Greater Fort Lauderdale

Boasting 300 miles of inland canals that have earned it the nickname "Venice of America," Greater Fort Lauderdale is best explored on the water -- or in it as water temperatures hover around 79 degrees all year. Glide past art and entertainment districts, nature preserves and mansions aboard a yacht, paddleboard, kayak or water taxi.

Greater Fort Lauderdale has plenty of dusk-to-dawn options to satisfy night owls, so don’t turn in early. Kick back and laugh at a comedy club or test out some of the area's craft brews at 26° Brewing or the wines at 33rd Street Wine Bar. Don cowboy boots and two-step at a saloon or dance the salsa to burn off some energy.
