With its ideal central location, world-class shopping, sports and entertainment venues, incredible restaurants and pleasant neighborhoods, Sunrise is a premier city within the communities that surround Fort Lauderdale. Aptly named for what Florida is best known for, Sunrise is a magnet for a well-rounded life this most southern state offers.
See & Do
Sunrise is the home to the BB&T Center, formerly known named the BankAtlantic Center, and is primarily known for the Florida Panthers hockey games, concerts and political rallys. Located next to the very popular Sawgrass Mills Mall, the BB&T Center is easily accessible by I-595 and and Sawgrass Expressway, so getting to your favorite event is a breeze.
Don't think that the lovely homes and hotels and endless shopping options means there is no nightlife in Sunrise. On the contrary. Stick around after dark for the best drinks, best clubs and the best places to meet with friends and make new ones. Stop in at the Congas Night Club "the best rumba in town" with its live music, sizzling Latin atmosphere and a Happy Hour that lasts until 11 p.m. on Fridays.
It's not only the beach that has a selection of fine hotels. Plan to stay in Sunrise and you will be delighted with the options of luxurious hotels that bring you right to the best shopping, dining and entertainment, such as the Doubletree by Hilton Sunrise Sawgrass Mills. Conveniently located off I-595 and Sunrise Boulevard and just a few miles from the airport. Great for business stays, too.
