: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Aiport
: Fort Lauderdale Beach
Fort Lauderdale is obviously known for its beach, and in that respect it doesn't disappoint. The beach runs several miles in length, and is lined by a palm tree-lined walk the whole way. It's a great place to walk, bike, or blade. And if you want to relax, just throw down the towel and listen to the ocean.
Just across from the beach are numerous night clubs and restaurants...and places just to sit and people watch. Just as much fun is the night life in Fort Lauderdale. Cafes and bars can be found Downtown, in the Los Olas district, along the beach, and in Wilton Manors.
Not far from Fort Lauderdale is the Everglades National Park. If you or your family has never had a ride on an airboat, it's definitely something to try out. It's a great place to meet the alligators (safely!), see exotic birds, and fish.
If you're like me and really like eating, Fort Lauderdale is a great destination. There are literally thousands of restaurants in the area, from upscale eateries that overlook the intracoastal waterway to small cafes along the beach.
There are so many things to do, it's almost impossible to list them all. But take a look at sunny.org - the website gives a great overview of all that Fort Lauderdale offers.
