Long Layover - What to do??

I have a layover at FLL airport and it's about 5 hours. I'd hate to spend that much time sitting in an airport, any suggestions of things to do that would be close? We live in Tampa so the beach isn't our thing. We will be there in the morning as well....

On Saturday or Sunday you can take a free trolley from FLL to Riverfront and back to FLL , but if you have luggage not checked through you would have to pay to store it at Bags to Go in the baggage claim area. ( $7 /item I think). as it is not permitted on the Trolley. May not be worth your while for what is really a short time - probably only about four hours net after having to check in through security an hour before ( at minimum lines can be long) . The Trolley ride schedule may not fit your situation ....but it is one possibility for a weekend layover. There are not usually many good solutions.

You can google Sun Trolley Airport for details
