Hotels Near Downtown Fort Lauderdale

There’s always something happening downtown — and it’s just a bike ride or Water Taxi ride from the hotel. Start by getting your history fix at Bonnet House Museum, a historic estate with an architectural legacy; and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, Fort Lauderdale’s version of Central Park. Also not to miss: Stranahan House Museum, the oldest surviving structure in Broward County, which was built in 1901 as a trading post and converted into a residence in 1906. And, there’s culture in store for you at the always-fascinating Museum of Discovery and Science, where you can take a simulated ride to Mars; as well as the Broward Center For The Performing Arts, where jazz lovers gather to picnic every Sunday while local jazz artists play.
