Most fans will fly into Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) for the Cruzin Classic. Once on the ground, there are several ways to get to the hotel.

  • RIDE SHARING – Uber and Lyft are very prevalent and popular in South Florida.
  • TAXI – Taxis can be found just outside of each terminal. The short ride to the hotel will cost you approximately $15.
  • RENTAL CAR – Almost all major car rental companies are present at FLL. There is a Rental Car Center in the center of the airport. Signs are posted on how to get there, but easiest access is walking from Terminal 1. NOTE: Please remember that when you rent a car and stay at the Hilton (Official Hotel) that there are daily parking fees of $25.

VISIT LAUDERDALE

It’s always a good time to be in Greater Fort Lauderdale. And the reasons are as abundant as the sun and palm trees. There are more than 300 sunshine-y days a year in this South Florida destination, which gives visitors and locals plenty of opportunity to enjoy nature, boating, diverse neighborhoods, events, attractions, and unique only-here specialness that helps define Greater Fort Lauderdale.

It’s easy to spend a day at the beach, with soft sands, beachfront promenades as well as beachfront shopping and dining. With comfortable year-round temperatures, the Atlantic Ocean is always inviting to SCUBA divers, snorkelers, stand-up paddleboarders, Jet-Skiers, as well as families.

There are also thrills back on land, but it’s not necessarily “dry.” You can get a taste of the craft breweries along the Greater Fort Lauderdale Ale Trail. Enjoy the impressive “wine and dine” scene — a mix of worldly flavors, local favorites and chef-centric genius. The destination also boasts luxury hotels, museums, nightlife, shopping, casinos and family-friendly fun from the Everglades to the arts scene. Days out and about. Nights out on the town. Explore the local way of life that welcomes one and all.
