Fort Lauderdale — No longer a rowdy spring break mecca, Fort Lauderdale charms sophisticated beach bums with luxury resorts, culinary delights, and a burgeoning cultural scene to complement the year-round outdoor activities. Dozens of cruise ships come to call at busy Port Everglades daily, yet Lauderdale refreshingly lacks the crowds of the Keys, Miami's excess, or expense of Palm Beach.

Why Go

For beaches with swaying palm trees and fine sand that are just as beautiful as Miami’s, without the crowds.
