A December 2000 trip
to Fort Lauderdale by superpurd
Quote: Spent 4 days prior to going on a cruise with Royal Caribbean. We toured around the area extensively, found the weather great, lots of interesting things to do and places to go during our stay.

I found it interesting and I am not really interested in birds and butterflies. I imagine it would be fascinating for people who are interested or studying these types of species.

One of the highlights was a river cruise ($14 per person), which winds through Fort Lauderdale. There is a guide who tells you whose mansions, yachts etc. you are passing. The name Wayne Huizenga comes up often. He lives here, his brother here, his daughter here. All places were $3,000,000 plus. Also various celebrities live or have rented there while shooting movies (Lee Majors, Sonny and Cher, Barbara Mandrell, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis). Saw huge yacht owned by the owner of the Gap, Victoria's Secret and related businesses. (not Wayne Huizenga) I thought it was a little pricey, but worth doing while you are there. Gives you some idea how the elite live. As it was December, there were X-mas lights up and on in the evenings in the Las Olas complex that were very nice. There was some live music in the evenings and an outdoor bar that was doing a booming business.
