Las Olas Boulevard is the place to be on any day of the week but don’t you think it’s particularly special on Sundays? Maybe it’s because everything is more leisurely, but even so, there are lots of decisions to make.
Shall we have breakfast and then a later lunch? Favorite breakfast places are the Floridian, Gran Forno, Pronto, La Bonne Crepe, East End Eats and Indigo. Which to choose? Or maybe brunch? If so, you’ve plenty to choose from – Tundra, YOLO, Big City Tavern, Indigo at the Riverside …
And what’s the best time to go to the Las Olas Market? Early when they open at 9am or just before the vendors start to leave at 2pm? (I think it’s best to go early before everything is sold out!)
There’s nothing like watching the water traffic on the New River on Sundays. So peaceful. The best spots are Colee Hammock Park, the Laura Ward Plaza, the little park where the water taxi stops or the grounds of the Strahahan House. And speaking of the house, are you going to one of their afternoon tours or waiting until the Ghost River Tour this evening. (Both!)
There’s so much to do on Sundays afternoons in the area. Take a trip down the New River on the water taxi, the Carrie B or the Jungle Queen. Stroll along the Riverwalk to the Museum of Discovery and Science. See wonderful artworks at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale (and while you’re there, enjoy a treat from their café). Talking about treats …
It’s Sunday. You’re on Las Olas. Calories don’t count on Sundays on Las Olas. It’s a rule. So enjoy some tasty treats. Another rule (I’m good at inventing rules) is that you can’t come to Las Olas and not have treats from Kilwins. So there. There are many other places to find candy, yogurt treats, cakes, pastries and delicious drinks, of course.
Then there’s another famed Las Olas activity – shopping! From bridal wear to bargains, from gifts to glamour, from fashion to food, the boulevard is a fabulous place to shop.
And now, it’s time to start thinking about dinner already. Whatever you fancy for dinner tonight, I’ll be willing to bet that you’ll find it on Las Olas. Pizza or posh, it’s up to you. As for partying, this evening head to Mangos, Rocco’s Tacos, YOLO or Vibe – all are open until the early hours.
