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.
- Pros:the ocean
- Cons:those damn draw bridges
If you are near the beach or Canals, prepare to wait for draw bridges to be raised and lowered. They are pretty... more travel advice
typical hotel. staff was not very helpful, and the cleaning crew could use some instructions. I wouldn't stay here... more travel advice
