Fort Lauderdale Homes for Sale
Venice of America
The city of Fort Lauderdale is in Broward County, and lies along the Atlantic coastline 23 miles north of metropolitan Miami and 42 miles south of Palm Beach. Encompassing approximately 36 square miles, Fort Lauderdale is the eighth largest city in Florida and the largest of Broward County’s 31 municipalities. Embraced by the Atlantic Ocean, New River and a myriad of scenic inland waterways, the city’s intricate network of canals truly live up to its designation as the “Venice of America.”
These waterways have also made this mariner-favorite city the country’s yachting capital. The annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is among the world’s largest of its kind. In addition to being a major building and servicing center for yachts, its many waterways and access to the Bahamas and the Caribbean have made the city a popular stop on yachting vacations.
Fort Lauderdale offers an outstanding quality of life, highlighted by a semi-tropical climate, rich natural beauty and array of cultural amenities. Blessed with sun-filled days all year and pleasing ocean breezes, the world-famous Fort Lauderdale Beach offers premier opportunities for recreation, relaxation and enjoyment.
While the city became a popular spot for college partying in the 1980s, Fort Lauderdale has worked to shed its reputation as spring break party central. Today spring break has taken on a whole new appearance. Visitors now include families and couples, meeting attendees and international travelers.
Fort Lauderdale is establishing itself as one of the most desirable locations for new, expanding or relocating businesses. Once known strictly as a tourism-based economy, the city has repositioned itself as a 21st century luxury destination and is a top choice for international investors.
No matter what you are looking for in your Florida home, you’ll find it in Fort Lauderdale! With convenient amenities and a picture perfect lifestyle, this is the community you’ve been looking for… look no further!
