Ft Lauderdale

Known as the "Venice of America", Ft Lauderdale is where you will find 23 miles of stunning Atlantic shoreline in one of the fastest-growing communities in the nation for small business, high tech, and foreign trade.  It is ranked sixth in the nation for job growth by Southern Business and Development magazine

There is much to discover in Fort Lauderdale beyond the 3,000 hours of sunshine, 30,000 boats, 165 miles of waterways, and 7 miles of beach.  Immerse yourself in a wide variety of cultural entertaiment from museums to fine art, Native American archeology, dinosaurs and outer space.  There's even a museum dedicated to the art of swimming. Just minutes from the beach is the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale, home to cultural attractions, shops, parks and restaurants.  Here you will find the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the Museum of Discovery and Science with its Blockbuster 3D IMAX Theater, the Florida Grand Opera, Old Fort Lauderdale, the Museum of Art, the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival, and the Stranahan House.  Also popular is Riverwalk, a meandering promenade that runs along the New River. The 22-block district includes chic Las Olas Boulevard and Las Olas Riverfront: an area with fine dining spots and chic boutique  purveying a range of goods from European antiques and original needlepoint to clothing and stained glass lighting. 

With a bevy of courses designed by the nation's top golf course architects, and such competitions as the PGA tour Honda Classic, Fort Lauderdale is a pro on the golf circuit.  Golfers disappear on one of the area's more than 56 private and public golf courses.
