Fort Lauderdale Real Estate - Streets Get a Overdue Name Change

Ft. Lauderale Harbor Shops Will Become Easier to Find

If you are driving down 17th east to Fort Lauderdale Beach will may notcie that the Publixs supermarket which was a great place to stock up for your vacation, buy a few essentials for your cruise, and a place where many locals shopped is no longer there. Have no fear it simply has moved across the street to the Harbor Shops of Fort Lauderdale.

The issue is that it is not simply across the street. If you turn a block early you end up at Village East Condominium where Eric Miller and Associates would be glad to help you purchse a condo. I have heard directions given numerous times. If you are heading east turn, "after the hotel". "at the traffic light". "just after the mexican restaurant", and my favorite being 17th Street is a busy street " look to the right for a fountain down the street". This is all about to change and it's going to get much easier to find Publix, Total Wines, numerous great restaurants including Fort Lauderdale's best hamburger at Gilberts 17th Street Grill which by the way is not on 17th street either.

Simply for now turn right on South East 10th Ave, but soon the street on the south side of 17th Street heading directly into the shops will be called Harbor Shops Drive West. On the north side of 17th Street it will be called Harbor Drive East. I don't understand the east and west part, but I will be very happy to simply say turn at Harbor Shops Drive West to find everything you need just of 17th Street.
