"Famous Street, lots to do!"
I believe that Sunrise blvd is probably THE most popular street in Ft.Lauderdale, especially east of I-95. This big swap shop is on this road, and that area is a little "shady", but once you get a little more east of 95 the area gets very "touristy". there are lots of restaurants as well as the beach! Whenever I head down to ft. laud, I go down sunrise for some of their awesome shops and one-of-a-kind restaurants. It is in a downtown area, so be safe when parking in isolated areas, and try to stay in parking garages where there are more people. Also, don't go walking down any alleys or side streets, common sense, yes. But it gets weird once you get past the tourist sections.
