Places to Propose in Fort Lauderdale
Boasting a year-round average temperature of 77 degrees and 3,000 hours of annual sunshine, Fort Lauderdale is perfect for a tropical getaway…. without going too far from home.
Take advantage of the area’s sunny beaches and open spaces and plan an unforgettable romantic proposal. Here are a few of the best places to propose in Fort Lauderdale.
Reserve a quiet table at Casa d’Angelo Ristorante, a sophisticated Italian restaurant with a fresh seasonal menu and an extensive wine list, and propose on a moonlit walk through the canals after dinner. Or opt for the cozy patio at Cafe de Paris for a traditional French meal, and ask the pianist to play your song as you present her with a diamond engagement ring.
Out on the Water
Since Fort Lauderdale has no shortage of waterfront property, heading out on a boat gives you access to some of the best places to propose in the area. Rent kayaks or canoes at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a 180-acre space on a barrier island, and take a leisurely tour of the coastal dune lakes. Pack a picnic and pop the question over lunch on the beach.
Or explore Fort Lauderdale’s reputation as the “Venice of America” and take the Jungle Queen Riverboat tour through some of the area’s 300 navigable waterways. Find a quiet moment alone overlooking the water to ask her to marry you.
Or for the true Venetian-inspired experience, book a private tour with the Las Olas Gondola for your romantic proposal. The two of you will enjoy a slow cruise through the canals, and it includes a rose and a personalized engagement message in a bottle to present at just the right moment.
Just south of Fort Lauderdale lies Hollywood Beach. Walk along the 2.5-mile 1920s boardwalk, and enjoy a seafood dinner at one of the many restaurants along the water. Catch a free outdoor concert or movie, and propose with a diamond engagement ring under the stars.
