Also known as "the Venice of America", Fort Lauderdale is a perfect destination for those who love life on the water. An established network of canals and life on the intercoastal waterway even boasts a "water taxi" network! You'll also find some of the best beaches in South Florida nearby. With more than 4,000 restaurants in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area, we're confident you can find the cuisine you're craving during your visit.

An amazing variety of activities awaits families, couples, and groups of friends. With luxury property options to rival South Beach, but without some of the crowds. It is a different atmosphere, and if you like nightlife, even local people from Miami sometimes refer to Fort Lauderdale as "Fort Liquor-dale".

Planning your trip

Fort Lauderdale is exceptionally convenient when planning a cruise vacation to the Caribbean or even select Transatlantic repositioning sailings. Driving only 10-30 minutes from the cruise terminals at Port Everglades will bring you to Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) and any number of luxurious hotels and attractions, including world-class beaches.

When you should go

Certainly a year-round destination, with plenty to offer throughout the various seasons of South Florida. High season runs roughly December through March, with a lull in September highlighting the peak of the warm, humid summer season.

The weather ranges from relatively warm in the winter months, to downright hot and humid in summer. There's typically a week or two in December or January which see a temperature drop uncharacteristic of the remainder of the year, but which helps the flowering orchids now growing there to bloom. Expect heat and a welcome escape from the cold further north if you're visiting even during October or April.
