Located along South Florida’s Atlantic coastline, Fort Lauderdale Beach embodies a colorful lifestyle. From the blues and greens of breathtaking natural scenery to the vivid art displays adorning the city, the region has a zest for life that has attracted visitors for decades. Embracing a unique blend of sun-soaked relaxation and urban vibrancy, Fort Lauderdale’s beachfront living offers an irresistible array of perks that captivate visitors year-round. 

“Fort Lauderdale is emerging as a luxury destination,” says Bobby Julien, CEO of the Kolter Group. “The city’s growing popularity has attracted many luxury hospitality brands and fine dining establishments to the region.”

1. Turquoise Waters and White Sand

With 24 miles of shoreline, Fort Lauderdale Beach is always buzzing with activity. Its soft sands beckon for leisurely strolls, shell collecting, or simply relaxing with a book under the sun. Volleyball nets provide the perfect opportunity for a pickup game or bring frisbees and a soccer ball for hours of sporting fun. Adventurers will find water sports galore, including jet skiing, parasailing, stand-up paddleboarding, and more. Fort Lauderdale Beach is also a haven for snorkelers, with coral reefs just offshore teeming with vibrant marine life.

2. The Venice of America

Over 300 miles of canals, yachts, and multi-million-dollar waterfront homes provide the backdrop for endless activity on the water. A hop-on, hop-off water taxi service makes it easy to get around the city in style, while authentic Venetian gondola tours glide guests through the glistening waters. Yachties cherish launching off from the area’s 100+ marinas to head to the Intracoastal Waterway, Atlantic Ocean, or Gulfstream waters for world-class sport fishing. Every October, the highly anticipated Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is one of the biggest boat shows in the world, attracting over 100,000 yacht enthusiasts to celebrate the very best of waterfront living.

3. Outdoor Events for Every Season

Fort Lauderdale Beach is also one of the few places in the world where residents are surrounded by such a diverse array of entertainment, dining, and boutique shopping just a short stroll away. The Las Olas Oceanside Park, commonly referred to as The LOOP, offers residents a palm-tree-lined public park and open-air amphitheater that plays host to a variety of events year-round. Events are created for every interest, ranging from fitness programs and Saturday morning’s Farmers and Artisan Market to Friday Night Sound Waves every summer. The Tortuga Music Festival, Las Olas Arts Festival, and the Land, Sea, & Sky air show are also favored annual traditions.
