Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft have virtually killed the taxi industry. Those big yellow things you see on the road are no different from wild tigers: Their numbers are dwindling, and soon they'll be a thing of the past, something we'll point to in history books, telling our children about. Those were the days — when we used to watch the meter rise from the back seat, we'll tell them as they Twitter away on their iPhone 98s. But there is one taxi in Fort Lauderdale that you can't order on your cell phone. It's big and yellow, but you won't find it on the road. The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi has been stewarding the masses through Fort Lauderdale's waterways for years, and there's no better way to get to know the Venice of America than on the water. Plus, it takes you to some of the best drinking spots in Lauderdale. It's like having a designated driver, except this DD won't guilt you into helping it move by reminding you about that time you threw up in the back seat.
