It’s popular with tourists for its attractive beaches, known collectively as the Fort Lauderdale Beachfront. Diversity characterizes the city, which also supports a substantial LGBT community.

Fort Lauderdale’s main attractions are its beaches, the Florida Everglades, and the Riverwalk. A cheap way to get around is to take the Fort Lauderdale Sun Trolley, which goes downtown and to the beaches. Or you could try renting a paddleboard. Shops and restaurants line the Downtown Riverwalk along with bars and art museums. Fort Lauderdale is less than an hour away from South Beach, but the city has several hip nightclubs and poolside clubs of its own in the downtown area. Some of these cater specifically to the LGBT crowd. If you want to explore the everglades, airboat tours are available at the Sawgrass Recreation Center and the Everglades Holiday Park.
