Fort Lauderdale is the largest city in Broward County, located in southeastern Florida. It stretches along 11 km of coastline and extends equally into the marshy plain on its western side along the Intracoastal Canal. This waterfront city is intersected by over 400 km of canals, 250 km of which are navigable. It enjoys a tropical climate characterized by two distinct seasons: hot and humid summers, sometimes rainy, and mild and dry winters with pleasant temperatures that can reach over 20°C in December.

History & Culture

The arrival of the first Spanish settlers in the Fort Lauderdale region took place in the mid-16th century. This event soon triggered the Second Seminole War after an attack on a farm by Tequesta Native Americans. The fort was abandoned after the end of the conflict, and it wasn't until 1911 that it was rehabilitated and became the heart of the city as we know it today. The arrival of the railway then allowed for the gradual settlement of the area. The city experienced rapid growth after World War II, thanks to the return of many former residents and a thriving tourism industry.

Fort Lauderdale also offers numerous performance venues, including the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the largest in the city, and its canals provide opportunities for relaxing cruises. Finally, the city is home to one of the largest aquatic centers in the USA: the International Swimming Hall of Fame...
