Fort Lauderdale is a unique melting pot of European and Latin American influence, acting as an international bridge to the US. Its vibrant culture combined with its famous weather makes it a prime vacationing destination, with flocks of sun-seeking visitors catching flights to Fort Lauderdale annually.

Once known as the spring break destination, Fort Lauderdale is now home to a more hip and urbane clientele. That’s not to say there’s any shortage of exciting and unique activities. In fact, you’ll find an endless assortment of things to do and see – whether you cruise around on a Segway during the day or wrangle an alligator at night (with professional supervision of course).

And if it’s thrilling nightlife you seek, Miami is less than an hour’s drive away. While you’re not dancing up a storm at one of the many night-time venues, explore Little Havana to get a taste of the delicious Cuban coffee and a quick history lesson on Cuba’s heavy cultural influence on South Florida.

Like most cities, Fort Lauderdale offers a variety of food and drink tours, but with a Florida twist. Enjoy a group cycling tour while sipping on cool beverages, or take a food tour to sample delicious Latin American cuisine in some of the city’s oldest and most famous restaurants.

The varying geographical landscapes are a must for nature buffs. From fine sandy beaches with crystal blue waters to the swampy everglades, Fort Lauderdale is filled with endless adventures. The city’s canals are great for a lazy trip down the river, or enjoy a thrilling Airboat ride through one of the world’s most complex ecosystems – now also the world’s largest environmental restoration project in history.

Because of its high tourism appeal, you’ll find plenty of places to stay - whether you prefer an up-scale beachside rental, a splashy hotel or a funky hostel. But be wary of high season, as accommodation can book up quickly – particularly during the frequent music and cultural festivals.
