Fort Lauderdale Travel Guide

Fort Lauderdale Hotel Overview

Fort Lauderdale Shoreline
Fort Lauderdale's hotels are nestled along the beaches, on the 17th Street Causeway and near the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Other hotels are scattered throughout the area (along the interstate, for example), but most visitors prefer those close to the beach. Boutique-style small lodgings on Birch Road and the vicinity are located conveniently a block from the beach and also have water-taxi access. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea also has boutique lodgings directly on the ocean or across the street from the ocean. A list of gay-friendly accommodations is available from the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Hotel rates rise during high season (late November-April), and rooms are often hard to come by, so book early. You'll find the best values during shoulder seasons: September to mid-November and May-late June.

It is the principal city in huge Broward County, two-thirds of which is Everglades swampland. What isn't swampy includes 23 mi/37 km of wide white-sand beaches and 30 other municipalities.   Click here to see the full Fort Lauderdale report »

South Florida was the ancestral home of the Seminoles and more than a dozen other Native American tribes, but that began to change in the 1830s when U.S. Army soldiers started clearing trails into the area. The city's namesake, Maj. William Lauderdale, built an outpost at the mouth of the New River. Around the same time, runaway slaves sought refuge in the Everglades, where they banded together with the Seminoles to battle white settlers.   Click here to see the full Fort Lauderdale report »
