Stretching 3,000 miles (4,800 kilometers) between the United States’ Atlantic and Gulf coasts, the main purpose of the Intracoastal Waterway is to provide a navigable route for ships that doesn’t present many hazards. Sightseeing from the Intracoastal Waterway is a special experience, as it allows you to take in Fort Lauderdale’s resort-like skyline, high-end real estate, yachts and attractions like Hollywood and the Las Olas Riverfront complex in a relaxing manner. For those who enjoy wildlife viewing, it’s not uncommon to also see manatees.
The Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale can also be enjoyed on land, mainly from one of the city’s waterfront restaurants. Kaluz Restaurant is a top choice, known for its high-quality meats and seafood, beach-inspired cocktails and water views. Chart House also serves a delicious meal on the waterway, with fresh seafood dishes like seared Chilean bass, miso-glazed salmon and pine nut-crusted shrimp linguine.
