Fort Lauderdale has become a place for Liz and I to hop on a cruise ship bound for the Caribbean. Port Everglades serves so many cruise ships: Carnival, Princess, Celebrity,Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Holland America and more. My wife and I have enjoyed several cruises from this port.
According to the locals they call Fort Lauderdale "The Venice of America" due to its expansive and intricate canal system. To me it's as if you are comparing apples and oranges but hey its their right to be proud of their city.
Fort Lauderdale has so many options for visitors: beaches, boating, shopping, cruising, dining and countless water sports.
When we want to escape the cold New York weather Fort Lauderdale is always a good option whether it's for a weekend or longer.
Fort Lauderdale has many hotels to accommodate any type of travel from budget to luxury. Many hotels are close to the water or the beach which makes it a nice fun in the sun trip.
The area restaurants and bars offers some incredible drinks as well as fresh seafood. For some excellent food and drinks; hop on a water taxi and try one of the many waterfront restaurants. My wife and I love the 15th Street Fisheries for their delicious peel and eat shrimp and gator bites.
