Stranahan House is the home of Fort Lauderdale pioneers Frank and Ivy Stranahan. Built in 1901 as a trading post and converted into a residence for the Stranahans in 1906, the house is the oldest surviving structure in Broward County. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and today operates as a historic house museum. The House is open for guided tours at 1, 2, and 3 p.m. daily, and hosts special events throughout the year.
One of the most unique attractions within Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is its waterways. Over 300 miles of navigable boating avenues snake through this glamorous city and the county of over a million; by boat is a fascinating way to see the city and get a true feel of the "Venice of America" – and why it's called this. Whether for sightseeing or as a mode of daily transportation, the Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi is the trolley in the water, and it's probably the best way to see it all.
Don't let the word taxi fool you; this is more than that. The captain and crew are a wealth of information and inform their riders with recommendations of where to dine, where to grab a drink and where to be entertained. In fact, many locals use the Water Taxi to hop from restaurant to restaurant, club to bar, all safely and easily. And, of course, to impress their out-of-town guests.
