Centrally located between Palm Beach and Miami on the Atlantic coast, Fort Lauderdale is the largest city in Broward County and the eight largest city in the state of Florida. Often referred to as “the Venice of America,” Fort Lauderdale is defined by an immense system of inland waterways that offer many residential properties waterfront amenities at affordable prices. Once heavily reliant on tourism alone, the economy of Fort Lauderdale has grown to include marine, manufacturing, finance, insurance, real estate, high technology, avionics/aerospace, film and television production.
Downtown Fort Lauderdale and the beachfront offer many mid- and high-rise condominiums, luxury estate homes and even some moderately-priced single family neighborhoods. Some of the most desirable single-family neighborhoods, such as Coral Ridge, Victoria Park and Lauderdale Harbours, are located just northeast and southeast of the downtown core. Residents of Fort Lauderdale enjoy the world renowned beaches, restaurants and bars, shopping, and diverse cultural activities that are supported by the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Museum of Discovery and Science, Museum of Art, and Old Fort Lauderdale Village and Museum. Fort Lauderdale offers its residents a more metropolitan environment with an opportunity to enjoy an outdoor South Florida lifestyle.
