Are you driving to Fort Lauderdale for a vacation or a cruise? With the high costs of air travel and falling gas prices, more and more vacationers choose to drive to their vacation and cruise destinations. Driving ensures that you can take as many people as your car fits, instead of having to pay for every seat for every member of your family on an airplane. Driving adds the convenience of being able to bring all necessary luggage without having to worry about airport weight and item restrictions. Driving also removes the hassle of having to drive to the airport, get through airport security and get to the departure gate on time -- just get in the car, and drive at your own pace!
Florida is a beautiful state. Having the ability to stop anywhere and take in the sights, sounds, scents and experiences of this tropical paradise will surely enhance anyone's vacation experience -- much more than any vacationer would be able to see from the window of an airplane traveling at tens of thousands of feet above the ground.
Perhaps you are flying in and renting a car while in town? South Florida offers an excellent array of world-class shopping, restaurants and entertainment, not to mention gorgeous beaches and world-famous sites like Fort Lauderdale Beach and Miami's South Beach. The roads are excellent -- perfect for a driving adventure while in town for vacation, waiting for a cruise, or after disembarkation.
Unfortunately, parking in Fort Lauderdale can be a hassle. Proximity to the beach along with multiple restaurant and entertainment venues means finding parking can prove quite difficult, especially long-term. Most meters are enforced 24/7, while most parking garages are incontinent and cost-prohibitive for visitors. If driving to go on a cruise out of Port Everglades, there is parking available, but it can get quite expensive for multiple days. Also, most Port Everglades parking garages are not right in the port, so getting from the car to the ship terminal with all your luggage, kids, and documents in tow can be an adventure all on its own.
