Landing in Fort Lauderdale, you’ll immediately understand why this beach playground is called the “Venice of America.” Hundreds of yachts and mansions line the city’s 266 km of inland waterways, snaking through the heart of the city and its outlying communities.
Fort Lauderdale has more than its share of sunshine, sandy beaches and water activities. But it also has a rich restaurant, nightlife and cultural scene. Venture outside and launch your adventures on land or on water. You can glide along in an Everglades airboat and search for alligators or learn a new sport. Try a surfing or paddleboard lesson, or head to the links for a round of golf. Watch out for the water hazards though – courses here are known to include alligators!

Think of Florida’s Tampa Bay area, which includes the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater, as a crescent moon-shaped stretch of land connected by a web of coastal bridges. Serene shorelines and rustic fishermen’s shacks and restaurants coexist alongside slick art museums and funky boutiques. From sandy beaches to swanky bistros, it’s all here within a short drive. Some of the beaches, like Shell Key State Park and Caladesi Island State Park, require a boat to access and can provide complete seclusion.
