Flowers and chocolates don’t last forever, but the memories you make with your special someone sure do. If you like long walks on the beach, you’ll love flying in a helicopter above the ocean, floating in a gondola down the New River, or indulging in diverse dishes from a few staple restaurants along Las Olas Boulevard. With tours for everyone under the sun, Greater Fort Lauderdale is the ideal destination for your next night (or day) out.
Romantic Tours For Couples In Greater Fort Lauderdale
Explore a historic home
Experience the enchanting Bonnet House Museum & Gardens alongside your significant other during either a self-guided or guided tour. The historic home was built in the 1920s by a Chicago artist named Frederic Clay Bartlett. Today, the architecturally stunning estate set on 35 acres of waterfront property is still dedicated to the arts, displaying paintings inside the home as an ode to the former owner.
See the city from above
Gain a new perspective with your partner during a flight above the city with Keen Fly. Your captain will take you skyhigh during this helicopter tour with views of downtown Fort Lauderdale on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Unforgettable flight add-ons can also include GoPro footage, a doors-off experience, professional photos, and evening tours.
Ride along the Intracoastal
Fort Lauderdale is the “Venice of America,” so it’s only appropriate for gondolas to travel along the waterways. Book a private boat for two through Riverfront Gondola Tours and see the city from the canals during a 1.5-hour-long excursion. You’ll meet your captain along Las Olas Boulevard right outside of Casa Sensei, where you can even place a to-go order directly from the restaurant in advance and dine on fresh sushi between sips of sake while on board.
Taste top-rated restaurants
Want someone else to organize your culinary experiences while you're in town? Book one of the Fort Lauderdale Foodie Tours and you’ll get a sampling of dishes from some of the top local restaurants. Take a three-hour guided stroll down Las Olas Boulevard or Fort Lauderdale Beach and bond over food with a small group. You’ll pop into eateries serving a variety of cuisines — from Cuban, to Mexican, to Argentinian — which you’ll have the opportunity to taste while learning about the history of each establishment and even getting to meet some of the chefs along the way.
Cycle through the city
There are plenty of ways to get around in Fort Lauderdale, whether it’s by boat, car, segway, foot — or even electric bike. During a Gocycle Bike Tour, take in the sights as you pedal side by side with your significant other on e-bikes that can go as fast as 20 miles per hour. Your guide will lead you along Fort Lauderdale beach, Las Olas Boulevard, or the New River, and by the end, you’re bound to have learned something you didn’t know about the city.
You can book your e-bikes by calling Beach Ventures at 954-530-9844.
Paddle under the moonlight
What could be more romantic than spending time with your special someone under the light of a full moon? How about adding in a tranquil paddle around Deerfield Island during a Full Moon Paddleboard Tour? Take in the sights and sounds of South Florida at night as an experienced guide from Island Water Sports leads you on this 1.5-hour journey.
Call it “love at first sip”
Sistrunk Marketplace is for (spirits) lovers. Set up a private Distillery Tour at Shady Distillery, located inside the food hall, and you’ll see behind-the-scenes how Shady’s craft vodka and rum are made. At the end of the experience, look forward to sipping two signature Shady cocktails while snacking on a few lite bites.
You can book a private tour by calling Shady Distillery at 954-869-4170.
