The Caribbean is right in front of the door and clearly left its mark on the climate in Fort Lauderdale. It is definitely your own fault if you can’t enjoy life along Florida’s Riviera.
Fort Lauderdale is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the USA, as its most unique feature is a network of over 250 km of sometimes palm fringed canals. Otherwise, this is a typically American small town with a modern city. Extensive parking lots, elegant residential areas and miles of fine sandy beaches complete the picture and make Fort Lauderdale a popular, elegant vacation spot on “America’s Riviera”. The subtropical climate plays its part in this.

Enthusiastic shoppers cannot fail to be happy in this city. Alongside many shopping malls, there are flea markets that are well worth a visit and are famous for high quality and low prices. Along “Las Olas Boulevard”, which runs through the entire city, there are shops, restaurants and cafés. The hive of activity along the waterways indicates that the city offers ample entertainment. Many Broadway shows, discos, jazz cafés, museums, operas and concerts tempt natives and visitors to spend the warm days and nights in many pleasant ways.
Time seems to stand still in nearby Everglades National Park. Day excursions to the coral reef or boat tours for deep-sea fishing are just as popular as “Flamingo Garden” with Florida’s largest tree or the “Hugh Taylor Birch State Recreation Area”, which is an inviting destination for hikers and canoeists. Or what about a small weekend side trip to the Bahamas or Miami Beach, just 45 kilometres from Fort Lauderdale. One thing is certain, Fort Lauderdale offers so much that visitors will find that time runs through their fingers like the bright sand on the nearby beaches.
