Thank you for your interest in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea via Visit Florida!
Located just 20 minutes north of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport,our charming beachfront town is the perfect place for a relaxing beach getaway. We hope the information we have provided below will encourage you to grab the family or that special someone and discover our quaint flip flop town.
Being Small is Big to Us
Our family owned hotels are literally on the sand and just a short stroll away from delicious restaurants and charming shops.
You’ll see why our motto is “Relax, you’re here.” You don’t need a car to enjoy our cute beachfront town.
Speaking of our beachfront hotels, get ready to discover the stunning sunrise right from your hotel window. Packed with old Florida charm, we have numerous low rise properties to choose from. The Town’s low-rise hotels – many of which are literally on the sand – are perfect for vacationing with family and friends, while maintaining a safe distance from others. Different from other hotels in South Florida, most hotels in Lauderdale-By-the-Sea are four stories or less with outside walkaways to access rooms, so lobby and elevator interactions can be limited. Many of our beachside hotels feature outdoor or covered lobbies and waiting areas, making it easy to catch the fresh ocean air while checking in or booking a snorkeling or diving excursion with the front desk staff. Additionally, many feature poolside BBQ grills and in-room kitchenettes, and almost all are walking distance from local grocery stores, making it easy to relax in the clean comfort of the hotel.
When it comes to eating there’s something for everyone. With dozens of eateries (mostly privately owned and many have outdoor seating) and speciality sweet shops just steps from the beach, you’ll be sure to discover just the right cuisine, beverage, or treat to satisfy your cravings.
Looking for family friendly activities? From snorkeling or diving right off our white sand beaches, there’s something for everyone!
Distinctive shopping awaits you within a few steps of your hotel, from a variety of Florida-made jewelry and artwork to whimsical treasures that will be the perfect souvenir to remember your vacation. Don’t miss the beautiful marine sculptures in each plaza as you stroll the main boulevard.
