I spent a year in Ft Lauderdale when I was 23. It is known as the Venice of the U.S. with all the water canals. I was lucky enough to live right off Los Olas on one of the many canals and just a mile from the beach. A truly unique living experience. Back then it was a party town. It still is, but the City has built a beautiful boardwalk on the beach and now caters to the European/family crowd as well. Not as expensive or exclusive as Miami Beach, but it still has that South Florida feel.
