Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop & Thunderbird Drive In has been a can't miss attraction in Fort Lauderdale since the early 1960s.  The Swap Shop is located conveniently between I-95 and the Florida Turnpike right on a main road where it's ferris wheel and large sign can be seen.  This 88 acres complex of shopping and entertainment is open 7 days a week 365 days a year.  It operates one of the largest drive-in movie theaters in the world with 14 screens.  During the day, the parking areas for the drive-in hosts a huge Flea Market that starts in the wee hours of the morning and runs all day. There are over 2000 vendors!

Kids and adults will enjoy oogling over the exotic car museum on property or catching a bite to eat at the many international spots on campus to eat. Come during the day and watch the circus, ride the amusement rides, and the giant video arcade.  Then, stay for the night to watch a G/PG movie at the drive-in!  Great way to stay cool on a hot South Florida day is to stroll around the 180,000 square feet of air-conditioned space and then come out in the evening when things have cooled down.  A Farmer's Market featuring local produce and local boutique vendors is also on site to enjoy.  12 million shoppers who visit each year can't be wrong about a great place to find a deal on brand-name products.
