Dania Beach, Florida: Watch Giant Boats

The closest thing to being on a giant cruise ship is being right next to a giant cruise ship as they squeeze in and out of the narrow channel at Port Everglades. A convenient jetty allows you to sit or stand while you wave.

There goes a big ship.

Watch Giant Boats, Dania Beach, FL

We were there tonight and it costs $6 per vehicle to get into the State Park that it is in. But it is a great place and more than worth it. People can get the cruise ship departure times from the Port of Everglades website.
