Things To Do & See in April and May

As our South Florida weather starts to heat up, so too are the number of things to see and do around Fort Lauderdale. The Tortuga Music Festival entertained thousands of people on the beach during the April 7th weekend. Now, local event-goers are getting their tastebuds ready for the ever-popular Las Olas Wine and Food Festival on April 29th. Here, you’ll have a chance to sample dishes from some of the best restaurants Fort Lauderdale has to offer and help out a great charity.

If you like arts and culture, The Broward Center for the Performing Arts has a full schedule for April and May as does its sister venue, the Parker Playhouse. The Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is just minutes away by foot by bicycle. Here you can rent a canoe and explore fresh-water lagoons or hike two short trails and learn about local plants and wildlife. And remember, there are plenty of shopping and fine dining options just minutes away by car or trolley at the famed Las Olas Boulevard or Galleria Mall.
