just want to spend time in the water, hail a Water Taxi, which provides service along the Intracoastal Waterway. These taxi boats stop at more than 30 restaurants, hotels, shops, and nightclubs, the fare is $26 for an all-day pass. When it comes to the big yellow taxi, keep in mind this isn't New York. You may be able to catch one at a major hotel, otherwise call ahead. As of 2017 fares are not cheap, meters run at a rate of $2.75 for the first mile and $2.45 for each additional mile, waiting time is 40¢ per minute. In-season costs skyrocket and reservations are a must when tourism peaks from November through early April.

Day Trips.... Enjoy your day in Hollywood. And don't forget to stroll along the scenic Broadwalk or walk through the aviary at Flamingo Gardens, in Davie, before relaxing in peaceful Hollywood North Beach Park. South Beach, Bay Side, Art Deco District of Miami--these are only a 45-minute drive.

Head over to Coral Gables to take in the eye-popping display of 1920s.

Also keep in mind that, time permitting, you can continue your drive south all the way to Key West (about 4 hours) and indulge in some margaritas, snorkeling, parasailing and just plain (sometimes raunchy) fun.
