Las Olas Boulevard is a very popular thoroughfare in the Riverfront area of downtown Fort Lauderdale. This gorgeous commercial stretch is roughly one mile long and runs from Andrews Avenue in the Central Business District to A1A and Fort Lauderdale Beach. Las Olas features cool sub-tropical breezeways and courtyards alive with bars, nightclubs, bridal stores, shops, boutiques, 10 major international art galleries, restaurants with al-fresco dining options, 2 world-class museums, and hotels. It is a great, picturesque destination for any time of day, continually visited by tourists from around the world.
In the early 1980s Las Olas went through a major renovation program to enhance property values, and now boasts many upscale property options for any family type. Las Olas Real Estate includes luxury condominiums, townhouses, villas, single-family homes, waterfront lots on the Intracoastal and beach front properties. The community is the most charming and rapidly developing part of Fort Lauderdale. It is home to the historic Stranahan house, hosts monthly art shows and holiday events, and benefits from a nearby IMAX cinema and art house movie theater within walking distance. Fort Lauderdale is often described as the “Venice of America,” due to its intricate canal system. Locals can take the Fort Lauderdale water taxi to Las Olas Boulevard for convenient and scenic access.
Las Olas Boulevard has a long history, developing throughout the years since 1917, molding it into the colorful, cultural tourist hot spot it is today.
