Steps away from the sand, inside Fort Lauderdale's Yankee Clipper Hotel lurks a passageway into the underwater world of magical mermaids. Once inside the Wreck Bar, you'll forget that you just walked through a hotel lobby. Dripping in nautical garb, the room is lined in fishtanks, and a bit reminiscent of the once popular theme-park ride 20,000 leagues under the sea. After one too many tropical cocktails, you might be wondering whether or not you actually stepped into a submarine. Behind the bar, large windows act as portholes into the hotel's pool, where you may catch a school of mermaids floating by. On Friday nights, be sure to catch the mystical ways of MeduSirena, Fort Lauderdale's own fire-eating mermaid. Show begins at 6:30p.m., but you might want to get there early in order to grab a seat. And to think mermaids only existed in Disney films. . .
