Description for Fort Lauderdale Riverfront

The Fort Lauderdale Riverfront neighborhood is also commonly referred to as the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk. It is a social and commercial district located in the downtown area between Las Olas Boulevard and Himmarshee Street, running along the north bank of the New River. Riverwalk gets its name from the lovely paved walkway that follows the banks of the river as it curves lazily around Sailboat Bend and through downtown Fort Lauderdale. The main area known as the Riverfront includes a 2-story al-fresco shopping and entertainment venue built in the 90’s that is home to restaurants, nightclubs, and a movie multiplex.

The secondary area of the Riverfront runs along Himmarshee Street and was once known as "Himmarshee Village" when it was originally created in the late 60's-early 70's as a peaceful artsy village within the larger city. Back then you could find a community theater, health food shops, a tea room, leather tooling shops, and more. Populated by several hundred people, the Village residents also enjoyed gathering in the adjoining park along the river.

Today this popular area is comprised of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, live/work lofts and new upscale condos, and residents and visitors alike can take advantage of the park’s weekly farmer’s market and monthly concerts all held along the banks of the river. The Riverfront area is also home to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, a large multi-venue theater complex that hosts scores of award-winning shows and events each year and is the backbone of the emerging Fort Lauderdale cultural scene.
