Las Olas: The Jewel of Broward County
When people think of South Florida attractions, Las Olas doesn’t always immediately come to mind. But for those who know, and live, in Broward County, Las Olas is not a hidden gem – it’s the cultural epicenter of Fort Lauderdale, and for good reason. At The Real Estate Shoppe, we work – and live – here in Fort Lauderdale, and we know all about the things that make this street as wonderful as it is!
What is there to do on Las Olas?
Las Olas is to Fort Lauderdale what Fifth Avenue is to New York City – it’s the home of some of the most amazing shops, restaurants, and museums in all of South Florida. For example:
- Did you know that this boulevard has more than 30 al fresco dining options? Because the weather in South Florida is nice nearly year-round, outdoor eating is almost a requirement to fully enjoy the lifestyle. And with such a wide variety of cuisines from all over the world, Las Olas is an epicurean dream come true!
- Did you know that there are three world-class museums on the boulevard? In addition to having a thriving art scene that draws hundreds of people a day, this street has gorgeous, culturally relevant exhibition centers that consistently make the press rounds with their unique exhibits and art galas! And, when combined with the 12 major international art galleries, this boulevard is the art capital of Fort Lauderdale!
- Did you know that there are, periodically, live events that take place on the street? One of the best-known events is the Christmas on Las Olas event, which has been taking place on the boulevard for more than five decades. It’s free to the public, and touted as their “gift to the community.” Featuring live music, a skating rink, a snow mountain, a movie, and six holiday bars, this event is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season. Don’t forget about the Las Olas Art Fair, Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and The Food and Wine Festival, which are both highly anticipated events.
- Did you know that there are more than 75 boutique shops on this beautiful boulevard? Las Olas is the perfect place to go shopping to support local businesses, especially those that have a retail shop. So whether you like unique fashion, quirky bric-a-brac, or something special in furniture, this boulevard has what’s right for you.
