Attendees of all ages will find their own brand of fun

Cycle Party in Fort Lauderdale

minutes at five locally owned restaurants,
including appetizers and signature drinks.
The natural wonders of the Everglades
Picture
appeal to attendees of every
age,caption
and the
best way to see this one-of-a-kind habitat
is on an airboat. Sawgrass Recreation
Park, just a 30-minute drive from the
convention center, can accommodate 250
attendees per hour on airboats. Day tours
and "Red Eye" tours are available.
Local history is a way to bring all age
groups together and a popular spot is
Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, the
elegant home of artist Frederic Clay Bartlett,
which was built in 1920 and is listed on
the National Register of Historic Places.
The beachfront building can be rented for
groups of up to 400.

On the Hotel Scene

S

tacy Ritter, president and CEO of
the Greater Fort Lauderdale
Convention & Visitors Bureau,
sums up Fort Lauderdale's allure to meetings
and incentives attendees in one sentence.
"We are a cosmopolitan and vibrant
destination offering the excitement of a big
city, along with value, convenience and an
easily accessible airport located minutes
from downtown shopping and dining and
nightlife, as well as a growing convention
center district."
Whether fun in the sun or after-hours
adventure, there's no shortage of postmeeting activities appealing to every
age group.

Florida Fun
A must-try hipster-inspired activity is a Cycle
Party, seating 15 attendees (10 pedal and five
just sit), and the company supplies a trained
driver. Planners can use the bikes for team
building, a foodie tour or just sightseeing.

Or there's always the opportunity
for traditional cycling in Fort Lauderdale's
downtown waterfront neighborhoods. A
two-hour scenic ride along the Riverwalk
can include a stop at the historic
Stranahan House and a local bakery
or gelato shop. Tours by Riverwalk
Recreation are customizable for groups.
With a little training, all ages can
hop on a Segway and take a tour of
the "Venice of America," which is how
Downtown Fort Lauderdale is often
referred to. During the five-mile "Yacht and
Mansion" tour, they zip by the celebrity
mansions and multimillion-dollar mega
yachts on their Segways, learning a little
history along the way. Other options
include a 10-mile "Full City" tour, night
tours, historical tours, and eco and nature
tours at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park.
Las Olas Boulevard is the place to go
for a restaurant and pub crawl. Appeteasers
USA organizes crawls with stops every 30

"We are a cosmopolitan and vibrant destination
offering the excitement of a big city."
