Until we meet again!
The reasons to visit Greater Fort Lauderdale are as abundant as the sun and palm trees. There are 300+ sunshine-y days a year in this South Florida destination, which gives visitors and locals plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature, boating, diverse neighborhoods, events, attractions, and unique only-here specialness that helps define Greater Fort Lauderdale.
It’s easy to spend a day at the beach, with soft sands, beachfront promenades as well as beachfront shopping and dining. With comfortable year-round temperatures, the Atlantic Ocean is always inviting to scuba divers, snorkelers, stand-up paddleboarders, jet skiers, as well as families.
There are also thrills back on land, but it’s not necessarily “dry.” You can get a taste of the craft breweries along the Greater Fort Lauderdale Ale Trail. Enjoy the impressive “wine and dine” scene — a mix of worldly flavors, local favorites and chef-centric genius. The destination also boasts luxury hotels, museums, nightlife, shopping, casinos and family-friendly fun from the Everglades to the arts scene. Days out and about. Nights out on the town. Explore the local way of life that welcomes one and all.
