Fort Lauderdale Travel Resources

Fort Lauderdale sees more than 11 million vacationers a years, and it’s easy to see why! The city is oftentimes referred to as the ‘Venice of America’ due to its expansive canal system; however, unlike Venice, Fort Lauderdale isn’t known for its small Venetian gondolas but rather its thousands and thousands of yachts!

Fort Lauderdale is a fairly large Floridian city, and as a result there is something to do for every member of the family.

For the golfer in the family, there are plenty of private golf courses, and many of them world class. If you’re unable to get a tee time at a membership-only establishment, Bonaventure Country Club, both East and West, offers a public course option.  If you’re an avid golf fan, The Fort Lauderdale Open is an annual event you might want to consider planning a vacation around.

Fort Lauderdale has fantastic shopping! If you get the chance, you’ll definitely want to spend some time poking around the Gallery at Beach Place. It’s a massive complex located right on the beach and has some of the most popular shops.

Of course, if you’re traveling to Fort Lauderdale, no trip would be complete without some R&R spent at the beach and Fort Lauderdale has a few to choose from. If you’re with your family, Deerfield Beach might be your best option; they have volleyball courts, and you won’t see a lot of twenty-somethings partying here.  If you’re heading to the beach to be seen, Fort Lauderdale Beach might be a better option. It’s lined with super cute boutique shops, and usually has a fair amount of action.

No matter what your vacation motivations are, Fort Lauderdale is a great option with tons of activities and attractions for all!
