Funky Buddha Brewery

Reviewed By Leah C

The best brewery space aesthetics I have ever seen. There are lots of seats, and different seating arrangements. Even though there are often many patrons, very busy, the service was fantastic. The beer selection available is diverse and there are more taps than most brewed offer. Good snacks.

Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum

This museum is a reproduction of a Packard showroom from the 1920s. On display are 22 Packard motor cars from the 1900s to the 1940s, all in full working order. Among them, are Roadsters with compartments for golf clubs, a doctor's coupe with a compartment for his medical bag, and a 1929 645 Dual Cowl Phaeton that can self-lubricate its chassis as it drives along the road.

I rank it to the level of the Mulhouse (France) Schlumpf Collection, which is said in the 10 best in the world.

Richardson Historic Park and Nature Preserve

Reviewed By urbanguy - Richmond, Virginia

This is a small (5.4 acres) city of Wilton Manors park. There is an accessible path through the park, which is partly elevated through a piece of a mangrove swamp. Throughout the path, there are a number of signs with habitat descriptions. The path leads to a boat ramp on a branch of the Middle River. Nearby, there was a concessionaire from whom you can rent a kayak. It doesn't take very long to stroll through the entire park.

There is a historic house, built in 1925, and a pavilion with many picnic tables that can be rented out for group functions. This property has some of the tallest royal palms I have ever seen.

Stonewall Gallery National Museum & Archives

Reviewed By Doug F - Rochester, New York

This gem of a museum focuses upon the history of LGBT people and rights in the US during the 20th century. The very detailed time line covers LGBT life in America from 1900 to 1999. Did you know, for example, that the Everard Baths was a gay baths in New York City that was raided by the police back in 1908. Or that two years before the Stonewall Bar in New York City was raided by the police sparking a revolution in gay rights back in 1969, a different bar in a different midwest city (I forgot which one) was also raided by the police sparking massive protests by the local gay community. And that this was in 1967, two years before Stonewall! Even if you think you know your LGBT history, this will reveal more than you probably know. A must visit for anyone, gay or straight, coming to South Florida!

Intracoastal Waterway

Navigate the canals that have earned Fort Lauderdale its nickname, "Venice of America."

Reviewed By Allen21096 - Chicago, Illinois

We happened to be on the Intracoastal Waterway (aka the ICW or I.C.W.) just before sunset. The scenery on the ICW changes constantly with different boats around you. There are many bars and restaurants along the ICW where you can dock your boat and go ashore to eat or have a cocktail. The skyline is ever-changing as are the sunsets. It would be a fun trip to take a tour boat along the ICW to learn more about the different buildings, homes or the history of the ICW.

Every time we go we get incredible deals! My favorite finds so far: two great Ikea lounge chairs for $30 each and six high-end silk ties for less than $30 total! (We're talking Joseph A Bank, Tommy Hilfiger, etc.) Not the largest selection of women's clothing, but still a great store.

Stranahan House

The Historic Stranahan House Museum is the City's oldest surviving structure. The story of the Stranahan House is the story of a family, a house, and a city. The Stranahan House was built in 1901 by Frank Stranahan, Fort Lauderdale's founding father, and his wife Ivy Cromartie Stranahan, the area's first school teacher. The house has served as a trading post, post office, community center, town hall and home to the Stranahans. The Stranahan House has stood at the center of Fort Lauderdales growth since it was built and played a significant role in the economic and social life of this community. Open daily for guided House tours at 1, 2, and 3pm. Special events, weddings, and holiday programs.

Reviewed By John L - Fort Lauderdale, Florida

The Stranahan House is located on our beautiful river walk, the large trees and the water views are well worth the trip, as for the Stranahan house itself (in my opinion is a snoozer) but I’m no history buff! I will mention I was Married on this little stretch of beauty on the water & our reception was in the restaurant located directly next to the Stranahan house, At one time called “The River House” in 2005. This is the reason for the 5 stars.

Been going there for 7 years and we always get couples massage. Great deals and service. We have the same therapists (which tells you what a great place this is) and we are always treated with such respect and care. They always have sales going on. I highly recommend the mini spa which is 180 minutes of massage and body scrub... I walk on clouds for a week after visiting Chi Spa <3
