About
Situated along a pristine beachfront, Fort Lauderdale’s Las Olas Boulevard is a stretch filled with shops, restaurants, and bars. Pop in and out of the boutiques, take a tango class along the Riverwalk, visit the historic Stranahan House Museum, or have a picnic at Huizenga Plaza. Take your pick from over 30 al fresco dining options as well, like Rocco’s Taco and Tequila Bar, and El Camino Fort Lauderdale. With so much to see, consider exploring the area on a classic bike or segway tour, taking a craft food tour or pedibus pub crawl, or even on a gondola ride. – Tripadvisor

    Nice weekend
    We happened to be in town for 2 days after vacationing in Key West. There was an amazing art festival going on. We enjoy Las Olas but this was a treat. Brought back to Tn. two pieces with us. The restaurant choices, shopping and people watching are alway fun.

    Perfect hangout place.
    When in Fort Lauderdale this is a must place to be. All the good restaurants are here. You don’t even need a car just walk around. Ice cream shops are a must . There’s a little construction going on but nothing to worry about . All top hotels are here . Shops are open till late .

    Great way to spend an afternoon
    We got tired of laying on the beach and decided to hit Las Olas, I am so glad we did. The art galleries are fabulous as well as numerous restaurants to choose from. We found the food was much better in this area than the beach. Check out Riverside hotel, it is the oldest hotel in Ft. Lauderdale

    Great eating, drinking and shopping.
    Definitely place to enjoy a stroll or drinks, food or desserts. Lots of great shops. Street musicians or musicians at the restaurants out front. Definitely enjoyed Rocco’s tacos. Donut from Hollywood donut shop, Guava and cheese! Delicious gelato shops. Jewelry shops, etc. It is worth taking an Uber or other transportation to the spot to enjoy your evening.

    Chilling street
    This is like a street full of nice resturants and hotels . A perfect place to chill with friends and family . Street has boutiques and special shops . I loved breakfast places and ice cream shops .My favourite shop was Pan’E Dolce an Italian bakery with the most delicious coconut ice cream and pastries.

    Comfortable before Cruise
    Arrived late because of flight. Thank goodness TOGO was at front desk. Delivered customer service second to none. Would stay again based on service alone! However, hotel was comfortable and convenient to shopping (2 blocks) and food. Great place to stay before and after a cruise.

Nice Blvd to have a walk with the family, although it has lack of pedestrian sidewalk, Dont go if it’s too late at night with family as there are many bars but overall is one of the nicest area in Ft Lauderdale

Los Olas is the heart of downtown Ft. Lauderdale as it connects the city to the beach. The restaurants and shops are excellent, quaint with something for everyone. We love it here!

Lots of fun shops, art galleries and lovely restaurants……local and many different world flavors. Also, boat tours are available for a slower pace tourist experience.
