Fort Lauderdale Florida Vacation Travel

More About Fort Lauderdale - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
It's a simple climatic equation. When the snow hits the Northern U.S., residents hop flights to Florida's beaches. Try a non-holiday weekend in November or December if you need to getaway during this peak time, or just wait to sun your buns in full summer rays (pack sunscreen!). With its proximity to the tropical Caribbean, Fort Lauderdale expects coastal showers between June and September.

Where to stay?
Stretching from Hollywood to Deerfield, beachfront accommodations complete with endless palm trees await your stay in Fort Lauderdale. Resorts, hotels and motels abound, so where you stay mostly depends on whether your budget is for pampering or penny-pinching. For gamblers, there are casino cruise ships plus a casino on the nearby Seminole reservation.

What to do?
Stroll your way through the popular shops and restaurants of Las Olas Boulevard. Diners take note: you'll need to reserve a table on the weekends. The Museum of Art will satiate art aficionados and the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center is a fascinating cultural destination. Take the Jungle Queen riverboat to see Fort Lauderdale old and nouveau: the tour takes you through the wildlife of the Seminole reservation and past the gigantic mansions of the intra-coastal waterways. Lastly, check The Riverwalk's event calendar for fun festivals and nightlife year-round.
