Weekends in Florida are filled with sandy beaches, cocktails, and seafood. But a day in the Fort Lauderdale area means getting together for coffee, vintage shopping, and photo shoots. The Yard at Wilton Manors is a village-like shopping venue with boutiques, restaurants, and a vintage store - all in a setting like you've never seen before. 

This bohemian village is colorful and well known in the LGBTQ community. A place for creators and coffeepreneurs seeking to escape the urban vibe of the city. The Yard is formerly known as Eucalyptus Gardens and has become the place to brunch, relax and shop during the weekends.

The artsy walkway and the painted trees provide a hippie atmosphere inviting guests to entertain and dine. 

One of the most popular spots to visit is The Alchemist, La Mexicana and The Wander Shop. The Alchemist specializes in in-house brewed coffee and gluten-free treats. This cafe has a loyal community and freelancers frequent this place.

The Wander Shop is a lifestyle boutique located inside a vintage airstream that sells modern-chic clothing inspired in Florida. 

If you want great Mexican food you should visit La Mexicana Tapas and try their delicious tacos with ice-cold margaritas.

A day trip at this bohemian oasis will inspire you and give you new creative ideas. In addition, The Yard has a farmer's market and a warehouse with many vintage shops. You will find quirky items and memorabilia that you never imagined. At the end of the walkway, there are many art murals that make the perfect backdrop for your Instagram.

There are plenty of pop-up shops occurring each month and the best part is that is dog-friendly. So, you're welcome to bring Fido and spend a day at The Yard.
