About Fort Lauderdale, FL

Often called the "Venice of America" with more than 165 miles of navigable waterways, Fort Lauderdale is the largest of Broward County's municipalities. Countless canals with boats moored at the docks and seawalls add the flavor of Old World romance to the city's natural charm and modern beauty. Water taxis transport both visitors and residents to key destinations and offer their customers "Frequent Floater Miles." Recreation has always been a highlight of living in Fort Lauderdale; and residents spend a good deal of time dining at waterfront restaurants, swimming at the beach, boating, sailing or deep-sea fishing. The price of the downtown district is the Riverwalk, a panoramic connection between the arts and science, business, shopping and historic districts. Intellectual and cultural activities have long been a mainstay of Fort Lauderdale life. Nature lovers will thrill to the $40 million New World Aquarium, while aficionados of the arts will enjoy the magnificent Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
