It’s easy to think that downtown Ft Lauderdale, Las Olas area, the two miles in front of the famous Beach Place and all the four to five star resorts that cradle the beach front of Ft Lauderdale famous beach are all ft lauderdale offers. And that’s okay, with beautiful weather eight months out of the year, all of Ft Lauderdale’s tourist seem to know exactly where to find it’s treasure.
But venturing a little north of all it’s treasure, is just an added bonus to the area. Lauderdale by the Sea may get over-shadowed by its Beach Place location but the beach at Lauderdale by the sea is just as gorgeous. The area showcases zagat rated restaurants, beachfront townhouses and touristic boutique like shops. But for quite some time now i have thought, why Lauderdale by the Sea, after all a little further south is by the sea just the same. The big difference in the two locations is that with Lauderdale by the sea, residential housing can be literally on the beach where as near Beach Place this is not the case. If you have any other reason be certain to share them with us.
