Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
The 'Venice of America'. With more than 300 miles of navigable inland waterways and 40,000 resident yachts, it’s no wonder Greater Fort Lauderdale is known as the "Venice of America." Although once known primarily as a mecca for college students on spring break, Fort Lauderdale has become a dynamic family-oriented vacation destination. Families can enjoy water taxi rides to various entertainment venues or stroll along the meandering Riverwalk to many downtown cultural sites.
