Intracoastal Waterway and Skyline of Fort LauderdaleFort Lauderdale is the second largest metropolitan area in South Florida after Miami and is located in Broward County, just north of Miami-Dade County. Port Everglades competes with Miami and Port Canaveral near Orlando for cruise traffic and comes in a close third among all cruise ports in the world. The port is west of the narrow coastal islands on the Intracoastal Waterway and is accessible from the Atlantic through an inlet at the southern end of Fort Lauderdale..

While it is the location of the 60's film, Where the Boys Are, Fort Lauderdale long ago shed its image as a Spring Break mecca, though a few relics of the era remain, such as the Elbo Room. Nowadays, you are more likely to see families than college kids. Near the beach area is a region known as the "Venice of America" because of its network of canals. The best way to see the canals and the houses of rich and famous residents is to take an Intracoastal waterway cruise. For high-end shopping and dining, Las Olas Boulevard is a good choice. In western Broward County, you can ride an airboat on the everglades. And for a little history, visit the Bonnet House or the Stranahan House, both built when Fort Lauderdale was an outpost at the edge of the Everglades..
