If you’re on the hunt for Fort Lauderdale activities, just look to the water. The Fort Lauderdale beach scene is teeming with fun things to do. Companies like American Watersports will get you on the water with jet skis and standup paddleboards, plus they rent beach chairs and cozy cabanas to help you work on your tan (juicy beach read not included). Hop aboard the Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi for a narrated cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway, and hop off to shop and eat along the famed Las Olas Boulevard. And if rain gets in the way of your outdoor plans, stop into the International Swimming Hall of Fame for aquatic memorabilia and exhibits instead—don’t miss the life-size wax statue of swimming legend Mark Spitz.
