The Activities at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea
By Nicholas Jurkowski

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a quaint, nearly British sounding town populated by about 5,000 souls, all of who are employed by the tourist industry in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea (which, coincidentally, is the only industry in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea). As you might imagine, its quaintness is the main weapon the denizens of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea use to ensnare visitors. Sadly, almost all are powerless against its charms, because Lauderdale-by-the-Sea really does have a lot to offer visitors, particularly if they are diving enthusiasts.

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a land of oversized brick sidewalks, quaint streetlamps, and lush landscaping. There are so many things to do (and the town itself is so small), that it is nearly impossible to pick one to highlight. Instead, I feel it is more germane to treat Lauderdale-by-the-Sea as a single destination with many facets.

For starters, there are many long-term lodging opportunities, and Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a popular destination for tourists who stay the winter. This type of stay has many benefits. Most notably, it isn’t cold – but it also allows you to really explore the natural wonders surrounding Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Even if you don’t want to stay the whole winter, the natural sights of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea are a good place to start. The reefs just 100 yards from shore are perfect for either snorkeling or SCUBA diving, and are the reason that Lauderdale-by-the-Sea was named “The Diving Capitol of South Florida” in 1997. The beaches also offer great swimming, sunbathing, and fishing opportunities. Just a little ways from the water’s edge, you will find Pelican Square, which has sitting areas under palms near a very dramatic, award-winning sculpture of pelicans.

In the town itself, you can find the usual assortment of boutique shops and restaurants, but you can also find quite a few small museums specializing in history, art, and the archeology of the region. After you’re done with that, try The Blue Moon Fish Company for dinner – it’s quite good.

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a perfect place to get away when you need a bit of a break. Naturally, a Millenium Limo would only enhance the experience – there’s no better way to get away than in a limo or other luxury vehicle. Happy snorkeling!
