  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Once renowned as the definitive party capital for students on spring break (at least for those not off to Mexico), Fort Lauderdale has shaken off its beer-swilling image and graduated into a sophisticated, stylized city that’s more ‘rich businessman with yacht’ than ‘bong and boobs on the beach’.

    It’s impossible to ignore the beauty of this city, with clear water to be found at every turning and a summer vibe the envy of even other parts of Florida. Getting hold of some kind of boat and floating through it all, or strolling along the beachside promenade, stopping for the occasional dip or taking photos against the golden sands and palms make for an idealized holiday experience.

    In terms of sights, Fort Lauderdale struggles a little beyond its more natural allure, but you will find a selection of museums. Try the Old Fort Lauderdale Museum and its guided tours of the historic downtown, or the sizable Museum of Discovery and Science, that covers everything from space to everglade rebuilding efforts. For flora lovers, there’s the Bonnet House, an old historic building now home to abundant tropical plants, including an extravagant selection of striking, multicolored orchids.

    As much as most visitors revel in the luxury of Fort Lauderdale itself, many of the more exciting destinations are to be found at the end of a quick out of town journey. The Everglades wildlife tours, for example, are a real must see for anyone unfamiliar with the assortments of reptiles (and even endangered panthers) than can be found in amongst the channels. You can watch the sun go down from an incredible cruise ship whilst eating a luxurious dinner, or even take a swamp buggy tour to the home of the Seminole Indians. The island fun of the city’s offshore Polynesian Dinner Show is a sight to behold, too.

    Fort Lauderdale’s certainly a different brand of fun to what it used to be – more Gucci than bargain basement – but it’s the stunning tropical sights of the city that have pushed it that way, and they’re as big a draw as ever. Bring plenty of sun screen and bug spray and a sea-ready stomach and dive into the adventure!

      • Miami Beach
        Technically a barrier island connected to the mainland by a series of bridges, Miami Beach is nevertheless a city all by itself. It has stood as one of the premier beach resorts in the United States for nearly a century, and between its Art Deco buildings, its world-famous nightclubs, its Latin American culture, and the sun and sand, it is extremely easy to see why this is such a favorite place for so many. However, keep in mind that the very nature of Miami Beach screams premier and exclusive, so the rates can be somewhat shocking during the peak winter months. This is definitely not a budget destination, although if you head there in the low season when tourism has dropped off the rates are significantly lower, and in the current economical times you can find better deals than in the past.

        Probably the most popular and well-known part of Miami Beach is South Beach, which is an area known to millions for its prominence in movies and books over the years. It is fun-in-the-sun year-round, which is one of the main reasons that it has remained so popular, giving people access to the beaches no matter the season. But beyond the beach itself you can explore the various surfing opportunities, head out onto the water for some snorkeling, or you can take one of the guided nature tours that include kayaking and snorkeling, as well as canoe trips up some of the mangrove creeks.

        There are also several guided bike tours for people looking to cycle their way around the island, or you can hoof it on foot. Miami Beach is also one of the few places in the United States that offers visitors access to nude beaches, although they are private in nature so you won’t be able to gawk unless you are man (or woman!) enough to bare it all with the rest of the people.
