When visiting Fort Lauderdale, one of the best places to take in the city’s swaying palm trees, bustling marinas and endless promenade is Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Nearby must-see urban adventures include a stop at the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens. Built in 1920, the house and gardens aim to preserve a piece of South Florida’s past, and tell a fascinating story of the former homeowners.

Each of these attractions give visitors a glimpse into Fort Lauderdale’s unique past and act as an informative starting point when exploring the city.
