Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida: Sunny Beaches, Canals, and Nightlife
About ten minutes down the coast from Fort Lauderdale, the seaside locale of Dania Beach presents a laidback contrast to may of Florida’s tourist-heavy sights. When you’re not soaking up sunshine on the beach, you can browse antiques or sample homemade ice cream in Dania’s quaint town center.
Fort Lauderdale has been called the “Venice of America,” thanks to the intricate canal system that crisscrosses town. These waterways buoy the city’s yachting scene—100 area marinas and boatyards house some 42,000 pleasure crafts. You can hop onto a water taxi to cruise to cultural, historical, and retail destinations, or spend the day sprawled out on a stretch of the city’s 23 miles of beaches. At night, venture to the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District, where you’ll find theaters, museums, and restaurants along the New River.
