Fort Lauderdale and Broward County Feature


Top Reasons to Go

Blue waves: Sparkling Lauderdale beaches spanning Broward County's entire coast were Florida's first to capture Blue Wave Beach status from the Clean Beaches Council.

Inland waterways: More than 300 miles of inland waterways, including downtown Fort Lauderdale's historic New River, create what's known as the Venice of America.

Everglades access: Just minutes from luxury hotels and golf courses, the rugged Everglades tantalize with alligators, colorful birds, and other wildlife.

Vegas-style gaming: Since slots and blackjack tables hit Hollywood's glittering Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in 2008, smaller competitors have followed this lucrative trend on every square inch of Indian Territory.

Cruise gateway: Port Everglades—home port for Allure and Oasis of the Seas, the world's largest cruise vessels—hosts cruise ships from major lines.
