Nestled on Florida’s southeastern coast, Fort Lauderdale is known for its beaches and boating canals. Fort Lauderdale homes are diverse, ranging from upscale condos and downtown high-rises to secluded homes found throughout meandering waterways reminiscent of Venice or Amsterdam but enjoying Florida’s tropical climate. Though less than 25 miles apart, Fort Lauderdale feels a world away from its southern neighbor Miami, the supercharged gateway to Latin America. Fort Lauderdale’s vibrant and diverse community leans more to classic Americana, while still managing to hold onto its Old Florida heritage.
A unique setting within Florida
Elite private schools, notable hospitals and ample greenery thanks to a large park system make this a top destination for professionals, families and snowbirds. Fort Lauderdale’s many attractions include its thriving beachfront and downtown scenes, Las Olas’ shops and restaurants, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Museum of Art/Fort Lauderdale, Coral Ridge Country Club, two yacht clubs including Coral Ridge and Lauderdale, Galleria Mall, the historic Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park and miles of pristine beaches.
Its abundance of stunning waterways are what strike newcomers most. The Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal, New River and vast canal network intertwining finger streets and offer infinite waterfront opportunities for avid boaters or those who just appreciate the serenity of the view. Most daily activity from exercising to yacht clubs to dining takes place on or near the water. It’s a truly unique setting even within Florida.
