  • Southwest Fort Lauderdale

    Just west of downtown Fort Lauderdale, you will find a completely different series of neighborhoods of the most interesting residences all along the winding New River even after the river forks into the north and south branches.  Close to downtown, there are gated subdivisions with excellent dockage, many new homes with towering old trees, usually oak.  These are close knit communities and all within a few minute drive into town.

    Farther west along the river, there are large estate homes, many built years ago by residents who just wanted more room to spread out.  One neighborhood is called the Citrus Isles where each isle is named after a citrus fruit. Another is Riverland which features a variety of homes both on and off the water. These are small homes usually but highly valued as a safe harbor in case of bad weather. This is a fascinating area which eventually flows westward to University Drive encompassing lots of great residential subdivisions, golf course, malls, nurseries and commercial enterprises.

    Closer to downtown and south of Broward Blvd., you will find the quaint historical districts, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Riverwalk,  Art and Entertainment District, Museum of Discovery and Sciences, an IMAX theater - so many things to do!  The Riverwalk area is always getting another facelift in the form of new restaurants and artsy businesses and there is an actual brick paved walk along the river from the Performing Arts area right into downtown Fort Lauderdale.  Many residents bought a brick with their name imprinted which make up this romantic path for walking.
