Amazing Places: Adventures in Fort Lauderdale

If you dream of a carefree, casual summer vacation in Florida, Fort Lauderdale should definitely be on your shortlist.

The eighth largest city in the famous U.S. state, nicknamed the “Sunshine State,” has everything that makes for a successful beach vacation – and then some.

Welcome to the Venice of America

Fort Lauderdale is not called the “Venice of America” without reason. Smaller and larger canals crisscross the entire city. If you have the money, you can live on one of these canals and park a fancy yacht in front of your property instead of a car.

The really big boats can be admired at Port Everglades. This is where the cruise ships dock that either sail up to New York, head for Mexico or have the islands of the Caribbean as their destination.

The port is a real sight to behold, as it not only houses the largest container terminal on the East Coast of the U.S. but is also the largest cruise port in the world. Ten large cruise ships and more can be docked simultaneously, and more than 50,000 passengers can be handled daily.

Fort Lauderdale is the ideal gateway to this national park with its unique and fantastic flora and fauna. Whether you call the Everglades a wet marshland or a swamp, a ride on an airboat over the shallow waters should always be one of the highlights during a Florida vacation. Parts of the Everglades are now a protected national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Outdoor Adventurers in Fort Lauderdale

Due to its extensive canal system, sunny Fort Lauderdale is known as “America’s Venice.” And these canals are exactly the reason why the city is a popular destination for outdoor adventurers.

That’s why I couldn’t help but book a private yacht, enjoy the view of the beautiful waterways and marvel at the incredible luxury estates.

But, of course, you can get away cheaper by boarding a water cab. You can hop on and off at all kinds of stops throughout the day with your ticket.

Fort Lauderdale has some of the most beautiful beaches in the U.S. – Golden Sand and Turquoise Water make for a picture-perfect setting.

But once you’ve admired this beauty enough, there’s no need to get bored: This chic beach town has plenty more to offer. The promenade is flanked by a white, wave-shaped and 3 km long wall.

Walk or skate along the promenade under swaying palm trees and take a break in the many pretty open-air restaurants, cafés and boutiques.

Yacht Charter in Fort Lauderdale

An ultimate adventure awaits those who choose to charter a yacht in Fort Lauderdale. The “Yacht Capital of the World” is, first and foremost, a vibrant boating community and a top sailing destination thanks to its gorgeous weather, calm turquoise waters, and yachting culture.

If you don’t arrive by yacht, you have many options for chartering your own floating palace during your stay. You can find great offers to experience the maze of South Florida waterways at Fort Lauderdale Yacht Charter – an exciting experience everyone should have at least once.

Fort Lauderdale has a very long tradition as a maritime city. Starting with early settlements and shipyards along the New River to the world’s largest boat show – the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding Greater Fort Lauderdale area have numerous options for overnight accommodations, fueling, restocking, and an abundance of restaurants, hotels, shopping, and land-based entertainment.

Beach Diving in "Lauderdale by the Sea"

“Lauderdale by the Sea” is a gorgeous coastal resort that has been nicknamed the “Beach Diving Capital of South Florida.”

From the beach here, divers can plunge right into the waves and swim comfortably to the coral reefs.

If you like fishing, Anglins Fishing Pier is the perfect place for you. The many restaurants in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, with their colorful chairs, invite you to linger.

Or you can play a game of “Four of a Kind” or Jenga with the whole family on the oversized playing fields in the city center.

Swamp Boat Rides at Sawgrass Recreation Park

Sawgrass Recreation Park offers a different kind of water adventure. On a swamp boat tour through the Everglades, you’ll be plowing through the water.

Since the engine is not underneath the boat, the boat can reach shallow waters that other types of boats cannot. After the wild swamp boat ride, visit the exotic animal parks to see the endangered Florida panther and black leopards or hold a baby alligator in your arms.

For me it was an absolutely unforgettable experience to be allowed to carry such a tiny alligator myself once.

An absolute Must See: The Everglades

Fort Lauderdale is the ideal gateway to this national park with its unique and fantastic flora and fauna.

Whether you call the Everglades a wet marshland or a swamp, a ride on an airboat over the shallow waters should always be one of the highlights during a Florida vacation. Parts of the Everglades are now a protected national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

To this day, great wildlife sightings can be made in the Everglades. Raccoons, wild flamingos, herons, alligators, crocodiles, ibises, storks – the list could be continued endlessly.

The Everglades is also home to several Native American tribes that have reservations here. Deep insights into the history of the Seminole tribe and the culture of the Indians are offered by the Ah-Tha-Thi-Ki Museum in the Everglades.

You should bring a little time with you for this place, which combines great scenic beauty with an effort to preserve the fate of Native Americans from oblivion.

Deep-sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale

Are you always looking for adventure? Then you should try deep-sea fishing. Greater Fort Lauderdale is the place to be. Some of the most sought-after game fish live here year-round.

We had been fishing a few times before but never deep-sea fishing. And I can say everyone was really impressed. Our first catch of the day was a 2-meter-long and over 100 kg sandbar shark.

Later we caught some pretty big mackerel, barracuda and tuna. And a beautiful, although not quite so capital, Mahi Mahi was even there.

Great Fort Lauderdale - City Adventure

You can also take a leisurely stroll through town on foot or explore the city on a Segway or by bike. Greater Fort Lauderdale has a great bike rental concept.

Our stay in Fort Lauderdale was just great. I can’t wait to go back.

Convince yourself of this great travel destination! And get ready for unforgettable outdoor adventures.
