Well, it all began because we couldn’t get into our Airbnb until 3 pm. So, after a wonderful 10 day cruise with Princess, we decided to take the Intracoastal Water Taxi to Hollywood Beach and waste a few hours at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. Once onboard, we were told that we could ride until 10:00 pm. BINGO, lets pull up a seat and start charting our course.
The Intracoastal Waterway is over 3,000 miles long, but we weren’t going to cover it all in one day. After a round trip back to the Cruise Terminal, we headed north to check out the real estate on the waters edge. We had a great time seeing so many beautiful yachts that are arriving in Ft. Lauderdale for the winter. We passed by many beautiful homes on our journey and we saw a large variety of iguanas, sea birds and three manatees. It was well worth the $28 pp fee to spend the day on the water enjoying nature and exploring a new part of Florida.
Once the journey was complete, we rounded out the afternoon with a wonderful meal at Billy’s Stone Crab Restaurant and Market before checking into our cute little Airbnb in Hollywood.
