Welcome to the “Venice of America”— a sophisticated system of waterways bobbing with mega-yachts and cruisers exploring the crystalline waters of this South Florida oasis marked by golden beaches, arts, attractions, world-class golf and unlimited on- and off-water adventures. You can get onboard the Fort Lauderdale boating lifestyle by renting a boat, taking a sightseeing cruise, or hopping aboard a water taxi to destinations such as Hollywood where you can ante up at casinos like the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. The Greater area has numerous options for gamers ready to wage their luck. Such attractions, splendid year-round weather, scenic beaches, sub-tropical climate and upscale modern marvels around every corner have drawn intrigued business and leisure travelers, spring breakers, romantic couples and celebrities alike for decades, though it’s a far cry from its raucous 1961-mid-80’s spring-break reputation. Renovated and refreshed, this contemporary Lauderdale area with upscale stores and international cuisine flourishes as one of the top destinations in the world—Port Everglades alone is a favorite for more than 35 cruise ships and the Navy. There’s so much to do on land, one mustn’t ever feel like a fish out of water. Numerous attractions are just minutes away from the beach like downtown’s Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District and the famed Las Olas Blvd.
There’s much more to do than just water play in Fort Lauderdale. Just minutes away from the beach is downtown’s Lauderdale’s Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District, a brick-lined meandering promenade with shops, parks, restaurants and cultural attractions like the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Museum of Discovery and Science with its AutoNation 3D IMAX Theater, Florida Grand Opera, Fort Lauderdale Historical Center, Stranahan House and the Museum of Art. Las Olas Blvd. is one of the most architecturally unique, authentic, and eclectic shopping and dining districts, with more than 30 alfresco dining options, 10 international art galleries, two world-class museums and 65 unique boutiques filled with runway-style fashions, accessories and gifts.

The 1961 hit movie Where the Boys Are, starring Connie Francis, made Fort Lauderdale Beach ground zero for the college spring-break craze that remained until the mid-1980s. It’s still a popular destination, but the city tempered the wild, crazy reputation with upscale renovations and area refinement.
Who says it never snows in South Florida? Flurries actually fell on this sunny south Florida paradise in 1977, the first time in recorded meteorological history. Fort Lauderdale is also considered the western corner of the Bermuda Triangle.
