Fort Lauderdale is one of the most popular Florida Beaches. Famous Spring break revelries are most noted with many Hotels, Restaurants, Nightlife, and more. The beachfront Highway runs adjacent to the beach with with turnout lanes, bicycle paths, a pedestrian promenade, landscaping and a two-mile long flowing beach wave wall. The wall in particular served as a focal point for tourists and residents alike in bringing additional investment and development along the beach. The beach redevelopment project proved that Fort Lauderdale has what it takes to provide a world class beach, convention, vacation and entertainment center. Today, the Fort Lauderdale Beach provides dozens of shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment sites. The beach offers activities such as boating, swimming, roller-blading, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, volleyball, jet skiing and surfing.
More structured events include the McDonalds Air and Sea Show, The Greater Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oceanfest and Beachfest.
Blue Wave Beaches are a special award given to beaches which meet a strict 22 item definition of quality. Fort Lauderdale Beach and 4 other Broward County beaches meet the quality control standards. Some of the requirements for Blue Wave Beaches include monthly water quality control checks, environmental protection and nearby emergency service.
Favorite visitor locations are the Fort Lauderdale Aquatics Center and the Las Olas Marina.
The Fort Lauderdale Aquatics Complex since 1965 has been host to innumerable swimming competitions and the site of dozens of swimming and diving records including ten world records. Las Olas Marina is a relatively new marina with 52 slips intended for larger vessels and offering full amenities.
Because Fort Lauderdale has reinvented itself, moving from a college age beach party to a full-year family friendly resort city, tourists have responded by visiting the Fort Lauderdale area, and particularly the beachfront. The beachfront hotels, motels and condos are occupied year-round. Additional events are constantly being planned with the criteria of family-oriented and serving as a draw for even more visitors to the city and beach. An example is the annual Langerado, a music festival sponsored by the city.
The city welcomes thousands of legitimate spring break vacationers into the city, where they enjoy partying, eating, swimming, sunbathing and snorkeling in the waters off Fort Lauderdale Beach. Side trips such as deep sea fishing, scuba diving and yachting add to the fun at this prime beach location.
