About Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale is a very popular tourist destination, offering 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and a year-round warm climate. It’s a great place to stay, with more than 4,000 restaurants, 63 golf courses, 12 shopping malls, 16 museums and much more to keep everyone entertained.
The beach and promenade in Fort Lauderdale is a popular area by all accounts. The white-sand beach is one of the cleanest in the country and has dedicated family-friendly areas. Also popular is the Riverwalk and Las Olas Riverfront, which connects a number of restaurants and shops with other sights.
And the Museum of Discovery and Science is a must-see for anyone with an inquisitive mind. The 52-foot kinetic energy sculpture alone is well worth seeing.
Cruise lines visiting Fort Lauderdale currently include Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean and Princess Cruises.
