Park and Ocean formerly BG Coco Cafe Outdoor Center, is a short walk from beachside shops and condominiums, this park is an oasis of tropical hammocks-a gift from Hugh Taylor Birch to Florida’s posterity. His former estate preserves four distinct natural communities, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. Visitors can rent a canoe and paddle along a mile-long freshwater lagoon or fish from the seawall. There are a wide variety of activities you can do at the park. Including: kayaks, canoes, jet skis, segways, SUP paddleboards and guided tours. Nature lovers can hike along two short trails and learn about local plants and wildlife while bicyclists and skaters glide along the paved park road. Visitors can access the beach via the pedestrian tunnel under A1A. Picnic areas overlook the channel; pavilions with water and electricity are available for rental.

Growing up in Miami, I never really had an opinion on Fort Lauderdale. To me, it was a family beach day type place, sleepy and nothing more. There were pockets of a bygone era here and there, some Art Deco theaters and historical houses, but that was it. Recently, I came to one big fat realization: Miami and Fort Lauderdale are more similar than we might think. First, they're two cities whose identity has been orchestrated by their proximity to sand and their abundance of internationally-financed (and materialistically developed) string of luxury hotels. But #FTL has something Miami is just starting to wake up to: an understanding that it's the local people and their unique personalities that help shake things up and shape places into what they're meant to be. Our latest @culturecrusaders adventure to Fort Lauderdale opened my eyes to a world of micro breweries, epic coffee spots, muraled walls, kind people, and some of the most eclectic eats around. Our breath was taken away even my luscious parks like Hugh Taylor Birch State Park pictured above. Check out our full breakdown of our neighboring city in @prismcreative.group's bio and make sure to explore the 954 for yourself. Believe me, you're in for a serious treat ✌️pc: @fujifilmgirl#culturecrusaders#fortlauderdale#floridalife
