USA, Florida – Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

Published: 14.5.2021
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a city approximately 50 miles north of Miami and is essentially part of the wider Miami conurbation. About 6,000 people live here, but even though it is a small town, it does not mean that it is boring. One of the most important places is Anglin's Square, which is located near the Atlantic coast. This colorful square is constantly bursting with life and it's great to sit on the terrace of one of the restaurants, breathe the fresh air blowing from the ocean and at the same time enjoy some good food. And you really choose here, especially if you like seafood and fish.

Do you like diving? If so, we have a great tip for you, the Shipwreck Snorkel Trail, which is in the area of an artificial coral reef. When diving, you can see lobsters, tarpons, eels, stingrays and various species of beautifully colored fish from close range. Due to the strong currents in the area around the coral reef, it is not recommended that less able swimmers dive and swim here.

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

A very popular area for both snorkeling and oxygen bomb diving is the area around the wreck of the SS Copenhagen. This originally British cargo liner, built in the late 19th century, crashed into a cliff here in 1900 and sank a little over a mile off the coast of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

In 2001, the wreck was even included in the list of national historical monuments of the USA, and in addition to the ship itself, you can see various interesting underwater animals here. The wreck lies about 8 meters below the surface. If you manage to stop at the local town hall or the Gold Coast Scuba dive shop before the dive, you can ask for a foil-sealed wreck map, which is useful during the dive, as it will help you find your way around and see the most interesting parts. - anchor, boiler or crane.

Museum of Discovery and Science

We also highly recommend a visit to the Museum of Discovery and Science, especially if you are traveling with smaller children. The museum itself is located approximately 10 miles from Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and has a host of interactive exhibits that keep you out of the museum. For example, thanks to a state-of-the-art simulator, you can fly in an F-35 fighter, experience a hurricane simulator or go through an indoor exhibition of ecosystems typical of Florida.

In addition, visitors to the museum can perform various scientific experiments, including chemical ones, which include various explosions. You will also see performances with animals or you can go to the huge IMAX, where documentaries about nature, space or dinosaurs in classic format or in 3D play.

Bonnet House   Bonnet House

The Bonnet House Museum and Gardens is also worth a visit. This canary-yellow villa is a place you will immediately notice thanks to its color and flowering gardens. Originally a family house, it has become a monument where visitors can view an interesting collection of family historical objects and take a walk in the local extensive gardens.
