Fort Lauderdale Food Tours started to conduct tours in this area mainly because of an appetite and craving for fantastic dining experiences that echo the spirit and culture of Fort Lauderdale. Miss I. and I were intrigued enough to trek the distance to get there in order to learn and taste something new.

The city of Fort Lauderdale is right next to the Atlantic Ocean and has 7 miles of pristine beaches. This city is named after a series of forts built during the Second Seminole War. The forts took their name from Major William Lauderdale and his brother, Lieutenant Colonel James Lauderdale.

Las Olas

It is the Intracoastal Waterway – stretching south to Miami – and the waterfront homes which border it, that have earned Fort Lauderdale its status as the “Venice of America.” It is about an hour’s drive from Miami and well worth the trip.

The tour takes place mostly in Las Olas Boulevard, a picturesque and tree-lined street that is both pretty and cozy. It offers an insight into the art, history and food of this unique enclave in South Florida.

 We got to visit bakeries, learn about wine and cheese pairings, see local art, taste amazing olive oils and vinegars and sample calamari, over-stuffed Italian inspired sandwiches and a decadent Asian dessert, among other things.
