Things to do in Fort Lauderdale

Yachts moor in the marina, chic boutiques line the palm-fringed streets and beautiful beaches compete for your attention.



Fort Lauderdale is situated on the east coast of Florida, just north of Miami, and the shoreline stretches as far as the eye can see. The beaches around Fort Lauderdale are Blue Wave certified, with golden sand and turquoise sea which laps the coastline for miles. Pompano Beach is often secluded and pristine. Or try the more populous Fort Lauderdale Beach, with its entertaining bars, cafés, and fantastic promenade – where people skate in the early morning sun. Don’t miss out on a trip to Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, which lies between the beach and the Intracoastal waterway and houses plenty of beautiful wildlife.

Waterfront, canals and waterways

Known as the Venice of America, the canals and waterways of Fort Lauderdale house many yachts and pleasure boats. Take a trip down these pleasant canals to see stunning mansions and mega-yachts, and lose yourself in the labyrinthine channels. Alternatively, water taxis travel along the Intracoastal waterway, which stretches from Miami to Palm Beach, through Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton. For a great view of the surrounding waterways, stay at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six overlooking the famous marina, before heading out to dine along the seafront.



Fort Lauderdale has a fine array of shopping options. From stylish boutiques to huge malls you will find something ideal for your retail needs. Take a trip along Las Olas Boulevard, where chic independent stores peddle high fashion garments and designer goods. If you are looking for a bargain, journey to Sawgrass Mills on the edge of the Everglades, for the world’s largest discount mall. Featuring big name brands at slashed prices, it is treasure trove. Or venture a bit further afield and you can find the impressive Festival Flea Market in Pompano Beach to pick up a trinket or two.
