Any taxi can get you from point A to point B. But the Water Taxi makes it interesting in a way no land vehicle can, affording unique views of Birch State Park's natural landscapes and the bustling Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk along the way. The destinations tend to be equally scenic. As it travels throughout Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, the Water Taxi makes 19 stops at places ranging from beautiful beaches to acclaimed restaurants.
Hitting them all is easy with hop-on, hop-off service, which makes it convenient for waterfront residents and visitors to get around. Riders can pick up tickets on board, online, or at several area hotels. In addition to the regular schedule, captains guide Water Taxi's vessels for private chartered voyages, such as moonlight cruises and scavenger hunts.
The people behind Miami Exotic Car Rentals are car enthusiasts themselves?so they know exactly what fellow car fanatics look for in exotic rides. Their impressive fleet includes Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces, and Mercedes, each of which receives meticulous care and service from equally passionate technicians.

Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin DB9, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into Ferraris or Lamborghinis on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower ride three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to its full potential. Riders conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.
