The saying goes that April showers bring May flowers, but at The District, in the heart of (Hello) Sunny Fort Lauderdale, we bloom with the colors of art, music, dance and history all month long! In April, you can enjoy a delightful laugh with Jay Leno, listen to amazing jazz at the Bonnet House, enjoy a great glass of rosé at the NSU Art Museum or take in memorable lectures at both Stranahan House and Historical Society. Want to sample a full day in The District? Then click here for our hour-by-hour itinerary that will offer a full day of exploration in Fort Lauderdale. If you are looking to indulge in an overnight night stay, then you may want to plan a Girlfriends & Glamour Getaway at the charming Riverside Hotel, located in the heart of Downtown. By the way, you don’t have to be a woman to book the package - men are more than welcome to join in the fun. Welcome to April! Any way you slice it, this month is filled with new experiences specially curated with you in mind!
