Intracoastal Condos offer the best view for the Winterfest Boat Parade
Whether you’re watching from one of the waterfront condos on the intracoastal, or a spectator on the street the Winterfest Boat Parade in Fort Lauderdale is always an event not to be missed. For years, the Winterfest Boat Parade has been taking place down Fort Lauderdale’s intracoastal. There’s barely an empty balcony on the waterfront condos that overlook the parade. People line the intracoastal to watch the display of yachts of all sizes decorated with ornate holiday lights. It’s like watching the Thanksgiving Day parade but only with lights. If you haven’t witnessed it yet, it certainly must go on your to do list.
Crusing the Intracoastal
Another exciting thing to do in Fort Lauderdale during the holiday season is to take one of the many chartered yachts and cruise past the beautifully decorated intracoastal condos and homes. Here you will see everything from contemporary waterfront homes to huge stately mansions decorated from top to bottom with holiday lights. Palm trees glisten with white and colored bulbs. It’s not uncommon to see Santa Clause and his reindeer sitting on a dock. You will see 150 foot luxury yachts docked and draped with holiday decor. You’ll even might see someone riding a kayak dressed up as Santa. If this doesn’t put you in the spirit of the holiday, nothing will.
Christmas on Las Olas
Las Olas Blvd has its annual Christmas on Las Olas down the street in December as well. Here you’ll see children sliding down a mound of snow. Yes, snow in Florida. Restaurants will be tempting you with the most delicious food they can offer. Crowds line the streets to welcome the season Fort Lauderdale style. Artisans will be displaying their fine crafts. It’s an event where there is something for the youngest member of your family right on up to grandma and grandpa.
