Yay! For The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi

We've talked and written about it before here and here and we still believe that the Water Taxi is still one of the best things to do in Fort Lauderdale.

We try to take it at least once, every time we are down here and this summer was no exception.


Originally they had just one route sailing along the canals of Fort Lauderdale but now they actually have 3 routes, one extends all the way down to Hollywood and the other services New River.  With 3 distinct routes, they now have transfer stops so you can hop from one route to the other.

Fort Lauderdale Weather in August

South Florida's Hottest Month of the Year

Very similar to July, Fort Lauderdale weather in August is an interesting mix of intense heat, fleeting afternoon thunderstorms, beautifully warm seas and crystal clear blue skies.

Hotels are chock full of tourists and the bars and cafes along the beach are filled to the brim with happy vacationing patrons.

August is hot and humid with average daily temperatures in the 90s. Even at dinner time the thermometer is often well above 80 degrees so if you're coming for a visit in August pack light both in the number of items you bring (because you'll be in your bathing suit most of the time) and the type of clothing you pack.

Fort Lauderdale Weather in July

South Florida—Felling Hot! Hot! Hot!

What can we say? Fort Lauderdale weather in July can only be described as hot! Humidity levels are rising and everyone is cranking up the air conditioning.

With average high temperatures in the 90s, July is likely the hottest month of the year down here in South Florida with August coming in a very close second.
2016: We just got back from spending the month of July in Fort Lauderdale and it was a textbook month. Hot, humid and sunny every day.

However, we did feel that there were less thunderstorms than in previous years. In past years, we remember daily thunderstorms that pass through quickly and then head back out to sea. It was also windier than normal for July, but the wind was a welcome addition given the heat. We've said it before but if you enjoy spending your day at the beach Summer is the perfect time to experience South Florida.

Anglins Beach Cafe - Commercial Pier

Since Lauderdale-by-the-sea did such a great job revamping the area near the beach at the Pier we've been spending a fair amount of time in the area and  thought we'd give the Beach Cafe another chance.


We hadn't eaten there in a couple of years and although the scenery and setting were great the food was just average and a little greasy. Boy have things changed!

Although we noticed a name change to Organic Beach Cafe last year and the addition of a new side terrace we still never found the time to give it another try. We wish we had sooner....

Las Olas Art Fair - March

We love the Las Olas Art Fair! It's the perfect setting for spending the day enjoying art, sampling food, and strolling in the sunshine. This is Part II of the 27th annual event, Part 1 was in early January and admission is FREE!


Although they haven't mentioned how many artists will be exhibiting in March, they usually have about 150 or so. Each artist sets up a tent-booth that acts as a mini art gallery.
