Here are some of the important tips to consider that will make your walking tour simply enjoyable.

Prepare well for your tour
Are you ready to enjoy the outdoors? Spend a few hours planning for the tour. It’s important to figure out the essentials you need to carry and what more to do. Remember you are going on a walking tour of the city, so wear good, durable shoes. This is vital as it will involve lots of walking, and you will never want your shoes wearing out mid way. A bottle of water and a good camera are among other things that you must always carry along with you. Begin your tour early. The legendary and beautiful South Florida winters are simply great for your tour. If you have made your plans for the summer, then you will have to face warm and humid weather conditions. Be ready for this. It will still be a good idea to do so in summers provided you start off in the morning hours. Also, a handy umbrella will just be good because rain storm in the afternoon is the norm here.

Begin with historical tour of Stranahan House
Fort Lauderdale is an iconic city with plenty of historic sites. It would be a perfect idea to start off your tour with the historic Stranahan House, which is situated in the heart of downtown. This charming historic house-cum-museum was built by Frank Stranahan in 1901 on the shore of Middle River. Frank Stranahan is considered to be the founding father of Fort Lauderdale. He along with his wife Ivy Comartie Stranahan lived in this home. Ivy Comartie Stranahan was also the first school teacher of this area. The museum showcases the history of the city and its development into a modern urban center.

Visit the shops at Las Olas Boulevard
 It’s time for you now to move towards north from the Stranahan House and reach the Las Olas Boulevard. This is a famous street situated right in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s entertainment and business district. This is surely the perfect trail for your walking tour. There are many boutiques and shops here. You can spend some time shopping or simple take a note of the shops for shopping some other day. It’s totally your call, but this area shouldn’t be missed out in any case.

Watch boats on mansion-lined New River
If you don’t watch the boats in Fort Lauderdale, then your visit to the city will be incomplete. Fort Lauderdale and Waters are synonymous to each other. You just can’t afford missing out on these. After your brief tour of the Las Olas Boulevard, it’s time for you to do exactly that which all the visitors to this city don’t ever forget. Head towards the beautifully secluded Colee Hammock Park and soak up its intimate setting. This is the ideal place for you to spend some time on the numerous park benches and watch the large and small boats pass by on the mansion-lined New River. This is an amazing sight indeed.

With so much to see and do in the city, a walking tour of Fort Lauderdale is what every visitor will ask for.
