Whether you’re excited to get out and enjoy all Riverwalk A&E District Fort Lauderdale has to offer, or want to continue engaging with its activities virtually, July is the perfect month to do either! If you’re a local or a visitor to the area, The District is providing several summertime specials that can help further stretch your dollar. There are so many things to do in Fort Lauderdale in July, so visit The District’s partners in person or online to #DotheDistrict!

Historic Stranahan House is welcoming visitors back on-site for public guided docent tours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout July at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Private tours for families and educational groups can be reserved by emailing or calling 954-524-4736.

Stranahan House will also continue to offer family-friendly, live-streaming virtual experiences throughout the summer via Facebook every Wednesday at 11 a.m.

It’s a summer special at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens! Children aged 17 and under enjoy free admission with an accompanying adult through Sept. 7. The offer includes the never-offered, self-guided house tour app and full access to the grounds. Tours are available Tuesdays through Sundays, 9 a.m.–4 p.m., with adult pricing at $20.

Even though the Broward Center for the Performing Arts is temporarily closed to live performances, you can be a part of the excitement at the BrowardCenter@Home portal, where a variety of programs, performances, and celebrity interviews are uploaded, and accessible at any time.

While NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale works to reopen soon, anyone can visit at any time from the comfort of their home with a virtual tour of its “Happy!” exhibition, or view the permanent collection of over 7,500 artworks with the museum’s newest online search tool. There are also many children’s activities, and a new Creativity Exploration.

“The Art of Tim Forman – Beachscapes” exhibition will be featured on-site at History Fort Lauderdale/New River Inn, July 5–Sept. 27. Free with museum admission, the exhibition explores Forman’s colorful and impressionist coastal works. Forman is the grandson of renowned Davie dairy farmer Hamilton Forman, and grew up in South Florida. General admission for History Fort Lauderdale is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Tickets are available online or on-site at History Fort Lauderdale. Call ahead for hours.

If you’re wishing to immerse yourself in the arts and culture, whether going out or being in the comfort of your home, The District has many options for you in July! Our partners are taking every measure to open safely. Be sure to share your experiences with us at #DoTheDistrict!
