Wild life in Broward County ranges from the kind you find in the Everglades to an increasingly diverse scene that has moved beyond the screamin'-spring-break vibe to encompass everything from the divey to the debonair. Sure it ain't quite South Beach, but trust us, you'll still have more than a blast here.
