One of the greatest pleasures of Las Olas Boulevard—where cool sub-tropical breezeways and courtyards are alive with bars, nightclubs, bridal stores, shops, boutiques, art galleries and restaurants—is taking a leisurely stroll to enjoy its many pleasures.
Daytime, it’s not uncommon to see business people meeting for coffee or lunch—or after work for happy hour—while tourists, many waiting to embark on cruise ships or staying at hotels in the area including the elegant Riverside Hotel, enjoy dining and shopping along Las Olas Boulevard—where vehicular traffic is kept at a pedestrian-friendly speed.
The growth of Las Olas Boulevard has been deliberate, with a continued commitment by The Las Olas Company to maintain the uniqueness and distinctive character of the area. Maintaining its quiet charm and casual elegance amongst a burgeoning landscape of modern high rises.
Las Olas Boulevard is the most delightfully
“walkable” street in Fort Lauderdale.
Today’s Las Olas Boulevard is where tradition and inspiration share a distinguished address in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. A pleasant pedestrian-friendly street lined with palms, old-fashioned street lamps and fragrant flora. Charming boutiques and shops filled with silken finery, imported footwear, jewelry delightful crafts, and sweet treats. Galleries exhibiting paintings and sculptures from some of the country’s most skilled artists. Restaurants and gastropubs with savory cuisine, tasty drinks and lively music.
At night, the tree-lined center medium becomes aglow with lights, creating a magical feeling that adds to the allure of Las Olas Boulevard. It’s all here in a wonderfully unique and pleasurably “walkable” gathering place that has become Fort Lauderdale’s #1 destination for shopping, dining, business and hospitality. And for more than 80 years, The Las Olas Company has immersed itself in its history, culture, and commercial success.
