Leave your Ft. Lauderdale car rental behind and take a pleasant walk along Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale, located in the heart of the city's downtown. Along with offering a stunning waterfront view, the red-brick walkway will take you past lush greenery and quaint boutiques perfect for window shopping. If you feel like splurging, stop at one of the vendors and buy the kids some ice cream or popcorn. Or, pack a picnic in advance and lay out a blanket for a relaxing afternoon meal in the shade.
