Rethinking Florida

Open your heart to Las Olas!

Las Olas Boulevard, the heart and soul of Fort Lauderdale, challenges everyone’s definition of main street America. This charming street is resplendent with the all the trappings of Cannes or Venice. Whether looking for a quick bite or a fine dining experience, you will find engaging and inviting spots along the palm tree-lined boulevard and side streets. The finest al fresco restaurants, bistros, gastropubs, local art galleries, world-class museums, and a never-ending nightlife make Las Olas special. I found the destination truly charming - a “European Riviera” twist on everything the Sunshine State has to offer. 

Right in the center of all of the activity, the Hyatt Centric Las Olas beckons to all who are weary to come, relax, and enjoy. From the Laurent-Perrier Champagne vending machine in the lobby to the lavish and decadent guest-room-turned-speakeasy Room Nine01, this well appointed, nautical themed hotel is full of surprises, each one better than the last.

The best way to see any city is from the water, and with the Intercoastal Waterway, New River, and the Atlantic Ocean all meeting in Las Olas, there is always magic in the air and lots of fun in and around the water. Whether kayaking or snaking along the waterways in an electric gondola, your adventures will certainly reveal some of Southern Florida’s most prestigious homes and yachts.

Eclectic street art, graffiti, public installations, and urban murals help to define the culturally rich Las Olas neighborhood. The impressive NSU Art Museum of South Florida is balanced nicely against FAT Village Art District and its curious rebellion of artists that are helping to define this most advantageous of Florida neighborhoods.

Las Olas Boulevard thrives in its richness and diverse character, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, it has everything that you need for a perfect lover's get away.
