When exploring the area that surrounds The Link Hotel on Sunrise, you never know what you might find. Our downtown Fort Lauderdale hotel is conveniently located near countless activities and attractions. Relax and soak in the sunshine on a nearby beach, or spend time exploring the exhibits at a local museum. One of the newest and most popular spots to wander is the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk, which is filled with everything from restaurants to parks.
A Checklist of Things You’ll Find on the Riverwalk
Located off the famous Las Olas Bouelvard, the Fort Lauderdale riverwalk is a linear public park found along the New River. This area is the perfect oasis in the middle of the bustling city. There is no shortage of memorable attractions to check out, so give yourself plenty of time to explore.
Given its waterfront location, the restaurants found on the riverwalk not only feature delicious menus but breathtaking views as well. The Boathouse at the Riverside features New American cuisine with a Mediterranean touch. Another great option is The Historic Downtowner, known for live music and happy hour specials.
One of the biggest attractions along this corridor is the 10 parks found along the path. These spots include:
- Esplanade Park, which is home to numerous social, cultural, and food events
- Smoker Park, a great spot to workout or play a game of chess
- Cooley’s Landing Park, which marks the beginning of the riverwalk
- Huizenga Plaza, the location of several annual festivals and events
In addition to relaxing at a park or grabbing a bite to eat, this area is also filled with a wide range of recreational activities. Reserve your spot on a tour with Riverwalk Activities. This local service also offers paddleboard, kayak, and bike rentals if you prefer to captain your own adventure.
A fun way to explore is on the water trolley, which has several stops along the riverwalk. The free trolley operates daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
