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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Anhinga Trail and Las Olas Beach. You'll get in some beach time at South Beach and Fort Lauderdale Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Fort Lauderdale: John D. MacArthur Beach State Park (in North Palm Beach), Haulover Beach Park (in Bal Harbour) and Miami Beach (Lincoln Road, Collins Avenue, & more). There's more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Bayside Marketplace and stop by Calusa Coffee Roasters.

To find maps, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Fort Lauderdale journey builder tool .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport, Miami International Airport and Palm Beach International Airport. In May, daytime highs in Fort Lauderdale are 35°C, while nighttime lows are 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
