For anyone who's under the impression that Fort Lauderdale is the Magaluf of the USA, full of rowdy young adults swilling beer and holding wet tee-shirt contests, it's time to think again. It's put a great deal of effort in recent years into changing its image and the people it attracts, shifting from raucous college students to rather a more mature and cultured clientele. Forget the "Ring of Fire" type, boozing contests and Sambuca shots. You're far more likely to see G&Ts and martinis being genteelly sipped these days by a far more sophisticated visitor. Young thrill-seekers can still have a good time in the city's bars and nightclubs, but today's overall atmosphere is decidedly more refined and relaxed.
To get the best out of your visit, be sure to hire a car. That way, you get to have the freedom to visit the scenes and attractions you want to take in at your own pace. And scenes and attractions are awaiting you in abundance. The white, talcum powder beach (one of the cleanest in the US), turquoise sea, palm-tree-lined promenade pathway, glorious sunshine and top-drawer restaurants will tend to deter you from wandering too far from Fort Lauderdale itself, but an enchanting walk along the undulating New River is well worth the effort.
Make the most of your Alamo hire car with a visit to the spectacular Las Olas Riverfront with its vast alfresco shopping mall, packed with restaurants and stores and boasting nightly live entertainment. You can also pick up numerous river cruises there.
For those who like a little adventure, the airboat tour of the Florida Everglades is an absolute must. You'll see an alligator handling session and return home in one piece with a picture of yourself touching or holding one of these magnificent (if terrifying) beasts. This is the kind of experience that'll make you more than grateful that you arranged the hire car. The central Florida Everglades - all 4,200 acres of them - are made up of protected rivers, swamps and marshes, and they're just 30 minutes to one hour by car from Orlando.
Why not make your way to the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park and hop aboard a fabulous 40ft glass-bottomed boat for a cruise along the Intracoastal and then out to sea, where you can try your hand at snorkelling on a spellbindingly beautiful natural reef. No need to fear being out of your depth; you might be out on the ocean but the reef is in just beneath 10 to 20 meters of water and its absolutely teeming with amazing samples of marine life.
