Holidays To Fort Lauderdale

Surrounded by rivers, lakes and the Atlantic Ocean, Fort Lauderdale has long been a holiday favourite among beach-goers and boaters.

The city encompasses 37 km of pristine beaches and 110 km of natural coral reef, so it’s the perfect place to soak up some sun. Once a popular American Spring Break destination, this coastal city has (mostly) traded its wild partying ways for more laid-back vibes. Fort Lauderdale holidays are exciting, exotic and yes, even epic. Grab your sunnies and let's go!

Things to Do in Fort Lauderdale

It's only natural to want to set sail on a nautical adventure. Grab your flippers and make like a mermaid to see what's under the sea with snorkelling and scuba excursions along Lauderdale-by-the-Sea's three-tiered reef system. When you come back to the surface, brave the Florida swamp on an Everglades airboat tour or take a short cruise around the local canals. Back on land, Fort Lauderdale holiday packages in downtown will be near cultural attractions like the Museum of Discovery and Science, Stranahan House and the Florida Grand Opera.

Get out of town with one of Wotif’s Fort Lauderdale car hire deals and explore the rest of South Florida. If you wanna be cool as Ice—Vanilla Ice, that is—cruise 43 km south along A1A Beachfront Avenue to Miami's legendary South Beach. Or take your Florida adventure in the other direction and head north to experience all the thrills of the “Theme Park Capital of the World” with one of our Orlando holiday packages.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Forgot to pack your flip-flops and swimmies for your Fort Lauderdale holiday? You couldn't escape to a better town—this is the place to stock up on souvenirs or your favourite American brands. From flea markets to fashion malls, you can pick up necessities—and plenty of nonessentials. The hotspot for haute couture and high-end designer boutiques is the stylish Las Olas Boulevard. For unique and rare finds, check out the popular flea market in Pompano or the Dania Historic Antique Shopping District.

Whether you need to fuel up for a day of shopping or snorkelling, you're spoilt for dining options. Casual dining is the norm and you'll find plenty of grub that’s as all-American as apple pie. But it's not all burgers and fries in Fort Lauderdale—or should we say "Fork" Lauderdale? Indulge your inner foodie with tropical flavours of authentic Cuban or Floribbean (Florida-Caribbean fusion) cuisine.

How about following your sumptuous supper with some entertainment? Head to the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District for live music and theatre, then return to Las Olas Boulevard for quiet cocktails in posh lounges. Once you've gotten a second wind, relive your own spring break days in the youthful Riverfront district, where the party rages to the beats of popular dance and electronica music. Of course, holidays in Fort Lauderdale aren't complete without a late-night walk on the beach.
