      When you want to shop, enjoy an excellent meal, or have a party night out in Fort Lauderdale, head here. Great, lively place with a little bit of everything. All of the area's action is right here.

      Downtown Fort Lauderdale, especially Las Olas and the Riverwalk areas, are probably your best closest options for big town, downtown entertainment. This is the place to go for your wild night out. The other close option for you is Clematis Street in West Palm Beach.

      This is a really fun game to watch and an even funner game to bet on. Lightning fast balls whiz around the court, winning and losing you money on a dime. And you get to enjoy it all to cheap ... read more

      Another fun indoor activity for one of those unfortunate rainy days is the Jai-Alai fronton down in Dania. Bet on teams winging balls at break neck speeds, drink big beers and eat some arena-sytle junk food!

      Nearby Delray Beach has some of South Florida's best SCUBA diving. There are also good spots off Boca, as well as further south throughout Broward County (Fort Lauderdale and neighboring cities).

      If you end up with a rainy day, the nearby Seminole Hard Rock Casino is a fun indoor way to gamble away your day!

      The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is a great little seaside park and visitor center. They protect a nice stand of coastal hardwood hammock - Florida's version of a tropical rainforest - and the exhibits at the center are a fun resource for learning about the local flora and fauna. There's also a nice array of programs available, including turtle walks in season to see the nesting sea turtles.

    Help Steve Mohle create a great list.
