Essential information for Fort Lauderdale
To navigate the waterways of Fort Lauderdale, hop on board the waterbus, approx $10 for an unlimited day pass.
Known as the ‘Venice of America’, Fort Lauderdale is a sun-drenched web of waterways and canals, all of which lead out past the city’s golden beaches and into the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Home to a huge array of water-based activities, including deep sea fishing, diving and water skiing, Fort Lauderdale has plenty to keep you busy (even when you’re back on dry land!).
Whether you’ve got a passion for sports, nature, shopping and dining out (or all of the above), holidays to Fort Lauderdale have it all. Start the day with a round of golf at one of Florida’s top courses, grab a bite at a waterfront café, and in the afternoon explore the swampy Everglades and see if you can spot a ‘gator’ (from a safe distance, obviously). At night, stroll down Las Olas Boulevard, window shopping to your heart’s content, then tackle a plate of the best seafood you’ll find for miles around.
Better still, immerse yourself in the glitz and glamour of the waterways, kick back and relax on the beach, or grab your snorkel and dive into the crystal-clear water. Our Fort Lauderdale holiday packages let you do it all. And if you’re after even more fun, you’re also not toofar from those famous Florida theme parks. Ready to plan your getaway?
