Top Reasons to Go to Fort Lauderdale

Blue waves: The cerulean waters of the Atlantic Ocean hugging Broward County's entire coast form a 23-mile stretch of picturesque beaches between Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.

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

Everglades adventures: The untamed landscape of the Everglades—home to alligators, crocodiles, colorful birds, and other elusive wildlife—is a short trip from beachfront luxury.

Emerging arts scene: Experience the local contemporary art scene as it grows into a major force in the region.

Cruise gateway: A dozen supermodern terminals serve about 4 million cruisers and ferry guests a year at Port Everglades, one of the busiest cruise ports in the country.
