Attractions and Places to Visit in Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is a gorgeous mix of stunning scenery, vibrant attractions, and kid-friendly activities, and will appeal to couples, families, and solo travelers alike. As you would expect in sunny Florida, the weather means that there are a huge range of outdoor attractions here and one of the best things to do is wander around the city at your leisure. If you want some retail therapy while you are in town then you can head to Las Olas Boulevard, and you will find diverse art galleries here as well as fine dining or relaxed eateries depending on your preferences. Of course no trip to Florida would be complete without a visit to the famous Everglades, and you can take to the water here in a number of ways, including air boats, gondolas, and historical riverboats.
