The New River: The Venice of America
The New River in Fort Lauderdale originates in the Everglades, offering one of the most unique river environments in the country. Fort Lauderdale itself is nicknamed the Venice of America for its intricate and expansive waterways that stretch across the city. As beautiful homes dot the river’s coast, it is easy to see why the nickname was inspired by the beautiful Italian metropolis.
Fort Lauderdale is home to many luxurious homes of the rich and the famous. On Millionaire’s Row, you’ll get an up-close look at their multi-million dollar mansions, Mega Yachts, and beautiful landscaping. Those who enjoy architecture and celebrity life are sure to have an amazing time.
The 500-passenger ship offers plenty of great amenities as well including a snack bar filled with chips, water, sodas, liquor, wine, coffee, and more to keep you satisfied. But, if you are hungry for more, head to the dining room during one of the dinner cruises to partake in a dinner of mouthwatering bbq ribs, chicken, and shrimp.
No matter which of the wonderful cruises you embark upon, the Jungle Queen riverboat sightseeing cruise is definitely a fantastic activity to add to any Fort Lauderdale getaway.
