Living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

 

 

Established in 1911 Fort Lauderdale is a popular waterfront city famous for its unique geographic position amongst the vast waterways of the Atlantic Ocean, In combination with 7 miles of white sand beaches, diverse culture, hip restaurants, and exciting entertainment options Fort Lauderdale has attracted world-class real estate, including many properties with outstanding waterfront views.

Fort Lauderdale is often compared with Venice, Italy for the number and engineering style of its canals, called finger islands. The canal system was initially implemented by Charles C. Rodes in the early 1920s after studying the Venetian parallel canal system. It was then copied and expanded upon by other Florida pioneers of the time, thus making way for the city’s moniker “Venice of America.”

Located in the middle of the Southeast Florida landscape, approximately 25 miles north of Miami and 45 miles south of West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale is surrounded by the cities of Pompano Beach and Lighthouse Point to the north and Dania Beach and Hollywood to the south. With major highways I-95, Florida’s Turnpike, and the Sawgrass Expressway servicing the area Fort Lauderdale residents can navigate all that the area has to offer with relative ease. City-dwellers can utilize one of the varieties of public transportation available such as the Broward County Transit bus system or Florida’s Brightline express train that is currently expanding service throughout the state of Florida. Residents enjoy easy access to domestic and international travel via the Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport just a 10-minute drive from the city center or cruising on one of the luxury cruise liners found arriving and departing Port Everglades, one of the largest ports in the country and home to Royal Caribbean Cruise lines.

Fort Lauderdale has a booming culture, nightlife, and restaurant scene attracting locals and tourists alike. Favorites include The Performing Arts Center and the annual Tortuga Music Festival, Winterfest Boat Parade, and the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. The Performing Arts Center, built in 1990 and sitting on the banks of the New River downtown, hosts hundreds of plays, concerts, and special events annually.

The number of parks has exploded in recent years with the city creating more and more open spaces and sports complexes. That goes for outside entertainment as well, with boat rentals, bicycle rentals, concerts, parasailing, diving, and art shows all available at your fingertips.
