Welcome to Ft. Lauderdale

 
Known as the Venice of America, Fort Lauderdale epitomizes tropical South Florida – a vibrant city with vacation/resort amenities. With seven miles of beautiful beaches and 165 miles of local waterways, watersport activities and boating are the soul of the city.
 
Fishing, sailing, swimming, skim-boarding, and surfing abound. The Atlantic Ocean offers the perfect setting for windsurfing, jet skiing, and, snorkeling and scuba diving enthusiasts can observe tropical undersea life, sunken ships, and communities of coral reefs.
 
Turquoise waters with palm trees and magnificent orange-pink sunsets captivate local residents and tourists. Chic waterfront restaurants and shopping exceed anyone’s expectations.
 
Fort Lauderdale is the center for cruise ship lines, yachting, boating, cultural arts, and fine dining. Its proximity to Miami and its airport makes it so attractive for residents. Fort Lauderdale residents can easily sail over to the Bahamas, the Keys. Beaches range from more touristy to serene with few bathers.
 
Water taxis carry residents from spot to spot which is a unique luxury. The city’s heart, Las Olas downtown, hosts the Las Olas Food and Wine Festival each year in April. (everfest.com.) The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in late October- early November draws large crowds of people who want to preview the current hot boats and purchase. (flibs.com).
 
Downtown Las Olas is home to beautiful shops, fine restaurants, and art galleries. It draws residents and tourists alike in season. Mini City Guide. Downtown is the hub of law firms and companies. Mini Restaurant Guide.
 
Living in the city of Fort Lauderdale: Homes and condos abound and a buyer can find condos on the beach along A1A, called the Ocean Highway, and homes at all price points throughout the city. There are beautiful homes lining the Intracoastal waterway, many in gated communities.
 
Fort Lauderdale Beach has undergone a $26-million renovation, complete with wide brick walkways, lush landscaping, and a “wave wall” with neon accent lighting. You will find jogging, biking, and just taking a stroll a pleasure in this new setting.
 
Whether you are looking for an oceanfront condo, small or luxurious home, you can find it. The city has everything – including a wide spectrum of the arts, and museums. Did we mention its close proximity to the Florida Keys, to Palm Beach (40 minutes north).
