Fort Lauderdale offers its residents an urban environment where people are laid-back and the streets are busy. It’s the perfect spot for young professionals looking for an on-the-go lifestyle — there are miles of sandy beaches for them to surf and swim in, a vibrant nightlife to enjoy with friends, and easy commutes to and from work. It’s also the ideal location for families who want to grow their community and live an active lifestyle.

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

Fort Lauderdale does a fantastic job keeping up with the appetites of its busy residents — there’s a wide selection of restaurants for any occasion or mood.

Step into the glitzy Bombay Darbar if you’re hankering for traditional Indian cuisine, complete with craft cocktails, a buzzy atmosphere, and exceptional service. Ready to taste the best of Italy? Cafe Vico Restaurant is a classy Italian eatery where you’ll enjoy rich, authentic flavors and have the chance to eat your meal under the stars. Casa Sensei is a must-try Pan-Asian restaurant that sits right on the canal for a meal you won’t soon forget. Other hot spots include La Vie Lebanese and Shooters Waterfront.

Fort Lauderdale has multiple shopping centers that offer everything from designer shoes to one-of-a-kind pieces. Start at the Northridge Shopping Center, where you’ll have access to clothing stores, hair salons, supermarkets, eateries, and even a fitness center. If you’re on the hunt for a one-stop shop, this is the perfect place for you. At the Harbor Shops, you’ll be able to shop in the morning, dine in the afternoon and head out to the water in the evening. For something right on the beach, Beach Place is a three-level shopping plaza you can enjoy every day of the week.

Things to Do

One of the biggest attractions in Fort Lauderdale is the International Swimming Hall of Fame, which has memorabilia such as Olympic medals and pools on display. The Jungle Queen Riverboat is one of Fort Lauderdale's most treasured attractions. Maybe you want to book a sightseeing tour and float down the canals — or perhaps you’re looking for something a little more, such as a tropical isle dinner and a show where you’ll watch fire dancers. Want to hold a lemur? The Jungle Queen Riverboat tours can make it happen!

The Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is a beautiful place to spend the day hiking to the freshwater lagoon, trying your hand at fishing, or renting kayaks and paddleboards for some fun out on the water. It’s also right beside Fort Lauderdale Beach, where the sand is white and the waves are calm. For some more beach fun, check out Las Olas Beach — one of the busiest beaches in the area thanks to its incredible sands, swaying palms, and the restaurants and stores that line the shoreline.
