on the route

Fort Lauderdale

Departure

One of the most popular tourist cities in South Florida. More than 560 hotels are located along the coast of Fort Lauderdale, which accommodates more than 10 million visitors a year. The city got its name in honor of Lieutenant Lauderdale, who led one of the three forts during the war with the Indians. The city was founded just over 100 years ago and started to develop in the early 1920s.

Hollywood, Hallandale, Golden Beach

Cities along the shoreline

Hollywood was founded in 1925 by Joseph W. Young.  He considered it the Eastern extension of Hollywood City in California. According to his plan, there should have been luxurious hotels, white sandy beaches, and pristine golf courses. Due to the effects of several hurricanes, the death of the founder, and the Great Depression altered these plans.

Hallandale was founded in the end of the 19th century. Like many other cities in Florida, it owes its appearance to Henry Flagler, founder of the railway and hotel chains, that helped Florida to receive an unprecedented popularity. Henry hired Holland Luther to find a suitable place for the organization of the settlement, somewhere along the path of the railway. Luther found such place and opened there the first retail outlet. For several decades he has been living in the settlement of only 12 families and the city was developing very slowly. Only in 1927 it was established as an urban settlement with 15,000 residents. Now Hallandale has more than 35,000 inhabitants.

Golden Beach is one of the wealthiest cities on the East Coast.  The average price of a home here averages around 2MM.  Some notable residents include Bill Gates, Eric Clapton, and Ricky Martin. The city is most known for the small police department as they have a handful amount of officers patrolling speed on Collins Avenue.  The long-standing joke is that several bicyclists are caught speeding and ticketed for going over the 35 MPH strictly enforced speed limit.

Sunny Isles

Russian Town

Sunny Isles is known for its tall condominiums that stretch along the Northern section of Miami Beach.  Construction of the skyline only began in the early 2000s. Until then, the city was only occupied by small and inexpensive motels and inns.  Unfortunately, the Federal Aviation Administration limits the height of new construction due to the close proximity of the Opa-Locka Executive Airport.  If not for the location of the airport, these buildings would be greater in height compared to some buildings in New York City. The highest building here is Muse (198 meters high).

Sunny Isles Beach

Indian Creek

The Island of Rich and Famous

One of the events of our tour is Indian Creek Island. It is located on The Intracoastal Waterway just south of Oleta Park. This elite island, with 41 private buildings, is home to the 8th highest average income in the United States.  Julio and Enrique Iglesias and other known executives and celebrities are known to own homes on the island, which also comes with an exclusive golf and country club membership.
