Visit Ft. Lauderdale.

Ft. Lauderdale offers travelers a unique chance to enjoy the natural beauty of the Sunshine State. If you’re seeking an escape from the mundane or need more time outdoors, your trip to Ft. Lauderdale will not disappoint. This geographically diverse city has beachfronts, bayous, and bays full of exciting activities and adventures for visitors of all ages.

Wild beauty makes up nearly two-thirds of Ft. Lauderdale’s total area, which means spending time with nature is inevitable during your stay. Get away to the Everglades, a natural attraction whose beauty has been documented and coveted by artists, photographers, and folks looking for picturesque waters and greenery. Spot alligators, tropical fish, colorful birds, wading birds, and so much more native flora and fauna. For more interaction with wildlife, take a trip to Butterfly World, one of the largest butterfly aviaries in North America. Here, you can interact with butterflies and hummingbirds or visit the insectarium. For hiking and other outdoor sports, explore Mizell-Johnson State Park at Dania Beach. Here, you can go fishing, boating, canoeing, and even see sea turtles! You might be lucky enough to spot sea turtle nests during your visit.

To spend time with locals and get a feel for native Ft. Lauderdale culture, head to the downtown area. Visit Las Olas Boulevard for a fun mix of local shops, restaurants, and entertainment. This boulevard boasts canals and waterfront homes, mimicking Venetian aesthetics. Not far from here, you can also explore the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project which displays over two dozen curated contemporary outdoor murals all over Downtown Hollywood. This is also a great area to explore galleries, museums, and fun eats in the city. Finally, for a great experience along the water, visit Riverwalk Park, a downtown waterfront park with winding walkways and attractions. Find a little something for the whole family to enjoy and revel in the lively spirit of Ft. Lauderdale together.
