Las Olas Boulevard turns electric in the evenings with its sizzling night life, live entertainment, and fabulous “see and be seen” gatherings. The main stretch of shopping and dining is about 10 blocks making Las Olas a great stroll for day or night. Las Olas has a unique ambiance. Medians, old fashioned lamp posts, and Black Olive trees with sparkling lights make the boulevard a perfect place to relax; and the palm trees and Mediterranean architecture create a captivating old-world charm.
Since the early 1900’s, when Las Olas was just a dirt road that led to the beach, Las Olas has always been the heart and soul of Fort Lauderdale. Las Olas (Spanish for “the waves”) not only provides a primary connection to the beach, but over the years has become a dining and shopping hub for locals and visitors. Today, the Boulevard is a “must visit destination” with over three dozen bistros, clubs and restaurants, most with indoor and outdoor dining, making Las Olas a food lovers paradise. More than 120 specialty retail shops, world class art galleries, museums, beauty salons, spas, jewelry stores, unique boutiques, international banking, pharmacy, postal services and much more makes Las Olas THE place to Eat Shop and Enjoy Fort Lauderdale.
