The Venice of America

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is a beautiful coastal city on the Atlantic Ocean, famed for both its beaches and its boats.

The boats here aren’t reserved solely for the sea though – there’s also an intricate canal system that wends its way through the city, lending Fort Lauderdale a quaint charm, and the nickname ‘Venice of America’. Here, you can take a trip on a gondola, shop till you drop on Las Olas Boulevard, or simply stroll along the beachfront in almost guaranteed sunshine – all at your own gentle pace.
