Las Olas Isles
Located between Sunrise Key Boulevard to the North, the Intracoastal Waterway to the East, SE 7th St to the South, and Victoria Park Road to the West, this neighborhood is actually surrounded by water on all sides, with these boarders lying on the other side of that water.
Las Olas is one of Fort Lauderdale’s premier neighborhoods. Actually, it’s a few neighborhoods located in the same area. Las Olas Boulevard goes from the Beach in the East all the way to downtown in the West, and is the main road to get into this residential area. Once you get west of the main waterway, Las Olas Boulevard turns into Fort Lauderdale’s premier arts and entertainment area with a large variety of shops and restaurants providing dynamic daytime and nighttime activities, in addition to the Art Museum, the Museum of Science and Discovery and the Performing Arts Theater located in the riverfront area. For many people this is a top spot for a night out on the town Fort Lauderdale style.
For real estate Las Olas is beloved by locals and out of town owners alike. The area has a limited number of condos and townhomes on some select Isles, however the majority of the properties in this over 1,000 home area, are expensive single family homes located on deep water canals, many of which can only be described as mansions. Most of the homes are located on what is referred to as “finger Isles” which basically are rows of streets that are surrounded by water on three or four sides making a peninsula or an island with a small bridge. The upscale lifestyle that this neighborhood brings leads many to feel its Fort Lauderdale’s best neighborhood with stunning architecture, impressive landscaping, and overwhelming rows of mega yachts and boats on the waterways, not to mention its proximity to the beach, the night life, airport and Fort Lauderdale’s down town.
So while the debate on what is Fort Lauderdale’s best neighborhood will never be truly settled, for many Las Olas has exactly what they are looking for. It’s a great upscale location ideal for boaters, beachgoers, people seeking fine dining and shopping, and those looking to be near the downtown.
