Tours are an ideal way for anyone to learn more about a new city without resorting to drastic measures such as running for mayor. Get acquainted with Fort Lauderdale the easy way with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two riverfront-cruise admissions, two hot dogs, two bags of chips, and open-bar access (a $50 value) from Riverfront Cruise and Anticipation Yacht Charters.

Riverfront Cruises navigates sightseers along the scenic New River for exclusive looks at spectacular architecture and luxurious yachts. Coast Guard–licensed captains narrate the 90-minute exploration as the spacious vessel winds through Millionaire's Row, a lavish stretch of real estate speckled between cascading palm trees. The cruise pairs mega-home gazing with hot dogs, chips, and an open bar, ensuring that gaping mouths are kept busy as passengers stare in wonderment at the passing opulence. Guests can expect to see such sites as the House of Butterflies, the home featured in The Six Million Dollar Man, and Port Everglades, where eyes anchor their stares in the direction of high-tech military vessels, elegant cruise ships, and platinum-pedaled paddle boats. Crews depart docks on schedule every day of the week at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.

“The standard question down here is, ‘Don’t you ever get tired of doing this?’ And we always say, ‘It’s better than working’,” Captain Gary Bobrick says in a Sun Sentinel video. It's easy to believe that he enjoys his job because it usually involves piloting a sightseeing boat through Fort Lauderdale's river ways to point out celebrity mansions and massive luxury boats. In addition to views of prime real estate, his tours often afford glimpses of flitting manatees and iguanas lounging along the shores. On the vessel’s lower level, patrons can congregate in an air-conditioned dining room and replenish with tropical punch and ice cream. Along the way, Captain Bobrick or his tour guides impart anecdotes about cultural heavyweights, as well as the role waterways play in fueling the region’s legendary water-balloon fights.
