I have approx 4-5 hours to spend in Fort Lauderdale before catching my flight home. Are there any public lockers at Port Everglades to store luggage, e.g. lockers similar to ones at train stations and the airport?

No, there are not. Once you claim your luggage and clear immigration/customs, you are deposited outside the terminal. Your best bet would be to take a taxi to one of the hotels on 17th Street (the Marriott would be my choice) and check your bags with the hotel and then go do what you want to do.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Tom! About how much does a taxi ride cost to 17th Street? from the map, it looks walkable. Also, would the hotels take our luggage even though we would not be staying there as guests?

Maybe I should get rid of my luggage, i.e. check in early at the airport, and then go back into town?!?

The taxi fare is minimal (about $5) and the bellman will gladly accept your luggage. Of course, you should tip generously for the favor.

Most airlines will only let you check your luggage within 4 hours of your flight's departure making it difficult to head back into town. However, you could do it in Ft. Lauderdale as the airport is so close to everything.
