This afternoon, head to Island Water Sports on nearby Deerfield Beach for everything you need to experience beach life. Managed by pro surfer Cheyne Cottrell, you’ll get the best advice for any water-focused excursion. Before leaving, book a surf, skimboard or stand up paddle (SUP) lesson for the next morning. Or, if you’re coming for a weekend, sign up for the store’s free surf or SUP lessons that take place every Saturday morning, open to all ages and levels of experience.
Before you leave Deerfield Beach, stop by JB’s On the Beach and request a table on the patio for an early dinner. The fresh seafood on the menu is only surpassed by the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. The tiki bar is a fun place to have a drink to celebrate your first day in Greater Fort Lauderdale, as well as the fun that is sure to come.
