Real Estate Agent with The Keyes Company

Las Olas Boulevard is a popular thoroughfare located in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States. It is home to many of the bars and nightclubs, as well as trendy shops, chic boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and hotels. Las Olas Boulevard has drawn comparisons to many of the most upscale places to shop in the United States. It is referred to as the "Rodeo Drive" of Fort Lauderdale. The name "Las Olas" means "The Waves" in Spanish.

The boulevard was constructed in 1917, when Las Olas was just a dirt road that took people to the Fort Lauderdale Beach.

There has been a radical change in the appearance of Las Olas over the past 10 years as a series of impressive office buildings and condominiums have been constructed.
