Fort Lauderdale

Outside of being a popular Spring Break destination, Fort Lauderdale is a city known for its beautiful beachfront, luxury hotels, fine dining, shopping, and upbeat, diverse culture and scene.

The city began one of its many major redevelopments in the 1920s during the Florida land boom and became a key U.S. Naval and Coast Guard base during World War II. Today, the city is the county seat of Broward County, Florida; the central city in the 31-municipality Greater Fort Lauderdale area; and a principal city in the Miami metropolitan area.

In 2015, Port Everglades was ranked the third busiest cruise port in the world, accommodating 3.4 million passengers, and the 10th busiest container port in the U.S.
