Los Prados exudes peace and comfort, which is no small feat with so many activities and features on hand. The amenities and services found at our stylish apartments for rent near Fort Lauderdale set residents and ease, providing a welcoming space for leisure, errands, socialization, and domestic life. Each one bedroom and two bedroom floor plan makes clever use of attractive decor, thoughtful layouts, on-trend features, and engaging community facilities and services. Beyond the community itself, the city of Plantation and greater Fort Lauderdale await. World-class dining, shopping, culture, and entertainment are synonymous with the southern Florida living experience. So if the question is why live near Fort Lauderdale, here’s your answer.


Head to the nearest shopping centers for an afternoon of retail therapy in Plantation. Broward Mall on Broward Boulevard is a traditional, closed-air mall with shops like H&M, Bath & Body Works, and Dillard’s, plus a Regal movie complex, while Tower Shops on University Drive in nearby Davie offer a variety of popular merchants, such as Old Navy, Michaels, Costco, and Trader Joe’s. Further into Fort Lauderdale, Galleria Fort Lauderdale borders the beach with upscale boutiques and department stores.


With close proximity to the shoreline, beach days are an inevitable pleasure for Plantation residents. Fort Lauderdale Beach, Sebastian Street Beach, and Las Olas Beach are all half an hour away from Los Prados, so the best approach is to keep beach essentials on hand for any downtime you can manage. Make a day of it, sunning on the sand, perusing the nearby shops, and having dinner at one of the many restaurants that line the coast. Perhaps, a day spent hiking and picnicking in the beauty of the Pine Island Ridge Natural Area is another option for outdoor enjoyment?


Speaking of dinner, Plantation dining is a great way to learn about the area. The city has New American-style cuisine, like the dishes from Kaluz and J. Alexander’s, as well as Latin cuisine, like Ole Ole Mexican Grill and Cantina or Bien Chido Authentic Mexican Taqueria. Even Italian-inspired cuisine like that from Brio Italian Grille and Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana are on the menu.


For simple activities to pass the time around the area, consider a round of golf at Jacaranda Golf Club or a movie at the Swap Shop & Thunderbird Drive-in Theater. Thrill seekers will love the simulated flight experience at iFLY Fort Lauderdale, and sports enthusiasts can enjoy a Florida Panthers hockey game at the FLA Live Arena. Of course, a drive to Fort Lauderdale provides a wealth of museums, from the Museum of Discovery and Science to the NSU Art Museum.

Obviously, this is only a short list of the best way to enjoy Plantation, and ultimately, Fort Lauderdale, FL, but it must be reiterated that the best headquarters to come home after a day of exploration are our apartments for rent near Fort Lauderdale. Incredible retail, cuisine, culture, and recreation are fine ways to unwind, but there’s nothing quite like coming home to the luxe amenities, services, and convenience of Los Prados Apartment Homes.
