Fort Lauderdale - do we need to rent a car?
 
We have decided to stay at Pier 66, and since there is a water taxi service right outside the hotel, we are wondering, do we really need to rent a car now?
The 2 places away from the hotel area that we really want to visit are the Galleria Mall and the big Flea Market. Does the water taxi get us near those 2 places? Does anyone know how close? Or are we better off renting a car?

Thank you for your help and suggestions.

It appears, that the water taxi will only get you in the direction of the Galleria, going only as far as Shooters. You will need a car to get you to the Swap Shop, on Sunrise Blvd.

Trip, do you know how close it gets you to the Galleria?

On Sunrise Blvd, there is a draw bridge, and, as you cross it, you can see Shooters on your left...the Galleria, is over the bridge, on the same side..

You know the old saying, you can't get there from here? Think that applies here, but check this out...it may get you where you want to go...to the mall!
