Holidays to Fort Lauderdale offer a memorable experience of a sub-tropical city with plenty to do...
When most people think about breaks in the Sunshine State of Florida, they imagine Disney magic in family favourite Orlando, thrill rides in Tampa, hot days and hotter nights in sultry Miami and beaches and lazy days in the Florida Keys. However, holidays in Fort Lauderdale have lots of other pleasures to offer, so consider this sun-kissed city for your next stateside trip.
Many visitors combine their break in this modern city with time in nearby Miami, Orlando or the Florida Keys. But there is plenty to keep you entertained if you choose sub-tropical Fort Lauderdale as your exclusive holiday base. Known as the “Venice of America”, it's a treat simply to wander along the vast canal network of the city and take shady respite in a bistro or waterside café. The skyscrapers of the city centre form an unusual backdrop to the peaceful canals, and you can really feel connected to nature even when surrounded by towers of glass and metal.
Further afield, meanwhile, the children will enjoy a day trip to the Everglades or the beaches of Miami, which are only 40 minutes away. You can also book a place on board the day-cruisers that leave Fort Lauderdale and showcase the nearby island treasures ofThe Bahamas.
Fort Lauderdale is home to a wealth of quality hotels. Many offer resort-style facilities, with swimming pools and places to eat and drink adjacent to the white sandy beaches and the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. And most are geared up for family visitors, with clubs for the children widely available.
Fort Lauderdale is a fantastic holiday destination, and TravelSupermarket can help you to get your Florida break under way today. Check out our price-comparison tool for the best deals on the market.
