Default AmeriSuites Location

I understand that the AmeriSuites on 10th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale is within walking distance of the Southport Shopping Center. Can anyone tell me how long of a walk is it and if it is in a neighborhood where an elderly couple would feel safe walking after dark. Thanks in advance for your input.

You really can walk out the hotel door, and cross the adjacent side street, to the new shopping area. The supermarket,[Publix] that was at Southport has moved to this new area. There are lots of nice stores, and places to eat there as well...Hope this has helped:) Have a great cruise!

It's about 300 yards to the shopping center and it is perfectly safe to walk around. A great area for a one or two night pre or post cruise stay.

Take care,
Mike

If you'd feel safer getting a ride over there, speak with the front desk. My elderly in-laws stayed there and the clerk was kind enough to offer them transportation both ways to a local restaurant (mom was disabled and couldn't walk far). I thought it was very nice of the hotel to do this (for free!). There is a lot of traffic in that area and crossing the street can be a little stressful if you can't move fast enough to get out of the way!
