Explore Ft. Lauderdale

You probably know Ft. Lauderdale best for its stunning golden beaches. That’s understandable, considering there’s 23 whole miles of them and they’re an easy walk from most hotels and restaurants. Sandcastles, volleyball, open-air dining, and more all await at any of Ft. Lauderdale’s certified Blue Wave Beaches. However, when you’ve had enough of the beach (if such a thing is even possible!) there’s lots more to explore in the wet and wild world of the Greater Ft. Lauderdale area!

Ft. Lauderdale’s nickname is the Venice of America and it’s easy to see why. Discover and explore all of the many canals and waterways of Greater Ft. Lauderdale, and you’ll see where the nickname comes from! Whether you’re enjoying a chartered cruise aboard a luxury yacht or embark on one of Ft. Lauderdale’s riverfront cruises, you’ll be able to soak up all the sights and sounds, from glittering marinas to beautiful blue waters.

You can also explore these gorgeous waterways under your own power by renting kayaks, jet skis, and paddleboards! Ft. Lauderdale also offers charters that allow you to snorkel or scuba dive under the sea and explore an amazing aquatic world you have to see to believe! Discover Greater Ft. Lauderdale’s 69 miles of natural coral reef just offshore or check out incredible shipwrecks from the seafaring days of Florida’s past.
