Cycling

If you are a bike fan, you will probably enjoy the Cycle Party. Take your friends with you, enjoy the busy streets of Florida from another perspective.  

Would you prefer to bike on a scenic route? We recommend the Hollywood Broadwalk. A short distance away from the hotel in Fort Lauderdale where you are staying, Hollywood offers a pedestrian promenade where you can enjoy a bike ride while overlooking the coast.

  • Stop at one of the cute cafes, drink some fresh-made organic juice
  • Buy an incredible ice cream cone.

It’s the kind of wholesome fun you’re never too old to enjoy: ice cream, sun and bikes. The perfect combination.

In these swamps there are crocodiles and alligators so large they could probably swallow you whole. But that doesn’t scare you away from the Everglades does it? Experience the unique beauty of Florida’s exotic landscape.
