Planning on visiting W Fort Lauderdale?
We can’t wait to welcome you! Just know that you may be joining us during a very exciting time, as Fort Lauderdale is proud to the host the 2013 Lauderdale Air Show. The beach will be transformed into prime sea-side viewing as a diverse line up of aircraft demonstrations, low altitude flyovers, parachute team jumps and aerobatic performances soar over the oceanfront.
The Show Center is located from Sunrise Blvd to NE 14th Court on A1A and on the adjacent beach (about half a mile north of our Hotel), on Saturday, April 20th and Sunday, April 21st. The aerial acts are scheduled from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on both Saturday and Sunday.
Organizers anticipate large crowds. A portion of the beach is designated for the Air Show (the Show Center) and will be reserved for ticket holders. But you’ll still be able to have fun in the sun, as a large portion of the public beach will remain open to the public; including the beach directly in front of W Fort Lauderdale.
The Fort Lauderdale Police Department advises that motorists will encounter a high volume of traffic and long delays may be expected on all barrier island roadways from Friday – Sunday. Several road closures will be effect:
- Starting Tuesday, April 16th: A1A will be closed from NE 14th Court to E. Sunrise Blvd.
- Starting Friday, April 19th: A1A will be closed from Vistamar to NE 14th Court, and Sunrise Blvd. will be closed from Sunrise Lane east to A1A
Las Olas Boulevard and 17th Street Causeway are favorable alternatives to gain access to A1A and W Fort Lauderdale. All roads are expected to be re-opened by Monday, April 22nd.
