In Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, the town's motto says it all: "Relax … you're here." Whether you want to kick back on the beach, by the pool, or with a tropical drink in hand, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea vacation rentals are the perfect place to unwind.
The warm weather attracts visitors to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea year-round. Temperatures climb to 90 degrees in the summer months and stay in the low 70s throughout the winter months when the population swells to more than 10,000 people. Late spring to early fall brings the most rain to the area, and the town can be affected by the Atlantic hurricane season, which stretches from June through November. Visitors should book Lauderdale-by-the-Sea vacation rentals far in advance for spring trips, since good weather, low rainfall, and school breaks tend to attract the largest number of visitors during the spring.
Just 15 miles north of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is an easy flight from most cities around the U.S. In town, the Pelican Hopper offers free transportation to attractions and shopping centers around the area, and visitors can also pay to use the Fort Lauderdale bus system to reach destinations further afield. To explore some of the best attractions along the Atlantic Coast, visitors will find renting a car to be the most convenient way to get around.
Things to do
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is known as Florida's diving capital, and the best diving spots are located within swimming distance of the shore. Interested parties can rent equipment and take scuba diving classes at Deep Blue Divers or Gold Coast Scuba, but most diving enthusiasts can reach the area's best reefs and shipwrecks within a 10-minute swim, which means most don't even need to charter a boat. If you head underwater, don't miss the SS Copenhagen, a British steamship that wrecked offshore over 100 years ago. The Lauderdale-by-the-Sea town hall has dive maps available for visitors. If you'd rather relax by the sea, the town's public beach offers plenty of sand, sun, and ocean breeze.
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea has plenty of Old Florida charm, and you can take it all in with a stroll along the town's main drag, Commercial Boulevard. Here you'll find souvenir shops, local boutiques, and cigar shops sandwiched in between juice bars and burger joints. If you need scuba, snorkeling, or diving gear, you'll find it in a number of shops right in the center of town.
The town also has plenty of family-oriented activities for children, such as the Bluefoot Pirate Adventures and the Everglades Day Safari. There are also a number of playgrounds and parks for children to run around in not too far from the beach, such as Friedt Family Park and Washingtonia Park. Other popular family-friendly attractions include the Loxahatchee Everglades Tours, Butterfly World, and the Everglades Holiday Park.
When only a cool tropical drink on the beach will do, head straight to the Bamboo Beach Club and Tiki Bar. Right on the beach, this spot pours mai tais, rum runners, and cosmopolitans and serves highly-rated bar snacks like mahi mahi fingers, grouper bites, and conch fritters.
When all you need is live music, a full bar, and a relaxed vibe, the 4:30 Boardroom is a popular late night spot. For an impressive cigar selection, the big game on the big screen, and a noteworthy wine list, make the trip to Mancave Cigar Lounge, just south of town.
Whether you're looking for underwater adventure or seaside fun, you'll find it here. Stay in your choice of beachfront Lauderdale-by-the-Sea vacation rentals, and enjoy a stay in the Sunshine State.
