Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America. Although the European Venice has a lot more history and more monuments, Fort Lauderdale is probably just as popular with tourists - with over 3,000 miles of navigable waterways and miles of golden beaches, it's a great destination.

In recent years Fort Lauderdale has reinvented itself. Fort Lauderdale Beach has undergone a $26-million renovation. You can eat lunch at cafes overlooking the water or visit shops along the beach.  

The International Swimming Hall of Fame is located conveniently right at the Ft. Lauderdale Beach . This facility has a large aquatic complex and a museum that honors the many achievements of swimmers. divers, water polo players, synchronized swimmers, and people involved in water life saving activities. The beach has other attractions as well, such as the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park , a 180-acre park that runs along the beach and which has a number of nature trails, camping and picnicking areas as well as offering canoeing. And at the Terramar Visitor Center in the park there are lots of informative exhibits about the ecosystem of the park.

The city offers many options for dining, entertainment, and shopping. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts features many Broadway shows throughout the year. On Las Olas Boulevard you will find a multitude of art galleries, eclectic boutiques, and sidewalk cafes. Dining options range from Cuban-American cuisine to fresh seafood caught in the Atlantic Ocean.
