Say Hello to Greater Fort Lauderdale

Catering to international travelers who want to experience new cultures and beautiful scenery, Greater Fort Lauderdale welcomes tourists from around the world. From the moment you leave the airport, you’re surrounded by blue skies, swaying palm trees and smiling faces – from the beaches to the Florida Everglades.

Yacht Culture

Set sail on a boating adventure over 300 miles of inland waterways and see why Lauderdale is called the Yachting Capital of the World. Embark on a deep-sea fishing charter. Learn to scuba dive with walk-in diving spots that easily bring you face-to-face with amazing marine life.

Hit the Beach

When it comes to beaches, Greater Fort Lauderdale is second to none, with 23 miles of golden shoreline that cover eight beaches – each offering its own distinctive vibe. From the cove-like, family favorite Deerfield Beach, fishing hot spots of Pompano Beach, and retro-cool Hollywood Beach, to the seaside village charm of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and cosmopolitan feel of Fort Lauderdale, there’s a beach to match everyone’s mood. You’ll also find an array of accommodations, from luxury oceanfront resorts to cozy seaside Superior Small Lodging retreats.


Visitors looking for exciting culinary options won't stay hungry for long. Enjoy a uniquely Fort Lauderdale approach to dining with a Water Taxi ride to a dock-side restaurant. Farm and sea-to-table cuisine reigns supreme with seafood caught the same day and prepared for you with Floribbean flair. The Fork Lauderdale dining app, available free for iOS and Android, helps visitors navigate the culinary landscape, with tips from locals, “what’s near me” maps and dining deals.

Slip Into Something Sunny

Get to know the destination that defines breezy chic. Flaunt your sunny sense of fashion at boutiques, department stores and outlet malls. Start your shopping experience at the world’s largest designer outlet mall, Sawgrass Mills and visit luxury stores Prada, Kate Spade, Bloomingdale’s Outlet and Saks Off 5th. Then head to the Galleria Mall. Arrive by car or even Water Taxi, and find sophisticated retailers Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Dillard’s and Coach, along with Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden. There are also trendy boutiques along world-famous Las Olas Boulevard close by. Bargain hunters, don’t miss the Festival Flea Market. This quarter-mile, indoor market features over 500 shops and thousands of deals on jewelry, shoes, apparel and more.

Meet Your Wild Side

Watch for alligators and other wildlife and ride along a river made of grass in the Everglades. Visit the world’s largest butterfly garden and hummingbird aviary. Join a guided nighttime turtle walk, and you just may spy some hatchlings as they scurry out to sea. Then place your bets on fun with Thoroughbred horseracing and slots at Gulfstream Park and Mardi Gras Casino or blackjack and nightclubs at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino.

Greater Fort Lauderdale will surprise you. It will warm your toes, and your soul. And it will fill your photo collection with sunny memories.
