Quirky, under-the-radar highlights only a local could recommend.
ETARU is a neighborhood restaurant, welcoming local diners with a menu and vibe that embraces its waterfront setting. In a stunning multi-functional space steps away from the sand, the restaurant will evolve throughout the day and night, with a ground level beach club, restaurant and bar.
Water Taxi Tours
From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., these bright yellow boats pick up at Beachwalk Resort’s poolside dock and offer up-close-and-personal views of the mansions and yachts of Hollywood Beach and Fort Lauderdale, stopping at 20 different spots along the way. An all-day ticket is $26.
Beachwalk Resort Bistro
Happy hour from Sunday through Friday (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.) offers half-off deals on house drinks, house wines, draft beer, and appetizers in this resort-based bistro. Go for an Apple Splash Margarita and a plate of the Beachwalk nachos, loaded with jalapeños, cheese, black beans, scallions, guacamole, and pico de gallo.
A free ride from Beachwalk in a Mercedes-Benz takes guests to this entertainment district, which features a racetrack, a bowling lounge, restaurants, bars, a shopping mall (including Pottery Barn, Container Store, and Williams-Sonoma), and a casino, in addition to the horse-racing events.
