Pre and Post Cruising is a Thing.

Pre and Post Cruise Shopping with Ina Owner of Coast Boutique.

On one of my weekly Cruise Shop Save LIVE shows my good friend Ina of more than 25 years joined me.

We discuss the massive rise in Pre and Post Cruise Guests visiting Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida. Fondly known by the locals as LBTS.

Coast Boutique, Lauderdale by the Sea (LBTS) here is the link Coast Boutique – Unique and Interesting Gifts, Jewelry, Apparel, Art and Keepsakes ( 9 miles from Ft Lauderdale Cruise Port and 36 miles from the Port of Miami.

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is a small beachfront town on Florida’s east coast just north of Fort Lauderdale.

Ina has owned and operated Coast Boutique for over 7 years.   She has built a successful business with a vast Cruise guest following. Selling perfectly curated gifts, artwork and luxury Jewelry.   Once you arrive in this coastal community of Lauderdale by the Sea with 6,000 residents.  It’s a short stroll to just about anywhere.  The beach. Anglin’s Fishing Pier, the eateries featuring a variety of cuisines.  Cute shops lining Commercial Boulevard from Anglin’s Square, the town’s quaint oceanfront district, to the Intracoastal.

There’s plenty to do:

Walk along the Town’s Blue Wave beaches.  Fish off the pier.  Fo paddle boarding.  Dive or snorkel. Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is Florida’s Beach Diving Capital. Lauderdale-By-The-Sea does not allow tall buildings along its beach and in town.  That’s why the community has maintained its Old Florida charm.  Reminiscent of Florida in the 1950s. Definitely worth a few nights to stay pre or post-cruise.
