An excellent program for learning about the Ft Lauderdale area. Varied and well planned. For those of us who need to get out of winter weather, the dates of the program are perfect! D. Miller, Syracuse, NY

This program is at a fantastic location in the heart of the city, with many sidewalk cafes bustling with activity and a beautiful Riverwalk nearby. The hotel was charming, tastefully updated, and extra clean. The restaurant was A+.

This program provided a nice introduction to the Fort Lauderdale area. I especially enjoyed the Bonnet House tour, the best home tour I've ever done.

A nice overview of Fort Lauderdale past and present. Excellent hotel location and good selection of restaurants for some meals. Read Patrick Smith's excellent novel, A Land Remembered, for a wonderful depiction of Old Florida and the Everglades.
