It's the Fort that counts

Palm-lined beaches, designer boutiques, and big shiny boats, Fort Lauderdale attracts them all. Known as the Venice of America, thanks to its extensive canal system, Fort Lauderdale lies 28 miles from Miami. Get your Floridian adventure off to a cracking start by booking a Fort Lauderdale vacation rental with an ocean view. Stroll along the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk, visit the 18th-century Stranahan House, or take a trip on the Everglades and meet Florida's resident gators. After dark, head to Downtown and sample some of the city's upscale restaurants and swanky bars.

Laud it up on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale

Promising 23 miles of buttery sands fringed with swaying palm trees, the beaches of Fort Lauderdale rival many along this coast. Come and paddle in the Atlantic Ocean, spot dolphins on a sea life safari cruise, or pull in a marlin from one of the many fishing piers. And as the sun goes down, the beachfront wakes up. Kick back with a sundowner and a shrimp cocktail in the array of seafood restaurants and buzzy beach bars which dot Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard.

Beaches, history and shopping, Fort Lauderdale is lord of the fun things

Book a Fort Lauderdale vacation rental in the downtown Riverwalk District and wake up to this lush oasis in the heart of the city. Running alongside the city's New River, this buzzy, tropical walkway is a vibrant attraction lined with shops and galleries, and cafes and bars. And if you don't fancy walking it, hop on the free Riverwalk Water Trolley. Or visit Stranahan House, the former home of the city's founders, Frank and Ivy Stranahan. Built in 1901, it's the oldest house in Broward County and now a fascinating history museum.

Some like it hot—Fort Lauderdale gets steamy in summer

Florida's sunshine record is frankly unbeatable. And Fort Lauderdale has it in spades. While it sees plenty of the hot stuff throughout the year, the best time to visit is between December and April, when temperatures are a comfortable 80 degrees. It's also the busiest time, and Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals get booked up quickly. The summer months are very hot and very humid, and susceptible to heavy rain showers and hurricanes, so pack a strong umbrella, as well as your sunscreen.

Live happily Everglades after in Fort Lauderdale

Perched on Florida's Atlantic Coast, Fort Lauderdale is a popular sun-drenched city 28 miles north of Miami. An hour's drive southwest of the beach city is Florida's iconic Everglades National Park, with 1.5 million-acres of wetlands dominating Florida's southern tip. Made up largely of mangroves, it's best navigated by flat-bottomed airboats which buzz around the glades. There are hundreds of guided boat tours on offer. The area is popular with birdwatchers and nature lovers, and is also home to a wealth of wildlife, from leatherback turtles and manatee, to the snappy Floridian alligator.
