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.
Peanut Island Park and Fort Lauderdale Beach Park will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary and Anhinga Trail.

The adventure continues: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, identify plant and animal life at Lion Country Safari, examine the collection at Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum, and kick back and relax at Haulover Beach Park.
