Fort Lauderdale, Florida


Even though I am not a fan of large cities and the traffic and congestion that they bring, there are some things I love about a large city. Fort Lauderdale is one of those cities that I have a love-hate relationship with.

On the love side: ~great restaurants and bars within walking distance of the marina at Bahia Mar

~a wonderful eclectic area for window shopping / eating – Las Olas Blvd – accessible by either taxi  or water taxi

~the Red Door Spa at the Galleria Mall (I treat myself to a massage / manicure / pedicure every time I come to Ft. Lauderdale)

~quick turn around on needed marine items – canvas shops, marine mattress shops, anything marine related

~An abundance of marine related stores – supplies, engines, canvas, sail lofts, SAT phones, etc.

~great grocery stores with large selection (Publix, Whole Foods, Fresh Market)

Fort Lauderdale

On the hate side:


~road construction

~chaotic driving
