Explore Fort Lauderdale Like a Local
Located just north of Miami, Fort Lauderdale is not only a major port for cruise ships. It's also a popular tourist destination in its own right, attracting visitors looking to enjoy its well-class beaches, upscale restaurants and quaint canals.
Make the most of the sun, sea and sand by renting with your own vacation rental close to the water.
Flying into Fort Lauderdale
The city is served by the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), which has international as well as domestic connections. The airport lies around 3 miles from Fort Lauderdale's Central Business District. Miami is just 20 miles away and is the nation's primary gateway to Latin America.
To get to the city center, take the Broward County Transit bus Route 1 that connects through the Central Terminal. There are buses to Aventura in Miami-Dade County as well. The Tri-Rail service also connects to the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport Tri-Rail station, where passengers can use a shuttle to the airport. A hired taxi will get you more quickly to your Fort Lauderdale vacation rental.
Cuisine and Drinks
The city pleases discerning foodies who regale in the romantic seaside restaurants and delicious fresh seafood on offer. Taverns serve excellent sandwiches, steaks and salads. Expect Chinese takeaway options (useful when dining in at your Fort Lauderdale vacation rental), cheesecake selections, sidewalk cafes and southern-style comfort food.
A Good Time to Visit
The wet-dry season alternates in Fort Lauderdale's subtropical rainforest climate. May to November can get hot and humid with the risk of passing hurricanes, intense heat and tropical downpours. The best time to visit would be between late November and April, when the weather is decidedly cooler and less humid. Year-end festivities are also fantastic to witness along the waterside.
Fort Lauderdale's tropical climate allows for a 12-month beach season, which is good news to vacationers looking for some sunshine and tanning. Make sure to book your Fort Lauderdale vacation home in advance.
Sightseeing in the City
Spend a day chilling out at the Fort Lauderdale Beach (also called AIA) which is defined by its sea-facing bars, hotels and shops. A European ambiance pervades thanks to a profusion of Continental-style restaurants and European vacationers who throng to this cosmopolitan seaside city. Be sure to stroll through the Riverwalk each evening.
The "Venice of America" all but demands that you explore its waterways by boat or take a river cruise. Shopaholics will appreciate the sheer immensity of the Sawgrass Mills, located in Sunrise, which is a short drive from Fort Lauderdale.
And just two miles north of Fort Lauderdale is the scenic city of Wilton Manors, which caters largely to a gay clientele.
Nightlife in the Venice of America
In the 1980s Fort Lauderdale was at the center of the spring break phenomenon, in which college students from across the United States descended on the city to frolic in the sun by the beach. Ever since, the city continues to entertain revelers who stay for extended periods in Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals. The Strip is home to tons of island-themed clubs offering hookahs, drinks specials, and DJ and karaoke nights.
The classic dive bars are a fun way to meet locals. Musicians will particularly love Sopranos Dueling Piano Bar, where two pianists compete against each other while cheering patrons send their requests. Fort Lauderdale caters to all manner of budgets, as can be seen by upscale establishments in Las Olas, as well as plenty of cash-only bars with cheap eats and drinks.
Recommended is an airplane flight that offers birdseye views of Fort Lauderdale, its stunning coastline, the Everglades and surrounding cities in the region. Greater Broward County, meanwhile, offers tons of activities for families with children, such as the exotic Butterfly World / Tradewinds Park, and the Billie Swamp Safari, with its airboat rides, ecological tours and bird and reptile exhibits. Nature lovers should absolutely plan a visit to the Flamingo Gardens and Wray Botanical Collection, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park and the Florida Everglades Vacation Park, home to wetlands and alligators. Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals make an excellent base from which to explore the region.
While here, why not make a day trip to Miami's internationally-acclaimed South Beach, with its iconic art deco architecture and remarkable skyline. If you're interested in boats, check out the port which is America's busiest yachting center. This city is multi-faceted and merits a visit. Book a Fort Lauderdale vacation home for that next trip!
