Located on the southeastern coast of Florida, Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals are scattered amongst a vibrant downtown and waterfront neighborhoods, surrounded by crystal-clear waters, powder-white sand beaches, and stately palm trees.
With the Intracoastal Waterway weaving its way through the city’s canals, channels, and Millionaire’s Row, Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America.” As such, it is a major yachting centre and boater’s paradise. Golfing enthusiasts will be well served with Fort Lauderdale’s championship courses. And, situated just northeast of Everglades National Park—the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and a Wetland of International Importance—Fort Lauderdale is considered the gateway to exploring an unparalleled landscape filled with curious flora and fauna. Hiking, biking, and canoeing, as well as airboat rides, are popular park activities.
As a tony resort-style city, Fort Lauderdale has a thriving arts and entertainment scene. Downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District is a meandering brick-lined promenade that is home to many of the city’s cultural attractions, including the Fort Lauderdale Historical Center, the Museum of Art, the Museum of Discovery of Science, the Florida Grand Opera, and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, while chic Las Olas Boulevard features hundreds of trendy restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques.
