Venice of America

Known as the "Venice of America" because of its extensive network of navigable waterways, Fort Lauderdale welcomes over 10 million annual visitors, most of them attracted by the city's popular beaches and marinas. Named after a series of forts built in the 1830s and originally developed as a small community of dairy farms and citrus groves, the city and its surrounding area now boast a plethora of things to do, with over 4,000 restaurants, 60 golf courses, 130 nightclubs, and a dozen shopping malls, plus cultural attractions like museums and markets. When in Fort Lauderdale, do as the locals do and tour the city by cruising its waterways in a private boat or water taxi. Customize your holiday with our United States tourist route planner to create an adventure that suits you.
