Fort Lauderdale



Ft Lauderdale is a city of islands held together by an intricate web of canals, rivers, bays and waterways hundreds of miles long. Needless to say, boating is a favourite city pastime, whether zooming along on a speedboat, enjoying a fishing charter, or cruising the coastline by yacht. Beautiful homes of every size and style make up the bulk of this primarily residential area. By the beach, a leisurely stroll can be taken along the new landscaping wave wall design of the beachfront promenade. But this city is anything but sedate. Once a spring break hot spot, the town still has an energetic and colourful nightlife. Nearby, charming Lauderdale-By-the-Sea is home to one of the only living coral reefs in the US accessible from shore.


Las Olas Boulevard, a shoppers paradise, is the chic new shopping and trendy dining area of downtown. If sports are more your inclination, dozens of golf courses and hundreds of public parks allow you to absorb the great Florida outdoors. Cultural arts are also popular. Water taxis bring theatre-goers from throughout the city to the Performing Arts Centre on the water.
