Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Visitors Guide

Fort Lauderdale, Florida was not always the tourist destination you know and love today. In 1838, the city was established during the Seminole War and a trading post was created. Indians would travel by canoe into the city from the Everglades to sell pelts and hides. After World War II, Fort Lauderdale became a major US Navy base, and when the war ended, service members returned creating a population explosion that has been growing ever since!

Now, Fort Lauderdale makes for the perfect beach getaway! With 23 miles of awe-inspiring Atlantic beaches and over 300 miles of Intracoastal Waterway and canals, Greater Fort Lauderdale has been dubbed the “Venice of America!” This, along with watersports for all interests and skill levels, a thriving arts scene, some serious shopping, professional sports, and more, makes Fort Lauderdale a top-notch vacation destination for the whole family!
