Known as the "Venice of America" because of its extensive network of navigable waterways, Fort Lauderdale welcomes over 10 million annual visitors, most of them attracted by the city's popular beaches and marinas.
Shop till you drop at Lincoln Road and Bayside Marketplace. Take a break from the city and head to Shark Valley and Panther Ridge Conservation Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Miami Beach (Art Deco Historic District & South Beach), Anhinga Trail (in Everglades National Park) and Shops at Merrick Park (in Coral Gables). There's still lots to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Aventura Mall, kick back and relax at Haulover Beach Park, look for gifts at Coral Square, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Economy Candyfor some retail therapy. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, admire the masterpieces at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, make a trip to Times Square, and see the interesting displays at New York Public Library.
