Family-friendly Wilton Manors is a diverse community with beautiful homes, good schools, shopping, dining and parks. The area is celebrated by the LGBT community for its inclusiveness. Where it differs from other LGBT-friendly cities is its lack of a “gay neighborhood”; all neighborhoods in this two-square-mile island city are diverse and safe for all. LGBT residents are active community leaders, serving on neighborhood association boards and city boards.
With more than 40 restaurants, lounges and nightclubs, Wilton Drive is the community’s central business artery. Unique stores and services make the area a destination for both visitors and locals. Visit Colohatchee Park for a tranquil afternoon outdoors. A wooden bridge that transports hikers from the city to this placid paradise has been lovingly preserved for nature lovers. Take a walk in Richardson Historic Park and Nature Preserve, or kayak down the scenie Middle River. Wilton Manors’ central location provides convenient access to the beach, the airport, and downtown Fort Lauderdale.
